4bt, no acceleration, limited powerband

turbo 2.3, lots of power after spool, unlimited possibilities.

The 2.3t will make more power and be easier to put into your current ranger than dealing with swapping in a v8.

This is one reason why my next vehicle will be a 2.3 lol.

And when you guys put the "t" behind the 2.3, you mean "turbo" right?
