I purchased a blue opel and the motor did seize right after purchase. I was planning to do a swap, but in a couple years. Life changed my plans, so I'm going for it.
"This 2.3 ecoboost is a stroker version of the 2.0 ecotec block in the newer opel Gt in Europe or saturn sky redline in the U.S.A." In a way this is a Opel GT motor... kind of haha
No better time then the present with Covid!
I purchased a 2019 6 speed mustang from Co-part, and pulled the drivetrain from the opel.
This theoretically will be amazing @ 2000 lbs in my mind. Direct injection and low weight should deliver 40 mpg and 350 ft/tq 350hp. Wide body will be fun to build as well with fiberglass.
16k in, wish me luck!
I'll tell you when i hit $25k.
