I just orderd a ponydown.net kit and am just wondering if someone whos done a twin turbo kit can help me out with what ill need. I already have 1 turbo from a 88 auto turbo coupe, im planing on 42lb injectors. what else will i need? anyone ever have a setup like this on a stock motor? and how does it run? I would like to get this done in the next month. thanks for any help

id rebuild the whole engine, or atleast put forged pistons in there. so you dont snap it in half with the boost your going to run, not sure of anything else hope someone else post.

I'm interested in this kit also. What other turbo's can you run besides the Ford ones?-They're pretty rare in my area. I'm pretty sure his engine already has forged pistons and can be ran fine, as your not always in the boost like a supercharged car is.

your not always in boost, your under pressure, my bro has the NOVI2000 and doesnt really go into boost, but sometimes he does, man i like that SC you can here it whine when your crusing. you can go with any turbo you just have to fabricate the exhaust and such. like a junkyard turbo for instance i see that all the time, and the people just fab up the parts that they need for the turbo.

So the ponydown downpipes will bolt on to pretty much any junkyard T3 turbo but you just have to fab up your exhaust to match their downpipes? Thats not too bad.

If you are an 87, you do have FORGED pistons. No worries. I'd find another working IHI turbo of another 87/88 Turbocoupe. They're a little smaller than a T3 so they will spool up a lot faster and are already set to run 9psi. You'll need to get a GOOD fuel pump, MAF conversion, 70mm bullet MAF set for 42 pound injectors (to be safe), as BIG an intercooler as you can find.you can bolt on everything you have then where you want it, then trailor it to a performance shop that will mandrel bend the pipes from the turbos to intercoolers then the pipe from the intercooler to the throttle body. Pic a shop that can burn you a chip from readings on their dyno for 94 octane (if your IC isn't big enough you'll also need to get manual boost adjuster...prolly should anyway). And a low boost blow-off valve would be a good purchase too.

Good luck and have fun
