Twin turbo blow thru Pinto mockup done!

The mockup is done, i'll tear it all apart and weld everything up. Then i need to get the rest of the car done (paint/body, interior) The engine is a 383 stroker windsor (351w roller block) the block in the car was for mockup only.

That thing is awsome. It would be fun to do this to a mustang II and go beat up on the more popular mustang body styles.

1979 Mustang coupe, EFI 393, A/A intercooled Eaton m122, 4r70w trans, Megasquirt II, T-top swapped in.

1990 Mustang, 545 BBF, C-4 with brake, ladder bars, tunnel ram with two Predator carbs, solid roller cam, 9", 390/45r15 drag radials.

Totally cool. That is the ultimate to take the most down-pressed ford and make it into an "anything beater".
What is that front suspension from?

Did you ever have that car efi? I have this picture of a red pinto with an efi 351 in it hanging up in my office at work. I got it from one of these sites-I forget which. I have it hanging up next to my pinto brouchure.

My friends yellow Pinto in the vid runs 10.60's w/Boss block/dual quad hi-rise.
How quick do you expect yours to be w/twin turbo setup?
Looks to be top notch workmanship.

I guess it'll really depend if i can get traction, should be an easy 550 to 600hp on pump gas in a 2740lb car. It equates to 9.6 to 9.9 in that horsepower range and 8.7 if i set the boost to "kill" on C16. But seriously....my 26x10 ET streets aren't gonna hook that power. This is NOT a race car, it doesn't have a cage. I drive it 99% on the street, with my kids in the back.....i just have a thing for more hp than i can actually use. I'll make one FULL pass down at the track and get my ass booted for safety violations.....but i'll have a timeslip, if i live.

now my question to you. Why do you have a pinto brouchure on your office wall and a picture of my Pinto? Are you a "closet" Pinto fanatic?

I really don't like automotive witch hunts. I think the pinto was a victim. If it had come out of Japan, everyone would be praising it.
I saw that brochure for sale and thought it was pretty interesting to see the pinto in its original context-a small practical economical car. Not many hatch backs around at that time either. So I pinned it up on my wall. It gets alot of shock value. Then I saw your efi version and its like wow that motor fits in there like a glove. So that needed to go next to the brochure.
When I got into building turbo stuff, I realized that the pinto motor is related to the 2.3 that wound up in the turbo coupe. Also, a bunch of people have built turbo pintos using the turbocoupe setup. Then I'm thinking, the car does not look bad at all, it is rear wheel drive, it is really light, you never see them anymore, most people hate them-what a perfect car to modify.
Not sure if that qualifys as a "pinto fanatic" but I have given them some though lol. Now if all of a sudden I see some pinto for sale for 100 bucks......I may have to start yet another project that I hardly have time for.

I thought it was a track car. Wow, it should be a barrel of fun as a street car.
Mavericks, Pintos, Fairmonts. Never had one but I'm really starting to get an itch.

My Pinto story is I bought a 78 for the gas mileage it might get ,owned it for 1 month then this stupid girl ran a red light -hit me head on and totaled it. I bought from the insurance co. and then proceeded to put a 302 into it. It was a ball to drive,I never had it on the track but I would estimate it was a low 13

That's the way I look at potential project cars too. I like the '71-73 Pintos the best and I'd like to get one as a 2.3 Turbo recipient. Then I found something even more uncommon that I want; an early '70s Mercury Capri!

Those early capri V6s were quick in the day. Nice and small too. Not sure what those motors are related to. Is the 4 cyl version something you could do a turbocoupe swap on?

Luckily it doesn't matter what engine it came with, the TC engine and trans will fit just fine in either a Pinto or Capri. I'm not sure what chassis the Merc got, but I suspect it's related to a Mustang II(which were available with a 4cyl as I recall).

Don't believe its related to the II since it was basically an imported chassis.

I bought one of those V6s but by the time I got it home it had a rod knock and I made the guy take it back.

Does it share anything with any other car sold here? The bay actually looks similar to a Merkur.
