well the 3.0 is 156hp and around 185ish torque with the 3.73 gears. ive got a intake and lightning flowmaster exhaust with 4.10 gears and no tune yet and i keep up with my frends 4.0 so i imagine the 2.3 may do the same with that much less weight.

yup yup... not to mention the 2.3 has aluminum heads and block! The 3.0 is solid cast iron heads and block with a very high compression ratio made for producing amply amounts of torque for the liter size.

I gained 43 hp when I moved up from my 94 to my 05, and it felt like I'd moved up to a Mustang GT as far as performance.... haha... I know thats not much gain but my old 2.3 had seen better days when I got her.... (and both the 94 and this 05 are manual trannies)...

Yeah, I believe they were made between 1998-2002. They were ridiculously expensive to produce. The earlier EV models used a less durable battery than the later models and it shows in their residual values. If you find the earlier models on ebay you can score one for less than $3-4K. The later models get a longer charge due to the higher efficiency batteries and you would be lucky to pay less than $15K for one...

does the 2.5 really have less power than the 2.3
I'm not really sure on this. I believe they are mostly the same motor. I've had a 2.5L 1999 Ranger before and it was prettly lacking in the power department. I will say though that gas mileage was wonderful!

Also, I believe there is more of an aftermarket for the 2.3L.

When my '99 was wrecked, I parted out everything on eBay. The guy that bought the motor told me he was going to slap on a turbo and put it in a Miata!
