Hey Frank. I have a 90 2.3 mustang right now. Auto trans went out. Are ranger 2.3 a stronger engine. Thinking the internals might be stronger by it being a truck. Also the 3.0 in a ranger they were the same engine in the tempo right? Or similar I am thinking. Hope all is well. Thanks!

NO SAME THING SAME ENGINE
Thinking the internals might be stronger by it being a truck. NOPE SAME THING.

YES BUT THE HEAD GASKETS ARE NOT THE SAME SINCE IT IS RWD AND FRONT COVER IS NOT THE SAME. Or similar I am thinking. Hope all is well. Thanks!
YES ALL IS GOOD.

1988 Ford Escort GT
"Vader" - not because I'm strictly a huge SW fan, but because when I'm done with it, it'll be a BA, black gloss machine.
5 Speed
1.9 L
Currently white, but not for long.
Runs like crap.
Has a broken drivers side window (thanks spawn).
Has interior that just doesn't know its already fated for the dumpster.
I can't wait to change out tons of old mess for new hotness. Or at least rebuilt and cleaned old hotness, with upgrades.
But hey, I'm in love.
