Turbo V10 Swap

Just finished so i figured i would share

Main reason for doing this swap is not to get extra HP but to have something different and fun to drive.

6.8L Triton V10
68mm Turbo
T-45 Trans (im sure it wont last but works for now)
Complete 5 lug swap
Rear disk brakes

I had to make custom motor mounts, upper intake, wire harness, and a lot of other minor things.









Note: I just got the car running I do plan on cleaning up the engine bay.







92 gt
Old setup: 100% stock w/ turbo 10.80 @ 126
