i am not sure if it is a 2.3 or not. but if it is i had very good luck with mine and i drove it hard..Best motor ford made in my book well beside the old inline 300:)

have 90 2.3 in 88 ranger put 38 lbs boost in it home built turbo kit
donuts on rev limiter till tires blew
beat it like red headed step child for 2 years
reliable yes
high mileage yup378000 ks before turbo
powerful not without turbo
probably perfect 4 what you want
