Why did you have your exhaust run under the axle?

he said it wouldn't hit the ground, and it would be much easier... like 2 hours easier... he custom bent me tubing... so yeah... it's cool lookin' though. Plus, I have no back pressure at all hardly... and a supercharger or turbo would give me just about the right amount.. it's further incentive to actually do it

its been done and is being done as we speek its a pretty darn cheap thing to fab up... you can get the parts you need from a junk yard CHEAP and rebuild the turbo and what not (you had better.... lol and do it witht he best items out there not second hand quality) its not easy to fab up pipe so you sould need to get a good template or match it to a given car over and over..... i would try to set the price 1500 if you want to sell them faster than you can make them... or 2000-2500 if you want to sell one now and again.

but with anything you sell you have to get a name for you and you need to make good quality kits else you wont be doing it for very long, make a good name and a good product for a good price and you wont have a problem shortly doing a good amount of buziness, there are not many turbo niches filled for the v6 mustang world.... and they are pretty easy to fab up~

a guy in my electricity class said he would build me a twin turbo for my car with turbo headers and all that jazz I'll need, except, I don't think he put the forged internals on there, but two T-3 turbo's... when I talked to him about having a smaller one and a larger one so the larger one could spool up while the smaller one was providing low end boost, he laughed and said it wasn't needed. He wants $3000, and it'll be installed and all that for that plus a custom built computer I guess... I wonder how he got to building computers for cars from complete scratch and yet he's in Principles of Electricity where we're learning circuits... (I've already learned circuits, but I needed a class)... basically, good idea, or bad idea?

if you dont put forged internals in and all that you might as well forget running over 10 psi~ i would only go single turbo there is little need for two turbos one will do the job better probably anyway.

so would you say one T3 or one T4?... would I just use one side of the exhaust?... how would I use both? If I had a skematic, I might be able to work something up

I leave mine on unless i feel like burnin some rubber, but with it "on" the computer senses loss of traction, and applies the brakes where needed, and will limit power to the engine.

well i would still perfer a supercharger due to they have been used far more than turbos once the turbo kits start to be common ground i would think about it for sure due to they are better in alot of ways than a blower, I dont really care about having 500rwhp for a street car just enough to have fun with a 9 psi blower would be fine by me after i get my heads/intake/cam turbos are just expensive and there are no professional kits out there only home made set ups wiht no warranties and all that.

I'd consider some sort of junk yard turbo setup but I don't know enough about them to even try. If you know what your doing it would be sweet! I'm going to supercharge just because it is a more forgiving setup and I'm learning as I go.

i cant see spending 2 grand for pipe.... if that included the turbo .... maybe but.... i can get pipe fabed up for pretty darn cheap mandrel bent with stainless steel piping.
