    Default New 92 Mustang - Engine Swap

    Hey all. I am buying a 92 convertible mustang with the 2.3L shortly and wanted to get thoughts on what I should do to it. I just want a summertime top down cruiser. Should I put in a turbo motor? 5.0 swap?

    Thanks for your thoughts.

    Someday I'm going with a 5.0 swap on my 85 2.3. Unless I find a 87-93 2.3 with a 5 sp stick and turbo the 2.3.

    Go for the swap... I've been waiting 25 years for my 1993 2.3L engine to go out. Finally did early this year and now in the process of dropping in a 351W. Just got block and heads back , so should be starting soon on it. Name:  93.jpg
