Talk Turbo if you dare,
What I may do is piece together my EFI Turbo since I have a fresh turbo 2.3 longblock already. I want a bigger turbo, larger injectors, header, bigger throttle body & modified intake anyhow so why bother starting with stock parts. Big VAM's & wiring harnesses are on Ebay as are the ECU's so why not buy it a piece at a time. I have all the time in the world to dig up the parts since I wont even get to this car for at least 2 years anyhow.......
Miswell Just upgrade to a megasquirt system and not mess with the stock efi stuff If your pieceing it together anyhow.
Bigtimmay.The megasquirt system seems to be pretty straight forward as far as installation, But writing all the programs it needs, is a Big challenge for me.
EFI was intimidating to me for the longest time but routine maintainance on my Neon & my dually has eased me into it. If I have an issue I Google it & work my way through it. I'm not ready to tune an engine with my laptop but I think I can get a 2.3 EFI swap done with my limited knowledge.
Bigtimmay,So your saying the PIMP that Stinger offers is pretty much a plug and play?Which one would you say is the best/easiest?
Its actually super simple specially with that harness you wanna use Its even easier then using a merkur harness like I did.By the way heres the actual company that makes that harness. http://www.thedetailzone.com/Ford%20Replacement%20Harnesses.htm
Bigtimmay, My 79 is already running.It has the 85 thunderbird Turbo in it with the T5. Wiring should be completes and ready for a PIMP, what do you think? Will I still need to do allot of tuning, if I put the PIMP in it.All I'm wanting to do is install a Boport header, Boport stage 1 and looking for the intakes and such from a 87-88 now.What else to make it a good runner?
