2.3 to 2.2 Turbo

I was wondering if this has ever ben done I have a turbo probe, and my friend has a 93 Tempo. i got hit in the probe pretty bad, and i dont think it will ever be driveable agian. so we were going to try to put in the 2.2 into the tempo for the ultimate sleeper. please give me some input.

Thanks.

Re: 2.3 to 2.2 Turbo

It can be done, but your talking fabbing up all the mounts and hardware. Not to mention swapping most if not all of the wiring harness and the computer.

It can be done if you have the patience and the skills. Good Luck

Re: 2.3 to 2.2 Turbo

my buddies and i once made a custom exhaust manifold for an 82 chevette. Got a turbo from some wrecked chrysler junk car and custom fitted a turbo on a spare exhaust manifold from the chevette. Started with 82 hp before the turbo, and got 125hp after... Pretty easy, just need to look at it and figure out how the turbo will sit in the engine bay... then find the best fit on the manifold to mount your braket from the stock turbo manifold... brase with caution... cast iron likes to exploide if not heated correctly.

Re: 2.3 to 2.2 Turbo

Why not just weld up a new header. I used to have a link for step by step instructions for doing just that. The factory exhaust manifold was really crappy in the Tempo/Topaz.

Re: 2.3 to 2.2 Turbo

The 2.2 is a Mazda mill, not a Ford.

So as stated above, it'll require custom fab.
