so i found a turbo kit for a mustang for 500. its for a gt but i already have gt exhaust on mine so the only thing ill have to do is just use my manifolds.. so my question is, how much can my 3.8 take? im only lookin to push like 5-8lbs of boost. thanks

The gt exhaust wouldn't be a big factor in the turbo kit install. Because of the differences in the engine configuration and placement, I would think that the turbo kit as a whole will have a lot of fitment issues. The main components such as the the turbo, intercooler, and some of the piping may work. As you stated, the manifolds won't be any good, hotside piping won't fit correctly. Like I said, it could be made to work but will most likely need a lot of fabrication.
