Never heard of a "godspeed" turbo, but the name alone would make me shy away from it.

See your post on superchargers for info on what you will need to get your car ready as engine requirements are close to the same.
A turbo will be much more complicated and expensive than a supercharger as you will have lots more components such as manifolds, tubing, blow off valves, intercoolers, etc. etc. thna you do with a SC.
See the sticky post on SC & TC, follow the links and you will find components and turbos. I believe they said a TC Kit could be put together for around $2k.

Re: Turbo

Just buying a turbo is the least of your purchases...

You will need all of the piping from your manifolds to the turbo, piping from the turbo to the intercooler, an intercooler, piping from the intercooler to the intake, wastegate(s), blow off valve, wastegate springs, etc etc etc....

You also will need to figure out what size turbo you want to go with, or if you want to go with two. Are you wanting a quick spool without a ton of top end, do you want alot of lag down low but a ton of power in the top of the power band?

Also, how are you going to tune the car for the turbo, will probably be easier to convert to a blow-thru setup on a 95, but you will need bigger injectors at a minimum.

O, and throw your cold air intake away, it's useless when going turbo.

Re: Turbo

most good quality turbo kits will be 5-7k then you have to pay for install and then for tuning and all the other little things needed that may not come with the kit (injectors, fuel pump etc)

Re: Turbo

I will repeat what Lowfyln and SpectorV said: the most important things to think about are Fuel upgrade (bigger injectors, Fuel pump) and good tune!

Plan on double what ever you spend on a Turbo kit you will spend on fuel upgrades and professional tune.

This is what I would recommend. It has everything included! Just1979-1995 mustang turbo system need to install and Tune!
