interesting, what kind of cars can i find one of these engines in? i've heard of a lot of people putting 2.3's in their beetles. i assume it's still street legal but thought i should ask.

Most any ford that has a 4 banger from 1974-1998 give or take that is rear whell drive will have this engine evan some Mazda Trucks nd the Merkur. it's the Ford 2.3 OHC. Dime a dozen and every place. You have all sorts of parts to pick too like dual plug, fuel injection, Trubo etc.

Trubos can be found in the Merkur XR4Ti, Turbo Mustangs and the Turbo T-birds

that sounds very nice. is there much fabricating to be done for one of these conversions? would it hook up to a beetle tranny? if so i'd imagine i'd neet a kit to connect the tranny to 2.3, if so do you have a ballpark price?

also, todd you'd probally have more luck in the forum that's specifically for buying and selling under the forum index

toyota 22r is a very good engine to put in a baja or rail, low cost and good power with lots of parts. so you dont have to be stuck with a ford.... Evil or Very Mad

It doesnt have to be VW, never done any research into any alternatives and didnt know you could nab one that cheap. But you have now sparked an interest into checking it out. Razz and that rig of yours is lookin bad ass Tako. Twisted Evil
