What 2.3 block? Is the block from the 81 Mustang? If you want a sleeper, drop in a 5.0. H.O. and slam a supercharger on it. You'll get about 300hp out of it with other slight mods after, maybe a bit more.

Motor be worth about $400, supercharger about $1500, other minor parts such as cold air intake about $200, you'd have a low to mid 13 (best guess) second car for about 2 grand.
