hello everyone, been looking around the web for awhile, I don’t join in many social online groups but a lot of other sites always refer people to this site for 2.3 turbo stuff so I figured I give it a try.. I feel I’m a lucky car owner I have a original 2.3 turbo GT mustang from 1983 one of 602-604 (depending on which publication you read) made for that year. I’ve owned it since 1989. It’s been through a lot. So it’s time to do a full restoration and a few modifications to improve upon it. As I get started I’ll write in on where it’s at and problems I have come to and see if there is any help out there when I’m stumped with a repair. Thanks for reading.

I first fell in love with cars when my first boss took me for a ride in an old air-cooled Porsche 911 in Sydney. I am a keen car fan interested in oil cars, supercars, little-known classic racing cars, car memorabilia, and just about anything related to vehicles. This car definitely gives me a complete delight. I'm wondering precisely what modifications you want to make to provide you with a recommendation. Based on the table on https://poweretty.com/, the GT mustang car from 1983 has 315 horsepower. That way, he could use a little more power. I hope you will share the details with us.
