i have a 92 ranger 2.3 2wd 5 speed (project GREEN MILE aka the slut). after pondering for a few days and surfing the interwebs i have decided to boost the slut. nothing major just 5-7 psi. its a work beater nothing more. so with that being said i need help and info on what needs done and what is needed to put a turbo on it and what parts i have to change i.e. the computer fuel pump injectors all of that good stuff. i have found several threads on other sites about this with contradicting info. i need set in the right direction 
:frd

As cheap as it would be to do it one of two ways really with basic to good reliability features.. either source a SVO Mustang or even easier access, 88 Tbird Turbo Coupe 2.3 motor.

- 2.3T motor
- Tbird T5 trans
- Explorer 3.73'ed 8.8 rear end.

Motor drops right in. Uses all the stock ranger parts, starter, flywheel, trans etc. The 8.8 Explorer rear is a bolt in after swapping shock mounts. Even the drivetrain has a ton of potential at this point.

If you don't kill it a later swap of better forged rods and pistons that are compatible with any Lima 2.3 would do nicely and I am sure the mix of Mahale, SRP, or even J.E. Pistons would oblige it nicely if you just couldn't leave the fun factors alone. I think there is a 93-94 OBD I Rangers that had a dual plugged head with a different intake to make even better power use with flow. (The 95-97 were OBD2)

A 2.3T made 190hp in 1988 with about 15-17.5lbs of boost or so in manual trans and 93+ fuel. 9-11PSI would be more lower octane fuels and auto. 5 PSI probably wouldn't even get the butt-dyno excited. But add better forged internals, do the right things in tuning and suspension and pretty fun around 220-225hp and manageable to control.

can my trucks wiring be repinned to work with the thunderbird computer or can i just simply reuse my stock electronics and bolt the turbo to my stock 92 2.3

The main difference between the turbo and non-turbo engines were the pistons. The cast pistons in the NA motors really aren’t good for much more than that 5 or 6 pounds of boost you mentioned above. Most people don’t bother with that and end up at least swapping the pistons out for some forged ones, if not just dropping the whole turbo motor in as I suggested.

Rangers are fairly light, and that 6 pounds of boost may seem like enough to really wake the motor up, but it starts to seem kind of lame when you consider that the turbo motors were putting out 15 psi stock and the early models were capable of around 25 psi with not much more than a $25 eBay manual boost controller.

The 1984-86 turbo 2.3s came with a Garrett T3 which was capable of more boost than the later models which used an IHI turbo that was not quite as desirable. BUT, the later models did come with intercoolers which are a favorable item to have of course but not in its stock location (on top of the hot engine).. FMIC is far better choice and desired.

As for wiring and ECU, depending on what engine you ended up with. I would think leaving the stock truck wiring would be an asset and then repin/rewire specifics from there but ideally the original harness should suffice.

As far as the ECU, I think either a Haltech or there is/was a piggyback I think called somewhat appropriately as PIMP..

***PM us with an email I can forward there info to you, its not going to let me post the link here in any fashion I can fathom after 4 different ways of trying from the original attempt.***

We don't deal with them because of mostly what we do but reputable and wealth of informative.. You MAY find more information on there site to aid your project.

That is some of the best advice I have seen on adding forced induction to a NA Ranger on a budget. The other option is the 2.0L I-4 EcoBoost crate engine (252HP).

Found a better way around the info block..


Engine Management System:

Computer: All ’83-’89 motors are controlled by the EEC-IV engine management system. It is the same basic system that the ’85-’94 Rangers used. Here is where the swap can get interesting. Depending on your ultimate goal you can do any of the following: 
1. low boost (6-7psi) a stock Ranger MAF system can handle this without major problems. 
2. Moderate boost (7-12psi) you should either swap over to a turbo specific computer or have a custom chip burned for your stock computer. 
3. ‘Normal’ boost (15psi) the turbo computer is recommended. 
4. Wow level (18-25) and WTF level (25+) I’d strongly suggest either a piggyback system (EEC-tuner or EEC-tweaker, etc) or a complete stand alone system (Mega-squirt, etc). 
There are two major types of computers, the P series (PE, PK-1, PC-1,etc) and the L series (LA2, LA3, 8UA) PK’s and PC’s were intended for non-intercooled engines but respond well when one is added. The LA3 was the latest and greatest of these computers but is not as highly sought after as the PE computer from the ’85-1/2 SVO.


Sensors and wiring harness: Along with the computer you will need several turbo specific items 
1. The Vane Air Meter (VAM) it allows the computer to read the volume of air entering the engine. SVO’s and ’87-’88 T-birds used a large one, all others used a small one. 
2. Boost Control Solenoid (BCS) is handy to have but you can do without it. Having it attached is one less thing that the computer will complain about during a KOEO test. 
3. Barometric Pressure Sensor (BPS) this looks exactly like a MAP sensor but is calibrated differently. 
4. Intake Air Temperature (IAT) sensor (intercooled engines only) it’s in the intake manifold and tells the computer how much the air charge temp has been increased due to compressing it. 


All of the other sensors (TPS, EGR, KS, TFI module, etc.) are common to other 2.3’s. If you decide to use the turbo computer you can either, re-pin the trucks existing harness and add a few wires for the turbos unique sensors or pull the harness from the car you got the engine from. If you wish to retain your 8-plug head or simply want to do away with the distributor you can adapt the 8-plug DIS system’s module/trigger for use with the turbo computer. On a 4 plug head you will need to apply power to the secondary coil inhibit wire or either run the secondary coil’s wires to ground or add a resistor in place of the secondary coils themselves so, electrically speaking, the computer doesn’t even know that their gone. You will want to retain the 3-wire O2 sensor and if possible upgrade to the 4-wire sensor that came with ’91 and newer Rangers. Also the early computers were calibrated for 30pph ‘green top’ injectors while later ones used 35pph ‘brown top’ ones.



There, that should net you a great start at the local pick n' pulls.

Found this on eBay might be able to use this to piece together a kit. It says it works for the 2.3, idk if I would trust the turbo.

One should ask what do you think your getting in terms of quality for $389 for a complete turbo kit besides an open invite to turn your inline 4 Lima daily grinder into a street side IED? :verymad

And free shipping too ;)

I'd rather spend that kind of money sourcing JY parts and at least know what I am getting into even if I WASN'T ever going to buy an esteemed or established kit for $2-3K

23 years of Ebay and I still wouldn't trust it to get a PB&J sammich as described. I know that sentiment is quite opposite trend or feeling for many but.. its just my opinion.

The only thing that is wrong with this thread is that it is like 7 months old and you posted in it.

Otherwise all is well.

The truck for this project has been sold, nothing to see here.

The only thing that is wrong with this thread is that it is like 7 months old and you posted in it.

Otherwise all is well.

The truck for this project has been sold, nothing to see here.

 well now well now that I look at it on my phone it looks alright but when I pull it up on the computer everybody's post was like highlighted some teal green. I'll get a screenshot if it does it again

 well if he was well if he was getting 450 horsepower out of that and had a hard time keeping head gaskets in it that would tell me that the power is possible but you need to dial it back just a little bit to enjoy the reliability in it's tune

Actually the 450 hp was pretty mild compared to some of the 2.3T cars/trucks he was running around with. 600+ hp is possible with that 4 banger, pretty sure some sort of copper gasket had him fixed up. I bought some JBA 4.0 headers off of him that ended up in my BII for many years....
