Resurrection of a 2.3T:

Project "Belle"


Beginning Jan 10, 2004


This is my porject car and the things that I have done to it so far. The beginning date was on January 10 2004 for this project. I got my Taxes back and I bought one near complete engine and a rebuilt block from a friend. So the process begins to put a new fire under the hood of a 1993 LX.

  • Stage 1: Build up a 2.3T ranging from 240 to 300+ RWHP so that everything that I want on the engine is in place. 

  • Stage 2: When that is complete I plan to couple it with a World class T5 with stops, Pro 5.0 shifter, Aluminum Driveshaft from ford motor sports, a 7.5 rear carrier containing 3.73:1 gears and a Traction Lock Differential.

  • Stage 3: Change from 4 lug to 5 lug with 4 wheel disc brakes. I am going to be using a Cobra upgrade package from for the 1993 model year.

  • Stage 4: To modify the interior of the car to have a more personal feel to it. I am thinking of a total gutted custom appeal to whatever I feel like when the time comes.

If you have any questions on how a modification is made or you think I may have missed a step in my explanation, or think that you know of an application that I may benefit from in this project then feel free to e-mail me with all of the details.
