well supposed to have the trans wens now. ups has some real issues all steming from young employees and lack of training tool that use pop up pictures lol   so swapped the head out last night. new bo port head has a different comb chamber shape. mine is a factoyr turbo chamber shape. it was also used on 1 n/a model. there are actually 4 diff chamber shapes for the 2.3 but only 1 for turbo. first pic is my turbo head. 2nd is bo port.   3rd pic os of the pistons. i think i had some oil entering the cyl. pretty sure bad valve guide seals. i say that as if i let it idle to long and then goose it .....it will blow a quick burst of smoke out the pipe.  not while driving just after idling a few mins.

Just curious,did you check combustion chamber CC difference between heads and did you calculate the final compression ratio of both?

Yep I'm betting you will see some good boost now and beyond that correct fueling. Your wet chambers might be from just the engine running pig fat as it was.

i did not check cc difference. i know the old head was 62cc's ( checked myself) and the new one is a heart shaped but has the bigger valves. where he clearance'd  for the larger valves, he removed quite a bit. i am coming into a time crunch so i guesstimated lol i know that's not the proper way to do it but i feel it will be comparable. i do know i have plenty of valve clearence. enemy spec'd the head before he used it. my last cam had .48 lift and this new cam has .510 lift.  stock valves , 1.74 intake 1.50 exhaust and this head has 1.89 on the intake and 1.60 on the exhaust.

i do not plan on towing it backwards. it was loaded that way because it was pulled in to the garage before i tore it apart. the trailer was covered in snow and ice so that was the easiest way to load it. the front wraps down and under the rail all the way back to the end of the skid plate. prob wraps under 18" and the sides go all the way down then tuck under a couple inches. i had him make seat covers as well just in case  ;).

even hauling it the wrong way it didn't balloon at 80 mph and it was windy here sat. now those were short bursts of 80 as the speed limit is a touch lower in that area  :m 7 year warranty as well.

so i always hope there are no leaks or complications upon re installing an engine but one always has to watch. i have fired my engine off 3 times and ran to operating temp. so far no oil leaks but i did develop a fuel leak. i have a sump welded to the bottome of my tank. the factory busa pump housing bolted into it while i had that engine and after going to the ford 2.3. i of course swapped out the pump from the ae 310lph to a walbro 450. that walbro 450 started to drop pressure at st a dunes ( on top of other issues) so it was pulled. i decided to go to an ae1000 pump for ease of service. i lost my fuel sending unit when i went to a flat plate vs the busa housing. well that gasket started leaking fuel for some reason. looks like the e85 ate a path through the gasket sealer ( permatex indian) .  i took it apart and re sealed it over the weekend and modified the plate to mount my fuel sender back in. i still have the programable fuel gauge on the console. now the gauge isnt needed at LS but would be nice to have.  i have hopes of returning to st a dunes where i really pre fer having the gauge as thats not a place i really want to run out of fuel lol.    at this point the only leak i have found is gasket that wasnt disturbed during the engine trans removal....go figure lol

Laws are there to be broken dammit!!
'Cept that Murphy one lol

I believe in civil disobedience at this point in my life so I was happy to do a couple 30psi pulls tonight with the new head in the ranger on the desolate concrete. Mr Murphy found me and said "Your header has cracked before, and it will again.. and again... and AGAIN!! HAHAHAHAHA!!!"
