2.0 duratec to 2.3 duratec

I was thinking about swaping my 2.0 for a 2.3. Anyone know what the differences on the engine for mounting and for wiring harness, or is it just better to upgrade my 2.0? I have a F2 header waiting be put in and I would like it to be non FI for now. I have heard about using the 2.3 out of the Rangers but do they have the same specs??

From my research, you would be better to upgrade the 2.0 either FI or Cosworth internals. Depends upon what your goal is.

So the 2.0 and 2.3 would be that close to the same as to say with FI?

What I am saying is that the .3 liters more of displacement is not going to be worth the cost of the swap. Either build your 2.0 naturally for a realistic possibility of 200 whp or go FI for instant 230+ whp (see Tom's dyno results). Money much better spent than on the swap in my opinion. Unless you just happen to have a 2.3 sitting around and can do the work yourself.
