confused 2.3 rebuild

i have a 93 tempo 5 speed. i pulled a 2.3 motor out of a 93 tempo from a junk yard and ive broken it down. i am looking for a parts list for a performance rebuild. i no they are scarce but i also know that its been done with lots of hp as the result. some one told me that the crankshaft out of a chevy 2.5 would work in the engine. so i went to the junk yard and pull it. i took the 2.3 crank with me as a test. and it was way different so now im out of ideas. i could use a 2.5 crank out of a ford but their hard to find so i dunno? wish the ohc crank worked.

the car will see the track alittle but i want the car mostly for street racing.

Re: 2.3 rebuild

the crank they are telling you will work is out of the 2.5L HSC engine from the '86-'89 4 cylinder taurus.
