73 2.0 turbo

  Us old guys like to have fun to.
    I built a 2.0 engine and added the fuel injection and turbo from a 88 T-bird On the front of a C-4 built trans.
Not on the road yet, more wiring and parts sorting to do but have had it running. Not much room under hood. Retaining the AC unit, it gets hot in the central California in the summer. I drove the 73 pinto runabout over 200,000 miles while commuting to the bay area for 10+ years. Broke a few timing belts on the road, after about 30 minutes I was back on the road driving the Pinto , no bent valves. Love this car! Will try to post some pictures when I get a chance.
Frank :)

Welcome Frank. Did you fabricate your intake, or modify the 2.0 intake?
