incon parts to start a kit? long....

Guys,

After months of eye popping searching, I have finally peiced together the exhaust manifolds, and downpipes from the 5.0 incon kits, as a mate for these parts are 2 t-25's

My questions are these:

What should I look for in a budget shortblock to handle boost? what compression/parts should I belooking for?

What can I use for tubing to hook the turbos to (INTERCOOLER?) the intake? Cost?

Can I get by with integral housing blow off valves?

Do I need more injector than the 36's I have now?...

The supporting hardware is:

out of the box Twisted Wedges (61cc)
cobra upper and lower (untouched)
1.7 stud rockers with custom cam at max .540 lift
??

??

Any help? advice?



Guy

incon kits use GT35 turbos

even the old DDMI kit used GT28s

im not sure what the t25 are or what there potential is but if the numbers mean anything i suspect they are pretty small


anyways if i were you id sell the incon manifolds and just build your own using shorty headers, youll thank yourself later

well, I did research on these, they came from sr20det meaning 2.0 liter apiece. (small for a mustang). but, they were placed on an engine with a 7500 rpm redline.

I believe the exhaust A/R is .50 and the intakes are .80. What do we think?

I have them because they fit both the intake and the exhaust of the incon manifolds, allowing me to fit them in a location where I can make power, and keep ALL of my accesories.. Win-Win I think....

Mike, can you be more specific about the 'thank yourself later' comment?

he's probably referring to spark plug access (or lack thereof) with the incon manifolds.

Heck, I currently have problems with that on my #7,8 plugs and the KB bypass tubes.

TWOFAST,

if you had to do it all over again, what would you do?

What are you doing for a IC? I just bought a IC core that was destined to become a Incon IC and they had some Incon IC's in stock if interested I got their contact information and pricing from a thread over on Turbomustangs.com

As far as T25 turbos you can make a good bit of power with properly done ones. I know those are the sized turbos Turbolocity plans to use on their LT1 kits and if I remember right Harry said two properly done ones could be pushed to around 900hp for the pair. You can use mild steel for the IC tubing, which might be the easiest to work with if building this "DIY"

7 & 8, huh? try 1,2,3,4,5,6,7&8.
actually, it isn't that bad, but it's no walk in the park either.

yes. overall i'm happy with the kit, and certainly happy with the power it makes. nothing is perfect though.

all of them, huh?

Well I am REALLY glad I didnt bid on the v12 Incon manifolds on ebay, I dont think I could deal with 12 spark plugs let alone 12 with Incon manifolds...


They were probably ripoffs....

Thanks for the input,

I just learned that I now have ALL the incon parts for a kit, except the turbos (which I have now) and the intercooler.

I will work on this after I get my motor together... anybody in Columbia MO want to help?

Yeah, I have a hard time believing even 900 but that is what he said. I think the base ones he sells will support like 550 or so together, maybe it was 600. Cool thing is they are ball bearing and if I remember right have the wastegates integrated into them.

yeah spark plug access is what i was refering to, like twofast mentioned, its not THAT bad, especially after youve done it a few times and get the hang of it, its just it would be so much easier with a shorty header


i live in topeka ks which is about 2-1/2 hours west of you, my old incon kit still resides on my friends lx so if you need any pointers let me know

Mine look just like the incon turbos, but the wastegate (internal) is vented inside the casting.

If I remember correctly, the incons have a separate chamber...

Ill post pics if I can.

Mike,

When I get further with this, I may be paying you guys a visit to see exactly what I am getting into..

I love the idea of having something novel.... TERRIBLY novel.
