B230FT - that's the better of the 2.3 liter turbocharged engines. Still has the original turbo, but has upgraded everything else.

They make fun of the babyseat at the dragstrip while I beat up on Mustangs.

It has a lot done already - better induction, better injectors, chips and a manual boost controller. Currently at around 15 psi. Future upgrades include the 15G turbo from the 850T and a 3" exhaust along with an ipd cam. That oughta tickle the 13s.

Injectors? Chips? Boost? That's an awfully fancy grocery getter you got there!

Sweet! So it runs low 14s with your current mods? Does better injectors mean brown tops?

It's run a best of 9.46 in the 1/8th and I have never had it down the 1/4. Now it has browntops, but I have flowed greentops if necessary.

Time to get rid of this. The new ride (severely less GRM than this) has taken its place. Let me know if you know of a good home for it.
