Yes, 2.3l Lima engine was called the Pinto engine, it was built in Ford's Lima, Ohio engine plant, which is where Lima name comes from.
Came in 2.0l, 2.3l and 2.5l
1985 was the first year the Rangers got fuel injected 2.3l previous 2 years were carbed, in 1989 they went distributorless, crank position sensor and Ignition control module(ICM) was added, along with dual spark plug heads.
In 1995 all Rangers got the new EEC-V 104 pin computer, including 2.3l, so lost the ICM, it was inside computer now, on all engine models.
1998 to 2001 Ranger lost the 2.3l and got the longer stroke 2.5l instead.
1985 to 1994 2.3l Rangers would have the A4LD automatic, this was a 4 speed with overdrive and computer control, in the earlier years just the overdrive was computer controlled, around 1990 Torque converter lockup was added to computer control.
In 1995 2.3l Rangers got the 4R44E automatic, still 4 speed overdrive but had more shift control for computer, that trans was used until 2001
Since all the stock turbo 2.3ls were pre-1995 they will all use the EEC-IV computer and wiring, so you may be better off getting a 1989-1994 2.3l Ranger if turbo is on your mind.
Computer could be a stumbling block since many turbos did come with manuals and computer needs to run transmission, A4LD would be easier to deal with than 5R44E in this respect, so 1994 and earlier again.
The Lima/Pinto engines have a unique bellhousing/block bolt pattern, so without major changes you are pretty much stuck with using a trans from a Lima engine.
