yes, all Ford 2.3OHC engines are the same bell patern as far as I know. You might need to move some pips but it should bolt up.

Ok finally something I can answer. Yes all of the old iron sohc 2.0/2.3/2.5 engines use the same bellhousing bolt pattern. The older 2.0 sohc use the same bolt pattern also but use a different size locating dowel (they make a steped dowel so you can switch them around though. The later aluminum 2.0 and 2.3 dohc engine use a different belhousing. If you need any info on building up your 2.3t let me know I have built many. My last 2.3t was in an 83 turbocoupe and had stock 100,000 bottom end and few aftermarket parts and in a 3470lb car ran 13.2 at 103mph on street tires and a slipping clutch also had stock t-3 turbo. Check out turboford.org. I am sctur601 overthere.

I got the adapter, it looks good. it is a Pinto Beans adapter. it has a 6 puck and hd pressure plate. I cant find a poundage on the kep pressure plate though??

it was only $150 for it all, but the $206 speeding ticket bumped the price up. oh well looks like I gotta sell some turbos to make up the difference.

the guy works at a machine shop and has a iron head(no cracks) and a mallory dizzy with coil. $100 for the extra parts. if anyone wants them pm me or comment here.

use a 2200lb presure plate at the most and get a normal VW spring type disc.

well I won another adapter on evil bay. I got this one for $75 shipped to my door. It is for a pinto engine it looks like also. The guy did not know what type of engine it fit. SCORE

I will post pics of both setups when I get the second.

here are the two adapters side by side. it is definatly a pinto adapter. it is a homemade unit that has been turned down on a lathe. this is one heavy mofo. it was $75 to my door. I gotta see if kennedy sells the bolts for the adaper unless you guys know a place to get the long starter bolt. now I gotta start looking for engines. I wanna run EFI later style engines if po$$ible. let me know what ya think.

hey cactusdog I do have you beat. I have a turbochraged nissan 300zx engine in the back of mine. should be good into the 500hp range on stock internals. don't knock the ford lump either, Crash will be putting down 350hp on his setup. for the price of a suby I could have bought 4-5 of my engines. plus when you say you have a turbo v6 most people don't want to race anymore. even STI subies Wink

true to a point on the 300zx engine,but how good does that thing fit. 2.5 sbies are putting out beyond 600hp reliably,and it's a boxer that fits right in. My 2.0 was $800.00 w/turbo,and header,another $800 for a programable ecu, and I have about 350hp at about 150lb less. A bug out at the duns had a northstar, what a pice, so much wieght behind the back wheels,he couldn't turn without the brakes. Some times a little less is more.

my motor actually paid for its self when I parted the z car out. I bought the car for $200 and parted it out for aroud $250 and got $75 for the scrap weight. totally stock ecu is good til about 400hp and 500 can be had for about $500. you cant be pushing no 350hp from the ej20 unless you went with a bigger turbo and other goodies(like a sti turbo upgrades $500 or nox.). the ej25t is a $3000+ engine though and that more than what I have in the entire car.

the nissan lump has no low oil pan issues that the ej suby engine have either. the pan is actually as high as the tranny so the skid plate runs to the rear just like it would with a bug engine. I have NO weight issues at all, I actually drive it pretty fast on the highway and on the loggin roads doing 50+mph and it seems great, plus the shear torque of a v6 makes a huge difference hill climbing.

don't get me wrong the suby is a nice piece and I will probably be doind a couple of them cause I have some bus buddies that want that engine in the back of thier campers but I am gonna wait to see how they do for the extra weight of a bus.

that super sitting next to the baja has my old baja setup. 12a rotary engine I had turboed before but just got tired of the cold start issues so now she is NA again. I thought a super with a 8000rpm redline would be fun on the streets and road coarse at PIR.

cactusdog send me your pics and I will start a new post and post em for ya. I wanna see your setup. good luck with it and if you find and adapters for the scooby lumps let me know. also welcome to the site.
