i'm looking for good tech articles, so anything 2.3 specific, detailed, and preferably with your own original pictures would be awesome. if you have an outstanding writeup, you can get a contributor tag under your name. regardless of that, everyone will be credited for their work. hopefully we can get a good FAQ going for both modifications and common troubles/fixes. pm me with anything you'd like to send in, be it questions or writeups. thanks guys

Here are some articles that I frequent pretty often. They have helped me out immensly in understanding the Volvo Head swap, as well as how the EEC-IV computer works and how to tune it. Hope these help!

The blocks in the n/a and turbo 2.3's are identical but there are several variations of cylinder heads and camshafts. Turbo engines have a built bottom end but the n/a don't that I recall. 2.3's also have 2 dipstick holes. One of them in in the front right between the filter and oil seperator used on pinto's. The other is in the rear right on other models. Any crankcase psi will blow oil out the hole onto the distributor.
