Won't work. Its for the older 2.3 lima engines. And don't waste your time with low boost on stock internals...complete waste

on www.turborangerforums.com there is someone who done a remote mount holset hx35w turbo on the 2.3 duratec... IIRC he was running around 10 psi on stock internals with a good tune...

A "good tune" is an understatement. One minute you'll be having a great fun time doing short pulls in boost...the next you'll be waiting for a tow back home and paying an EPA fine from the 3/4 mile long oil spill.... Buy a used junk yard engine and build it as time/money permits.
