Re: Pinto 2.3

I just found a complete 79 turbo 2.3 draw through engine, turbo, and transmission for $500. Supposedly it was running before being pulled. Is the draw through setup Worth it? I heard that they are not very reliable. I'd just swap the intake since the draw through engine is the same as the na.
