i am a newbie and did some searching and found alot of different mods to do to a turbo 2.3. I am new to the Ford turbo cars. I have built a twin turboed 72 montecarlo blowthru with a carb. So i am not to familiar with the Ford fuel injection and ignition system. Anymore help would be appreciated. By the way i just picked up a 86 turbo automatic xr7 for 600 bucks.

Welcome to the club! If you're really interested in modding the 2.3,check out site is awesome for the turbo coupes and XR7's. They have a section on mods to start you off with.The three mods that give the most for the least money would be a K&N cone filter,a Gillis adjustable boost valve,and a better breathing exhaust.Congrats on your find with the Cougar XR7! I have an 86 Thunderbird Turbo Coupe with the three-speed automatic as well.I like the three-speed better than my 95 T-Birds tranny. But anyway,enough of my rambling,and welcome to the club!:cool:

Ford sites

The sites listed above are some awesome sites for info and pleasure.

Hey. Also, check out if you haven't found it already. Yeah, I know, it's full of Crustangs and the like, but at least they got the engine right. Tons of tech articles, and good links.
