Re: 2.3 tempo?

Nope, the 2.3 in the Tempo/Topaz is a OHV engine very similar to ford I6 engines. Infact some say it is basically a 200 I6 with 2 cylinders cut off.

The 2.3 that was in the mustang, ranger, thunder bird, ect...was a OHC engine. It was losely based on the 2.0L OHC engines found in the pinto.

There was a guy that put a 2.3 OHC engine into a tempo, according to him the engine mounted up to the stock manual transmission. Ofcourse his car was built to be a race car and I believe with the turbo 2.3 OHC engine he is hitting the high 11's or low 12's.
