I was actually going to talk to you about what you think I should do, I have a complete 2.3 that needs to be rebuilt and thats what I really want to pump the power out of. The 2.0 I really don't want to put much money into and i'm still tuning with you and still haven't gotten to really enjoy everything I just put on it alot yet so i'm gonna stick with what I have for a little while, if anything I might put a SMALL turbo on it but thats really probably not going to happen before I just build up the 2.3.

What is the difference between the 2.3 block and 2.5 block? Is the bore bigger or did they just increase displacement with the stroke like they did with the 2.0-2.3? And what do you think is the most HP that can be pumped out reliably on the 2.3? or really with any particular duratec setup. I definetly wanted to talk with you about it before I started spending money to see what my best options would be for the build.

Its going to be a few months before that build gets going because i'm building up a KA24DE-T for my 240sx right now to get it running so I'll have other transportation while I do a heart transplant on the focus, but I want to get all the thinking and questions out of the way long before I get into it so I know EXACTLY what I want to do.
