1987 2.3 turbo computer
Hey, i am new here and so far i love this site! I am currently in the process of turboing my 1987 2.3 ranger with a 5 speed. It is the xlt model. If i am not mistaken, the crank and rods are forged but the pistons are not but the pistons from a 2.3 turbo SVO model car from the 80's have forged pistons that will just swap right in which is what i plan to do until i can afford some eagle interanls or weisco internals.
My biggest problem right now is that i am struggling with how i am going to tune it, what im going to tune it with, and what ECU i am going to need to use.
I was wondering if anyone has done a turbo in a truck as old as mine and how they did it.
Would the turbo ECU from a stock 2.3 turbo fox body mustang work to run the motor? Thank you in advance i know i will be asking lots of questions lol.
