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!

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.
