What qualifies as 'good' for you? Lots of companies sell roll cages for foxes... are you drag racing? Track car?

Good turbo would be a upgraded turbo kit from on3 performance. Just make sure you get the precision turbo and not the master power. Jay on this site can speak from experience and he turboed his 5.0

I actually really like the piping and fit of the On3 kit. Just don't get the stock turbo, definitely upgrade it. Master Power, Precision anything other than the one included in the kit. Also buy your own injectors. I had an On3 injector bad out of the packaging. Not that it means anything but now If I could do it over I would stick with Ford Racing injectors or something name brand.

1500 is the base kit. The upgraded turbo is around $300 more. You will also need new injectors and the new maf. Notated how you look at it it's close to $2500-3k for everything you need. Also, it depends what mods you currently have? What fuel pump do you have now?

30lb injectors will probably be too small. You would also need a 255lph pump.

I used 42lb injectors with that kit. I'm upgrading to 60's right now for all my upgrades. The meth kit definitely won't hurt.

Ah okay, turbos are fun. Every once in awhile I think about going another direction but I just love the sound of my turbo.

Check out broke dick racing. They have an eBay store. I bought an 8 point roll bar for 279. Te only thing is that all the pieces are made just a tad long so there is some cutting involved. But it's a great deal and my cage has already been tested.

Probably saved my life so I think that qualifies as good quality

Yea it will be done in about two weeks. I got t-boned In the driver side door. The cage didn't even bend or crack a weld. It not only saved me, but saved the unibody from any damage whatsoever. He hit me going about 35, so without it Who knows what would've happened to me or the car. You can see in the picture the shape of the door bar in the door.

That's great news. I remember when it happened. It's almost happened to me and I pray it never does. What all did they have to do to fix it?

Straighten the front fender, straighten the P/S/ rear panel behind the tire, replace the door and rear quarter panel and window. replace the d/s/ interior panels, replace front P/S rim, and repaint most of the car.
