I love the 2.0l dont get me wrong, but if I invested in a rebuild... I would go 2.3L Unless he is wanting to keep it authentic to the Saleen
I didn't plan on rebuilding...yet the timing was unexpected so I had to replace the motor. I found one for 300. Still didn't plan on building cause I was broke. I still owed money on the car at that time so there was no extra funds. Then the tornado hit Alabama and ford offered a no payment for 3 months to the affected areas which I was apart of. (Thanks ford to stepping up) Now I had money to use and a local friend dying to open up his first duratec. If it was a planned build the d23 would be in my car right now, but I am very happy with the car and its potential. If anyone has a turbo d23.... come get you some!
