Re: Turbo on a 2.3L NF engine??

	I think its a great idea, and a much easier job than doing a
complete swap.  I see piece of junk imports all the time with sweet added
on turbos, but they have to do it because there is no factory option.
Fuel could always be added with additional injectors mounted in the
throttle body.  Boost would really have to be kept low with 10:1 though...
