Congratulations on purchasing your 2.3 Turbo! You made a wise choice!
Your next wise choice will be to get rid of those Pep Boys wires and get a
4-cylinder set from Motorcraft. Double-check the firing order and spark
plug wires on the distributor.
Ford will also have your belt, and your tensioner pulley.
By the way, I buy Ford or Motorcraft parts whenever I can, except for Spark
Plugs I buy NGK TR-5s. My opinion is don't buy platinums.
