Boost Brother Turbo Kit on a 1989 Mustang GT (First Drive Video Inside)

Ok so I know some of you hate on the cheaper turbo kits but realistically for the money its the best bang for the buck.

86 Flat top piston short block
cleaned up e7 heads
stock cam
stock intake
stock TB
MSD 6AL
Pro M MAF (3" blow through)
42lb Injectors
255 High Flow Fuel Pump
Boost Brothers SN95 Turbo Kit (T67)
T5 Trans w/ 2.73s
5psi of boost right now

Getting it tuned shortly just have to finish the exhaust (open dp right now) and find an air filter that fits.

!!!WATCH IN HD!!!

First Drive

Engine Startup

Questions just ask, look forward to comments as well.


1999 Mustang "V6" - Microsquirt Powered LS 5.3, 76mm On3 Turbo (Soon to Be Replaced), Turbo 400 w/ RMVB, Strange 31 Spline S/S Axles with Auburn Diff, 275/60/15 on 15x10" with Skinnies up Front

Thanks man, the turbo is about all you hear inside the car, I will be running full exhaust I was just so ready to drive it.

Are you on a stock block? 14 seems high and I want to keep everything safe so thats why I figured 8-10, I do see you have meth though.

timing is locked out at 14 (no spout)

Getting a SCT chip in a week and Im not driving it much for now as its getting too much fuel and sputters out/dies when warm.

Also no i dont hear anything but my blow off...no whitsle from the turbo but i do have an airfilter on it and i run bassani race mufflers car is pretty loud...lol

Yeah I believe they did, the guy I bought it from bought the rest of their inventory is my understanding. (but I cant say for sure). Either way he was more then helpful during the whole process.

All the foxes I have seen this on are non-a/c cars. So it is really hard to say. I am putting this on my Fox but do not have a/c as well. Keep in ming you have to eliminate your sway bar when using this kit anyways. So if thats a dealbreaker, the a/c is a moot point.

I will be using ac with it... I mocked it up and the biggest problem was the down pipe hit the accumulator. I was able to take one bolt out of the bracket that holds the accumulator and angle it to miss the down pipe.
