Well I figured I would make a post here to document my build as I do more and more to it. I just recently purchased my first turbo "kit", its a used HP hotside and coldside kit that I'll be peicing together the rest of as it goes along. I hope to have everything done by April at the latest. Its going on a 1989 Mustang GT
Here's the rundown of parts so far:
HP 1 3/4" primary manifolds
HP 3" Crossover with slipjoint
HP 3" coldside
HP 3.5" Core IC
HP 3.5" downpipe
TiAL 50mm BOV
TiAL 44mm Wastegate
Walboro GSS340 Fuel Pump
Spec Stage II clutch
I plan on getting some VHT "Flameproof" high temp paint and painting the entire hotside, then using some DEI exhaust wrap and silicone coating on the entire hotside as well to help protect everything.
I'm still undecided on the turbocharger itself, but I've narrowed it down to the Master Power T70, Precision PT6776, or Turbonetics 62-1. I'm looking for around 400-450whp right now and full boost by 3500rpm.
I still need to buy injectors, a MAF, colder plugs, new wires, plug wire protector's, turbo blanket, turbo, oil lines, electric fan, boost guage and pod, and whatever I need to get it tuned (will be tuned by my friend Kevin @ PAS in Richmond, VA).
Here's a couple of pictures of the car that its going on:
I just copied my thread from tm.com over to here so the guys who dont go on there can see it. I'm going to document the stages of the build/install as they happen
Thanks to rob for the killer deal on the kit!
