95 5.0 going on3 turbo DIY intercooler

Okay so I'm doing a piece together turbo kit and am looking to do a universal intercooler kit and am looking for some info based on which one you would buy based on the pics I post, the reason for this is to save money to have for buying my fuel system, not sure which kit will have all the bends that I need! Please help

What will matter is the tubing. You want the correct set of tubing with the correct bends and the correct routing. If not you will have a whole set of useless pipes.


Call them they got tons of stuff.

Piecing it together might not be the best idea, they go new for $1600 shipped on LRS I doubt you'll be able to piece one together for less than that or if you do it'll only be a few $hundred.

Then just get the CX racing intercooler kit and modify it as needed to fit in your car. Might need to cut and weld a few things or just do couplers but it shouldn't be too much to route the tubing from the turbo to the intercooler. For a turbo... honestly there are really good reviews out now on the On3 67mm ball bearing turbo. They're made in the same plant that the Master Power turbos were in Brazil.

Ok so I'm confused now. You already have the On3 kit hotside then? Honestly you might just want to call Chad at On3Performance and see if he'll sell you just the coldside. Or re-sell your hotside and just buy the whole kit. I've been through trying to piece things together on all different aspects of these cars, you'll go through more asspain and likely spend more money than if you just bought the complete kit.

I'd sell the hotside and just buy the whole On3 kit. As I said, less asspain and you will have a complete bolt in kit.

Also will want to do the trans as the T-5 will be on borrowed time at that level. Rear upgrade is always a good idea if one plans on anything besides street radials and then there is suspension, chassis stiffening and the tune also. And if you plan on running on the track you might as well do all the track safety stuff now since a turbo 5.0 should be able to break into the 11s no problem.

I had one, I hated it. It shifts like a box of rocks and you still need to upgrade the 10 spline input if you want to push much past 500hp which you'd need a built motor/aftermarket block for anyway. My recommendation is an Astro A5. Its a T-5 on roids and will take 600+ easy.

How much are they? And aren't they just the internals or an actual trans?

Astroperformance.com - Your Manual Drivetrain Specialist

They're the best trans you can put in the car pretty much. Half the weight of a Magnum, will hold a ton of power and, being a T-5, is the smoothest shifting transmission you can get in a Mustang. Only downside is no gear between 4th and OD like a 6 speed.

They might look expensive, but you aren't going to put a new trans in the car for less $$. Not something that will safely hold 400-500hp anyway.

I have a TKO and my boy has a Astro T5 built by Promotion and his is like butter and my trans is a little notchy and tough shifting passed 6k. If my hadn't come with one and I didn't rebuild it (half assed of course) with the upgrade carbon fiber and some bronze I would have bought a Astro any day of the week. Plus his car is a 363 single turbo pushing 700 and something to the wheels.

No, the link I sent you was to the Astro home page. They are just advertising the 600. It sucks. There is a browse function on the top left of the website...

No, they are a wannabe Astro. Some ppl will claim that they are the same gearsets, they aren't. Anyone who has seen the G Force and Astro gears next to each other can clearly pick out which is which. Astro is physically much bigger.

$2800 for the best one. You get a $300 refund if you ship them your core though. Shipping using their labels is $75. There is an option upon checkout to include this service. Being a T-5 externally, it is a direct bolt in and will work with all your parts. Although you would want to upgrade to a top end organic clutch or ceramic puck clutch or even a twin disc if you are planning on 400-500rwhp.

Not sure what else is done to the car but you will also need to make sure you have the fuel to support it, the suspension/tires, the chassis stiffening and a spot on tune once done. Also will probably want a good ignition box to keep the spark from getting blown out when you come into boost.

That makes a lot of sense lol what about going auto? What are your recommendations In that area? I'm hoping for 460hp and 500 ft lbs so nothing to retarded power wise, but 3,000 is a little steep for a trans plus turbos love auto trans?

Swap your car to AODE and get an AODE that is rebuilt with 4R guts. On a budget, pick up a low mileage 4R70w from a wrecker (from a 98-up V6, the V8 versions have the modular bolt pattern but the V6 shares the bolt pattern with the old 5.0) and control it with a Baumann controller or a full manual valve body. You'd have to do a MVB with a C4 as well. You are going to pay $300-$500 for a good 4R, then another $500 for the controller and $600-$1k for a good converter. That is before any of the auto swap goodies, figure another $200-$300 for the right yoke, shifter any crossmember mods etc... This is also not factoring in any labor.

$2800 for a built 5 speed starting to sound reasonable yet?

Moral of the story is, 500hp and cheap are not in the same sentence. Not if you want the car to be any sort of reliable or be a DD. I'm not trying to be an ***, but just trying to illustrate how quick it adds up. Figure $1600 for the turbo, $3k for the trans shipped, another $500 for fuel and then if the chassis/suspension is stock you'll need another $1500-$3k for that as well depending on what you have. Finally $600 for the dyno tune. And then you have to be prepared to pull/replace stuff if it lets go at that level.

Again, not trying to be an ***, but a lot of ppl start buying stuff only to stop halfway because they had 0 idea how much extra **** was needed and how much they were going to get into it for.
