    yeah guys.. i mentioned the rocker arm ratio thing liek 3 or 4 posts in on this, 4 YEAS ago! lol.

    we still dont know if it was a typo- prolly was.

    I guess its a good thing I didnt throw my crane cam in the trash.. with its .446" valve lift.

    it kills idle vacuum at the manifold until the engine warms up though.. then its passable.

    Well, do U want me to pull said rockers off said Red car in Siggy and compare them to said rockers outta my green car in siggy? Red car is a early 91 Automatic, Green car is a mid 95 5 speed with god only knows what year model head. Red car does feel like its got more oompha to it, so the head may be original...

    IDK, seriously, I wonder if the difference in the overall feel of the engins has anything to do with after 92, these Engines Have that cursed EGR Valve?

    That info was posted well before the 2.3L ecoboost was in production. So I assume the old 4 banger 80's Mustang SVO; it had a turbo and a 2.3L.

    Yeah I'm finding the valve springs he talks about in this thread but can't find retainers but may keep trying if any one knows more let me know I also found on crane cams but the retainers are listed as ford 2.0 sohc early years and vw liquid cooled are these the retainers ?? Lisa weird but that's how they are listed the springs are listed as 2.3 ford turbo dual valve springs so I know they are the ones
