Thinking about a turbo kit

I was at this guy shop that races and build some fast *** cars well he put a turbo on his 2001 gt and pulls over 400 hp all stock motor and running in the 10's I was wondering is this a good kit to go wit
Look at this on eBay:

1988 Mustang 5.0 Single Turbo Kit Foxbody System 88

Re: Thinking about a turbo kit

That's an On 3 Kit and as far as I know they have been decent kits.

Read all the way to the bottom on that page though.
The shipping is $85 and you will need another $720 worth of parts to complete the installation.
So the total cost is around $2280.

Go to CamQuest, put in your engine info and let them choose a cam for you.


I did that and then compared the specs to my X303 cam and found that they were almost identical, so I'm just using the X303 I have with my supercharger build.

Same thing im looking to do, a Boss block 331 dished pistons with a turbo cam and a on3 turbo kit. Just need to peice it together lol turbo first, then tko600 this summer and save for another 10-12 months for a strong motor. Im not even going to try a stock block id rather pay the little extra now for the peice of mind later

Re: Thinking about a turbo kit

Here's the manual transmission you really need for a high performance street car.

G-Force Street 6-Speed Transmission


Or you can upgrade your T-5 to handle about half of what that transmission will handle.


T-5 Performance Rebuild
