Re: turbo 200 build

What injectors are being run?

Many of those older style have issues with heat. There is also the possibility of injector driver overheat, depending on what injector ohm range, how they're wired and how they're driven.

Look for a starter for a 96 F150 with a 4.9L 6cly as an example. Manual starter if yours is manual, automatic if yours is automatic.

You WILL need to change the wiring slightly from stock, but it isn't that hard to do and the stock fender solenoid and stock starter cable can be reused.
