My head first into mustang world..Well 3 weeks ago i was browsing craigslist and found this 1990 mustang lx turbo listed not running 6k firm. So i went and looked at it and it appeared ok the man started it and it barely ran and was super rich. It had a new on3 turbo kit installed along with windsor iron heads, fcam, eled intake, and all autometer gauges this past winter. Also a moates tuner and a msd 2step 70mm tb, 70mm maf, 42# injectors, 255 fuel pump. So after walking around and looking i saw the value there and bought it. This is how it looked on the add picture
this is how the motor looked
so i towed it home and jacked it up to look around and the bottom crank pulley was hitting the cold side turbo pipe. so i took off the bumper
and as you can see in that pic there are no brackets lol the intercooler was held up with zip ties wtf well had to make some brackets and line things up
and here i had to cut a chunk out of the lower inner fender part the pipe was rubbing against metal
then the bumper would not go on with the intercooler in what i think is the correct spot so out with the jig saw and i cut out a big section out
then i had to finish mounting his fuel gague pain in the a$$ but now the hood dont hit it
then towed the car in for a 3" exhaust with dump off
and now i was thinking lets yank this moats tuner out.. so i did and it ran! but then i noticed a water leak.. long story short his electric water pump must of been used and fixed with jb weld so had to put a new one on.. while at it put a summit aluminum radiator on.
so now the car runs (idles) and it appears all leaks are fixed the day i bought the car 3 weeks ago i scheduled a tune session with lido @ alternative auto and its tommrow wich im glad it took a few because lots of little things poped up! What do you think my rwhp num will be? and would you have taken a 6k gamble on this?
and todays pic touch up paint on the front bumper
