The kits on ebay for the 2.3L come with a nice blueprinted and rebuilt turbo .68 A/R 3" in/out, etc... for like 600 bucks with a wastegate.

That is not alot of boost for a 'turbo'. What it could possibly be is alot of boost for a given engine setup. Not all turbo's make the same amount of boost, different turbo's are designed for different applications, for different pressure levels etc etc.

Let me tell you this. All your info is wrong. Tell ME there is no way I'm running 20 to 20+ PSI on my 2.3T. The probe also does NOT have the strongest crank made for a factory engine. I can't tell if it's a lack of knowledge or just ignorance in your post but the fact you didn't even specify for a 'ford motor' makes me laugh. Even if you had meant 'strongest crank made for a factory ford motor' you'd still be way out in left field with your thoughts. The factory 2.3 N/A cranks and 2.3T cranks are the same. The dirt track guys have ran then up ungodly rpms (for the Ford 2.3 anyways) and puked out 700RWHP using them. I'm not saying the 2.3 crank is the strongest Ford crank now, but it sure as hell isn't what you think it is(n't). Even if he stuck with the 2.5 crank and went with aftermarket rods/pistons he still has absolutely nothing to worry about unless he runs into user error and screws up the rebuild himself.

Car vs Truck, not the same. Electronics and technology make a huge difference as well. 6 turbo'd cars under your belt or not you have lack of knowledge here (dealing with a 2.3/2.5T anyhow). What about the boost level do you doubt exactly? I'll reiterate; I run 20 PSI, on 93 octane to boot, with 'stock' turbocoupe electronics. Care to doubt that?

Those kits are utter trash. The turbo's are cheap chinese trash and have a tendency to fall apart, the rest of the kit is OK though.

Either way your info was wrong. You didn't mention anything about internals in your first post either. Well, until you mentioned 4.0 and 5PSI being safe for internals. Of which, he is not turboing a 4.0, so again your info was wrong.

He's not the first to do a turbo swap in a 4 cylinder ranger. Browse around on RPS

I ask the same question: what about that boost level do you doubt? PSI isn't a mythical creature and once you hit a certain level you can't get more. Like said, different turbo's for different applications for different pressure levels etc etc etc. Oh, and higher compression pistons is a no no for boosted engines unless full out race built. The direct injected 2.3T Duratechs run higher CR, but that is a benifit of their direct injection design, even then with the higher CR they are limited to max potential safe boost levels.

Which are complete garbage, are not sized properly for a 2.3/2.5T, and in general are not worth it. You seriously get what you pay for with Turbo's! Refer to what I've already said.

well thanks for correcting everyone [email protected]@hole some people were giving and opinion and other people including myself said what they had found out. i researched when my cousin and i were going to do a turbo probe and try and keep stock internals so i guess u could go over to probe talk and tell all of them how they are all wrong and stupid because thats where i got most of my info from i hope u like making people feel like crap. way to be super cocky.

Again, you still don't see the error of your ways. The Probe crank isn't the strongest. And I made it clear that my info was based solely on the 2.3/2.5T. You however talked about everything and nothing at the same time.

Don't think I once said anything about probetalk being founded by stupid people, or that the probe internals were not capable.

You on the otherhand used info found for Probes to give advice about a totally different engine.


I was not cocky, but you are like anyone else who is proven wrong then has to get all defensive over it.

Bruiser, for your oil lines you'll need two extra. A supply line, and a return line.

The supply line is easy, and for a cheap starter setup, you can use a brake line, T off of the oil pressure sender on the back driverside of the head, and run it to the turbo. Later on when you got everything setup and running perfect you can upgrade to a braided steel hose.

For the return line you can do a couple things. Either drill and tap the block in the same area the turbo block would have the return line. Or put a bung in the oil pan and drain to there. Either way you need to keep in mind you MUST keep the return above the oil level of the pan in order to accommodate appropriate drainage and avoid oil backing up in the turbo.

I drilled and tapped the block, seemed the better route to me.


As for vacuum lines. Get creative. It's actually simple though it may seem like a spaghetti bowl of lines to figure out. Simplest thing might be for you to get a vacuum tree from a junkyard or see if your local auto store sells generic ones, then hook all your lines up to it.

yeah im gonna go ahead and call BS on that

and i also know what im talking about since i got rid of a turbo cavi to get my truck

if you have a LD9 running 11.30, its NO WHERE near streetable and would NEVER hook with street tires. Now as for the Ecotec motor MAYBE and even thats a far stretch but still would never hook

dude, for "knowing" what your doing you certainly dont know how to talk to people very well. Why dont you offer some actual good quality info or tips instead of calling all of his work/ideas crap.

but i can understand that you might be mad at the world, after all you do drive a cavalier.

they are decent, for your first car or a beater

but to brag that a cavalier runs 11.30, i dont know it i would feel sorry because its a cavalier or if i would feel sorry for his parents having to find out from a car that he's gay
