If Scions were around in 1993, they would probably have less than 98 hp. Technology has changed a little over the last 13 years.

My truck's engine is from the same family of engines as yours...it just has a slightly larger displacement. It produced 119 hp stock. That's not terrible for a SOHC 4-cyl first introduced over 30 years ago.

If it makes you feel better, my parents had a 1986 Ranger Super Cab with a whopping 90 hp. It never went anywhere fast. Chances are it never went over 70 MPH while my parents had it though.

well I've had mine up at 85 MPH sounded fine...so I could turbo it and get 4.10 gears would it be about like a 4.0 supercharged?

It might be like an NA SOHC 4.0L. IIRC, factory turbo-charged Lima engines made anywhere from 190 - 210 hp depending on the car they were installed in.

Keep in mind that the turbo 2.3s had slightly different internals so they could hold up to the boost. It might be best to just buy an entire Super Coupe parts car or something...or at least the entire engine...if you want to go that route. You can put a turbo on your current engine, but one built from the factory to handle the turbo will likely last longer.

id just keep it where its at, I doubt you will notice that much of a gain for as much as you will pay for the gears and to pay to install them or the time it takes to install them for such a minor gain the price ration just doesnt seem right unless your bed is full of money...
