i have a 2.8L sitting in my yard. was claimed to be rebuilt.

all i can guarantee is it runs.

so, is there anything on that 2.8 that could be rigged to make my little 2.5 A code a tad hotter?

i also have the ECU from the TBI 2.8. but i think it is the same as the 2.5's...

right?

I know with the code E's you can swap the TBI's but I'm not sure if the Code A will accept it. Gonna need someone else to verify it.

well a 2.5 is single pod and 2.8 is dual pod

so not physically gonna fit, you would need custom intake manifold to fit a bigger different tb unit on it

your best best on the 2.5 is headers, head and intake porting

and mill the head surface down

RV/truck camshaft

computer modifications to adjust timing and fuel

modify fuel pressure regulator

make a ram air for it

deeper axle ratio



etc

ive considered all of these things, i think i might be able to make that throttle body fit. as for any computer mods, how do i do that? do i have to get a standalone or can i program my current ECU?
