sweet.. not sure how much power the 2.3 turbo will put out, but i'd "do up" a 3.0 or 4.0. mine has the 4.0 v6 and its not bad.

I dont know if a turbo truck is the greatest thing for a kid's DD....Im talking about reliability....A N/A 4.0 v6 would probably last longer...Then again, I dont know a lot about turbos other than when something breaks, it gets expensive fast.

You can do a 2.3t swap. Just keep it all stock and you'll like it. Lot of guys get motors out of the turbocoupes and put them in, might do a little modding and it's still realiable. check out turborangerforums.com for lots of info.
