2.3T in a 4x4 application...thoughts?
Well my love for gen 3's has really gotten big since I got the 95. In a year I want to pick up another one just like it, but do a sas. Here's my thoughts and questions. I know a lot would say just go for a v8 and call it a day. Well I plan on doing that to the 95 so I want to do something different. My biggest concern would be reliability/safety for the motor. Is there any safe guards that can be taken to protect the turbo and any other vulnerable parts? I know wil a mild build i could have plenty of power and still get decent mpg's out of it which is why I am leaning towards it. However if it doesn't seem like a smart idea running that motor on a 4x4. I have another Idea I just dont know if it's doable or not. So for my second question.
If I go with a 95-97 obd2 truck is it possible to throw the 2.3 duratech into that year truck without any major modifications? I realize I would need the computer too. So any insight would be great, thanks.
