Update on my Turbo Mustang Pic Heavy

Made a few changes on my coupe over the past months. Changed to a bigger fuel pump, FTI built powerglide/converter combo, bigger intercooler, flipped my upper intake, aluminum radiator, contour fans, SS braided radiator lines, complete upr solid rear suspension, and moved my gauges out of the A pillar for the 10pt cage that is really needed now after our track outing this past Friday I'll post some vids of that on another thread. Anyway here are some pics. Big thank you to Willy @ Lujan Motorsports for a awesome job on my car once again.














And the finished product...... for now at least


The big 4" thick intercooler tucked nicely inside the bumper...

thanks guys!! I'm super happy with the car, the temps stay in the 170s in traffic, the only one that has me a little worried are the trans temps as they were in the 200s but i added the cooler from the radiator with an external cooler I had. I will do some driving today and see how it goes.

Looks great. What fuel and injectors are you running? Anymore motor details?

Nice to see another AEM ECM/EPM coil on plug guy out there. (see my sig)

Seeing how clean that came together almost makes me want to ditch my A/C and powersteering on mine.

Dart 348ci, Ed Curtis cam/valvetrain, Precision 76mm, Holley Dominator EFI, CNP ignition, tons of Holler EFI small parts, 4"dp, 4R70W w/T-brake, new suspension coming soon.

Little 750rwhp at 6,000rpms and only 10lbs of boost before we just got tired of playing with clutches. New 4R70W and we are turning it up. Expecting 1,000rwhp.

I'm running E85 and bosch 160's. Motor is a Boss block 306 with forged internals, TFS FAC 190s out of the box, hard to believe yes but the cam is a F303 with 1.7RR, and a out of the box TFS Box R. Hot side is a B&G with a custom made 4in downpipe split to dual 3in Magnaflow ovals. AEM series 1 with EPM and GM Truck coils. I was a little weary at the beginning since I saw ppl with some problems on the AEM EPM combo but as long as you wire it up correctly, there hasn't been any problems. And it drives very smooth while cruising.

I ditched the a/c to clean up the engine bay and since I barely used it when I drove the car stock. But it sucks in the summer stuck in traffic with the sun beaming on you...lol

Yup that's the pump, I used my stock 93 timing cover.

I think I have some more, I'll post them up. I bought a nicer looking throttle cable bracket from MC Machine, I had to elongate the TPS and IAC cables so they can reach the other side. I also cleaned up my vacuum tree and vacuum lines going to the intake and regulator. We got all the wiring from the driver's side and hid them in the fender along with the coolant overflow tank and starter solenoid. The intake pipe exits into the fender through the hole where the washer fluid reservoir used to be. I had to move the horns to the front bumper area because the pipe was running right where it was mounted from the factory. I wanted to keep the ic piping away from the 4in downpipe and the alternator away from the heat of the turbo.

I actually like it, it tames the car down a little. The converter is abt a 3600 stall, at 70 on the hwy it turns ant 27-2800 rpms with the 3.08s. Glides can be tricky, you have to have the correct converter for the job. I had a tci before this one, i kept making more power but the car would not better on e.t untill i spent money on a custom unit. I used to have 18% slip at the track to abt 4-5% now. Big difference. I also liked that im able to leave on more boost. My best 60 was with this glide, 1.35.
I drive it alot on the street and the hwy. On my days off from work, I drive 50 miles roundtrip to my buddies shop where we did all the work on the car.
On Sept 8th, I'm taking it to a car show/ cruise into the keys which abt a 80mile trip one way.

Do you have any oil still come out of the breathers at full throttle now that you have the breather tank? Was going to remove my two breathers and put a catch can setup on but I may just leave my breathers on also.

I did a 93 octane tune so I can drive it into the keys this weekend since they don't have e85 down there. Here is a quick video on the dyno at 15psi.
