2.3 vs 2.5


New Member
So I have a fair understanding of the Lima 2.3's and the differences between the years and such. Distributor vs 8 plug, oval port vs "D" port, small crank journal vs large ect.
Has anyone here had experience building them in turbo or non turbo fashion?

Main reason I bring this up, I want to swap a 2.5 Ranger in my '93 but retain the stock intake and fuel system. Is the long block a direct swap or is it easier grabbing the crankshaft and keep the stock block?
