    just wanna try it.

    there are 2 projects i want to do.

    one is to take a fox-body mustang and put a 1.3L in it. just want to try to prove how good(in my mind) 4 cylinders are.

    my second is just a tracker rebuild.

    I'm going to try to get all the parts from the junkyard only.

    my cash limit for either vehicle is $500. if anyone can give me advice for the fox-body, it would be much appreciated.

    Neil the guy I've been doing all the electrical on his dyno shop here in NW Arkansas, has a fox body mustang with a 2.0 turbo in it. This car pulls about 546hp at the rear wheel with a 2 valve head and factory head gaskets! So I can say that a 4 banger in a fox body will still carry the front end down the track

    IMO stick with a 2.3L mustang. I have been in some fast ones. All of my family are Ford nuts. I like everything, something's wrong with me though. Where are you located? 2.3 Turbo from a T-Bird with some mild mods will fly, I promise. They are available here is SC in various stages of disrepair cheap. Pick up a 4 cylinder fox body missing the drivetrain for a couple hundred and find a wrecked turbo coupe t-bird and you are in business. Nice SLEEPER.

    The 2.3 can be made VERY fast but not for $500!! Now Barts idea of the cheap Fox and a Turbo Coupe swap could be done for that or close to it.
