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 nato.com.That 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:

Hey. Also, check out www.forced4.com 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.
