Got her all cleaned up, and finally dropping off at the shop Wednesday night to get scott rod panels welded in, and a good amount of paint work done. Changing it up on the hood, getting mirrors painted black, and getting a few other things touched up. Once I get it back from body shop motor is ready to go in! She cleans up well for 20 years old! Disregard the sweet wheels, didn't want to leave my bigs/littles on while it was at the shop lol

Changed the drop off to Sunday but I'll be sure to post up once I get her back and how it all turned out. Once I get it back, motor's going in and next thing I need to start to figure out is radiator/shroud/expansion tank setup. Going to need to see how much room I have with turbo mounted. Got a question....found a radiator for my year that is sold with the end tank built in, similar to the 5.0 setups. If I went with a radiator with the end tank/filler neck built in, could I just completely ditch the expansion tank and just run this as the overflow?

So not to go off topic...but what are your guys thoughts? On my last build I had a COP conversion done with the red monster harness and brand new Ford COP's. I did have a KB BAS added to it, but didn't have any spark issues up to 600rwhp and about 6400 RPM's. On my new build, I'm probably going to be spinning upwards of 7,000 and shooting for 800rwhp at about 25psi...and I'm being told no way to go back to Ford OEM coil packs and spark plugs. What are your guys thoughts about that? I don't think I'm ready to do a complete stand alone yet, so this is something I'll have to address. If Ford OEM packs & wires are the way to go for that high of boost and power, are there any options to relocate them? I really don't have the room up front now with all this turbo stuff going on. Any input would be appreciated.

With my stock setup the factory coils were fine past 700hp and I can't see that they would have been a problem above that. I've even read to keep it all stock. I say leave it alone. If our combos are as close as they appear you won't be spinning 7k. On my car we made all those dyno pulls shutting it down at 6200.

My car is a 97 and I did a COP conversion, so I'm still waste spark. That's the problem I read about...

What was holding back pulling higher than 6200? Hell I was running super small blower cams in my last build and pulled it to 6400

Gotcha..

There's nothing holding mine back except I didn't see the need to rev it higher than 6200. If you're "only" wanting 800, and our combos perform similarly, then you won't need the extra RPM unless you prefer to run less boost and spin it higher.

I think you saw my numbers but they went like this so I think you may have similar numbers.

At 24psi it made 840hp (6200 rpm max)
At 27psi it made 870+hp (6200 rpm max)
At 32psi it made 902hp (6200 rpm max)

To be honest that seems pretty close spot on to what I was expecting...I was planning on it taking about 25psi to hit my goal of 800, which maybe it will take a little less which would be nice. I'm just really going to have to see what my options are with this ignition setup, but it's not looking good the more people I talk to.
