Tork tech install

This build is going a lot better than i had thought. The bridge is on but didnt take a pic of it. I painted the valley black. Have to rent a crank puller sunday to swap pulleys. Im sure this setup will be done sooner than i had thought.Click image for larger version

Sounds good. Now would have been a good time to put some new valve covers on but the trs ones are $250

Yeah but no real reason to do it besides looks. New valve cover seals would be a good idea though.

If you could put together a rough guesstimate of how much everything cost I'd be interested to see it. From what I've seen most ppl come in between $3500 (most everything used) or $5k on the high end buying new with a really low mileage takeoff blower.

I was in the market for a blower and was about to make a deal with a guy for a v3 vortech and i saw another guy have this tork tech kit for $2500. He bought it in 2009 but never dropped it in because he wrecked his car and didnt have full coverage on it. I had to drive 3 hours half way to pick it up bought a new fuel pump little stuff etc. i bought a boost and temp gauge to. The injectors, maf, air filter, and stuff like that that they dont usually have in their kits he had already. I lucked out on this find big time. Only down side was the big bag of bolts he had. Nothing was labeled where they went so sorting all that out took some time.

For the record everything before dropping the blower was pretty smooth. Dropped the blower in this morning and it was a pain in the rear. Wiring on the firewall is in the way. Egr tube in the way. Putting the rear passenger intake bolt was plain awful. The air plenum is in the way and it takes a universal joint and about 18" of rachet extentions. Coil packs werent fun either. But as you can see that part is over with. I would say this project is about halfway over. All thats left is heat exchanger and wiring for the gauges.Click image for larger version

ID:	165128 blurry picture but as you can see the blower drive belt finally on. The one i was provided was an inch short and we ended up tearing it up trying to put it on. It ended up being a wild goose chase to find another one just by its length and in 8 rib. Not a lot of auto parts stores carry 8 rib and you have to order them. The belt we had was a napa brand and i ended up finding out that we had a napa store in my town. I called and they just so happend to have one just an inch longer in stock. I called tork tech before hand and they weren much help. They just said to buy 3-4 belts and see which one works best. I wasnt about to buy that many belts for $45 a piece. So i lucked out and this one worked just fine. Going to be filling up everything with radiator fluid and start working on the heat exchanger this weekend.

Looking good I've always considered this kit later on for a possible power added when I no longer daily my current one. Hope the rest goes smoothly for you! Can't wait to see it all when its all finished.

Thank you. There just always seems like something always comes up to slow us down. But im sure thats with every blower install. This is my first one and i dont plan on doing anything else to the car for a long time. We are going to finish this up as soon as we can but we have til late october til i take it to blankenship to tune it. Ive been keeping him updated on the build to. He seems excited to see what itll do on the rollers. After all the fuilds and etc is done we are going to attempt to fire it up

That valley looks odd..
I think it's missing some stuff:
•pushrods
•lifters
•rockers arms
•springs

Oh and I think they threw in an extra cam in there too ;-P

Just do yourself a favor when you start up for the first time. Make sure that the longer belt is indeed the right one. Check for pulley slide with the belt. You may need to make sure the tensioner is working properly. Just FYI.

Great job in getting the assembly done. How long once you got the top end cleaned and ready for install did it take you to finish the top end?

We ended up destroying the belt that came with the kit. I even busted a knuckle holding down the tensioner lol. The new one still seemed really tight its just best to be put on there with 2 people. The tensioner is on half its travel when we got done. We worked on the top end maybe 8 hours. Longer with trips to the store for bolts and etc. im going to clean up the engine some more before we start on the heat exchanger. It was a lot more dirty than i had expected. Ive heard that stuff called gunk works best. Thing ive learned the most about this build is that its a good idea to have a friend to help you. Im lucky that i have a ford mechanic as a neighbor. Probably wont hit the project again til sunday.

Well if that belt is really tight that is on there now, just pay attention to it for the first few start ups. I have seen belts break from being too tight. And that is the last thing you need after all this work.

If his tensioner is halfway loaded he should be fine. I second that Tork Tech is pretty useless as far as customer support though. They make a decent product but once you buy it you are on your own. Kenne Bell is a much better company in all regards but the biggest issue they have is their manifolds have port flow issues when one gets up into the huge power ranges. The TT kit is pretty much the only way to mount the big Kenne Bells and not run into this problem. Its also the only way to get a Whipple on a 2V AFIAK.

I do wonder how much longer they are going to be around. They kind of remind me of how Incon was back in the day for the 5.0 pushrod. That was the best turbo kit I have ever seen and they go for a pretty penny if you can find them used even today.

I think the only thing that is needed to fit the kb or whipple is to buy a plate for the lower intake to attach the blower, new nipples for the intercooler, and intercooler. I priced all that and it was around $500 for those parts.
