Cool! Not that many DIY sn95s. At some point I want to convert my 97 from blower to turbo.

All of my build pics can be found on my website. It's a 351w twin turbo Holset HY-35. Aluminum heads, 5.0 HO roller cam, 1.7 roller rockers, forged pistons, 9:1 CR, modified powerstroke diesel truck intercooler, modified bronco oil pan, custom fuel rails, custom exhaust step tube logs, custom intercooler piping, custom v-band flanges, custom exhaust, custom upper intake, modified Professional Products Hurricane single plane carb intake. Megasquirt n spark extra PCM. Just finished it last weekend.. have yet to fire it up. That's this weekend's project. I still need to straighten stuff out in the engine bay to make it look a little better, but I'll do that after I get everything working properly. [/URL]

Is there a reason you dont see many DIY turbos on a 4.6? Ive really been thinking of switching from blower to turbo.

I've been investigating and watching because I'm considering going this route.

I think the main reasons is that 4.6L mustangs are still new compared to the Foxes. A lot the cars I have been seeing are 80s foxes. The nice thing though is that you can see what works and what doesn't and hopefully apply it to your own build, even if things have to be somewhat different.

The 4.6 also takes up more space (especially the DOHC). So it's a tighter fit.

And superchargers are so ubiquitous, proven, and (relatively) cheap, that most people simply go with what is known to work and not going to create a bunch of headaches.

There are no good reasons you don't see more turbo 4.6s. The pros: for a 4.6, you can run your stock block to much higher hp than 5.0s. Cons-worse stock rods and pistons compared to pre 93 5.0s. But pistons/rods are easier and cheaper than aftermarket 5.0 blocks. I think the other thing is a space issue. It is a little harder to run the pipes with the wider 4.6. That being said, someone on turbomustangs just ran everything under the crossmember and it really was not bad. If my procharger ever dies, my 97 will become a turbo car for sure.

Do you mean the K-member? Is that the guy the rear mounted the turbos, or is there a different car?

I just joined up over there because I am considering ditching my (as yet uninistalled) P1-SC for a DIY turbo. A good reason to learn how to weld.

If it's the one I'm thinking, he ran off the stock headers, and back under the k-member where it merged infront of the motor at the turbo. Pretty slick setup, and he says he doesn't have any real clearance issues with it.

I'm not counting rear mounted turbos. Powershifted95gt is thinking of the right guy.

You all have awesome looking cars.
No belt on the car in the pic, just look over that part and yes I hate those plug wires as well.

Nice setup. One thing you can do about plug wires is get the 90 degree make em yourself ones from summit. I ran them over the valve covers and dropped em down to the plugs. It comes out pretty neat. Before that I had the motorsport wires and was burning them up on the headers.

Lil Red 88 Coupe (just got done with it last week)





Green Machine 95 GT (should have the upgrades done and it back on the road before April)





Looking at the pics just now, it really looks like the 'cooler in the Coupe is larger. They're actually the exact same

What kind of speckled paint is that in the engine bay? I like it.
