probe engine options??

well kinda looking to buy a probe "GT?" what exactly besides the engine is different?
what can i "cram" in this for an engine? how about a 3.0liter dohc yamaha from a taurus SHO? or should i just pressurize it or just run it at~10% nitromethhane or nitropropane
will i need to swap the sho tranny too? will it even fit in the compartment

fast is good deadly fast is better

trying to ignore its a mazda was it built/assembled on US soil anyway?

gonna look for one CHEAP that needs a rebuild otherwise fine and build something to get into trouble with and have some fun in the process

well just trying to explore the chance

Re: probe engine options??

What's the year and models your looking at. Only the 2 generation Probe was made in the US, the 1st gen was made in Japan. I don't belive the SHO motor and tranny will fit in the probe. It would be cool if it could. Engines that came in the 1st gen Probe "88-92" was the 2.2L "I-4" GL model, LX had the 3.0L Vulcan V-6, the GT had a 2.2L turbo. 2 gen "93-97" had a 2.0L "I-4" in the base and SE model, GT had a 2.5L V-6. The only engine option that I know of "this is for the 2gen GT". Is the 2.5L KL-ZE from Japan, If memory serves me right it has 197hp.You can order one from an engine import dealer. You can have a turbo put on but it has to have a low psi number or the engine will blow. NO2 is a good choice to go with, but that depends on the mileage of the motor.

My first car was a 67 Mustang Coupe, 2nd one was a 67 Cougar XR-7, 3rd one was a 66 Mustang Coupe. Why did I get rid of these cars for ? I know why, because I'm stupid, stupid, stupid.

My next Ford.....

Re: probe engine options??

Believe me if you turbo the V6 run LOW boost [8 Lp MAX] as the rods are as weak as p!ss...I'll have some pics soon of a blown low-ish comp KL-ze engine 200 kw @ wheels 15 Lp boost..Too much boost...You just can't tell some people !!!!!
