Boost?

Okay so I want to do some research, what size turbo would be good for a 2000 v6 with 135,XXX OG miles that has never had any boost to it, I think it would be fun to get some boost and blow up the engine just to give myself a reason to build something with my father. Thanks for any advice

This is in the top 10 dumbest post on here.

Build the motor now if that's what you want. Will save you money, you take the risk of messing up other stuff, lifting a head spliting the block etc.
Just build the motor now, or build a separate short block with your dad bud.

I agree. Just build a separate motor right now.

okay Rapinator126, the only reason i ask this was because me or my father have never driven a car to the point its blown up so we thought it might be fun, but at the same time i want to just get a good start on where i need to be at if i decide i don't want to blow up the engine and plus the car that we (I) have is kind of a junker that i plan to put as much money into it as a college student can do, just trying to have some fun.

Blowing up a motor is not necessarily fun, if you get lucky it will just be a piston or a rod, with as many miles as you have on your motor your " fun" could verry possibly get verry $$$$$$. Destroying a head, block etc.

Just build a motor on the side

We have thought of that that is why I said if I decide not to, we both just want to have fun together, even if that means replacing an engine. if I could just get the right info we would probably go the other way and just build the engine and not have to worry about blowing anything plus I kinda just want to do this for us because I will probably be moving to Germany after college and more than likely not be able to take my stang for a while or see my father

Then blow it up. Spray a 250 dry shot on it and call it a day

Okay this was a dumb question to ask and we were defenatly not going to be using a new turbo, and yes we are going to just build the engine, we are going to be as far away as possible from the original thought, so we can all forget about the blowing up the engine.

Maybe the car will just explode and crash into a river in a blaze of glory. Sounds like a fun son and father experience. Blowing up a motor and costing yourself money is pointless and not a good father son activity to fix ignorance. Me and my dad pride ourselves on fixing cars and other stuff the right way and spending money smart and not wasting it. That way he has taught me to be a man and not a dumbass kid my whole life and teach my son later on in life to be smart with money.

That's a true father son bonding experience.

Listen to everyone above, saving your money and building a brand new engine and selling the old one will leave you both more satisfied and will enjoy the new build a lot more.

Sorry to have been an *** but wasting money just isn't smart.

No you are not an *** sluber4 and we were just going to go to a track and try. But like I said we are just going to build not waste time, we've decided to go turbo and build the car to make at least 250hp and be drivable

This is a good idea I've done some research and I think the best bang for your buck and am doing it myself. But be sure to use a 94-95 t-bird SC it has better blower and 36lb injectors instead of 30lb found in the older SC's. Also as they had heating problems I would invest in a better inter cooler and a 4core aluminum radiator and if auto an aftermarket remote tranny cooler.
