BIGHEAD So from what Ive read, i can use a complete 2.3 from a ranger. Drop it directly into my 2005 zx3 2.0. Use the intake and exhaust manifold off the 2.3. get a tune and be ready to go? Of course change the mount and things. Basically a plug and play swap.

felixthecat Plus I'd use a 23 psm vs shimming the 20 one,,,,

sailor No - look at the post just before yours for one major detail, plus the mount for sure you mentioned in the other thread.
