turbo for stock 2004 GT

I'm wondering what turbo I can use for my GT I'm not really trying to upgrade the internals due to the fact Imah sell it after a year, (trying to get that 93 cobra) just a noob when it comes to turbo don't know the difference between mm brands etc, o also are the front wheels a different size from the rear wheels, I always thought they were, but just trying to make sure befor I purchase matte black Cobra wheels. Thanks in advance✌

Why buy a turbo if you're just gonna sell it in a year? That's a lot of money to drop only to sell it a year later

That's the first time I've heard of somebody trying to install a turbo to add value. A turbo kit is an easy $3k+ venture not always including a tune. I don't see dropping $3k on a $6k car will adding up to 9k+.

If you want it for power then have at it, but as a financial investment that's not the smartest idea.

Let me just direct you to this guy here who has a badass turbo GT that won't sell because he's asking way too much. http://www.sn95forums.com/showthread.php?t=66630

A hellion kit would be your best bet over a on3 performance kit. Won't add much value and yeah it possible some younger kid with his parents money would sucker into it but the odds of that are fairly rare.

I strongly advise YOU to not modify your car in anyway, shape, or form. Drive like it is and try your best not to destroy it. That's your best bet.

If you don't know how to tell if your front and rear wheels are different sizes, you have no business owning a car with forced induction.

Trade for a mitsu eclipse if you want a fast turbo car that kids seem to be impressed by for some odd reason lol. If you can't tell wheel size don't waste the poor pony

If your selling it in a year the tune, kit, and install will run you at least 6K and nobody is going to want to buy it if you do all the work yourself.......

Because everyone will know your the one who fouled up a turbo install, went from spending 6K to 12k and now wants 20K SVT Cobra price for a pos.

If you can't tell tire sizes you have no business building such a project.

If you are trying to make the car worth more then you need to make body and paint perfect, buff it, wax it, repair all damages. Clean engine make sure everything works, and make it clean, new tires, change oil. Keep the car simple. No stains on floor or headliner, clean under seats and such areas is what people would want to be. Maybe order new headlights if the ones you have are hazy.

I agree with speed Mister. Get it as clean and detailed as possible before you list it. I have looked at so many cars and people don't even do this, which I don't get as it costs Nothing. Everything working, clean, turn key is what people want.

On3 performance sells a kit right around $2,000. Ive heard nothing but good things out of their kit. They have a car that has their kit on it thats had 20k miles on the turbo with no problems.

Yeah but that kit is for the more mechanically inclined because it needs some fabbing for some parts to fit. If you do a bit of research for it, it has some down falls like needing a tubular k-member for one.

99% your gonna need a tube k member to run a turbo. Its recommended to have one with any brand turbo you go with. They might not tell you that in the description but youll wish you had one when your car is all apart.

By what I've read OP has no business trying to put a turbo on the car. For 2 reasons, if you can't tell what your tire sizes are you need to learn more about cars before a turbo. And secondly it won't add value, do what speed mister said, make the car look better, the paint goes a long way.


Bullitts are better than Bullets

Where I live the cost of living is expensive you peasants lol but yeah I'm surrounded by rich kids. And I guess I should rephrasethe question about the tires I was asking do they have to be the same size or can I put 18s in the back and put 17s in the front without a problem or will I have to mod the suspension right away, and no I will not put the turbo in myself a shop will do all that . All work and tunes week come out to 4500 with a payment plan of 650 monthly. Thanks to my flozzzyy of a sis who knows the shop owner lol but in the ends I wanna sell it around the 8g area but like I said I might end up keeping it cuz this is how it'll end up looking

If anything I think a turbo will decrease value. Specially with op's knowledge of turbos.

I think people would rather buy a stock gt Just because they would like to build it themselves.

That's True othe r reason why was just in case I kept it I can build up on it and use the total power of the turbo. So if i kept it for a while and finally blew out the motor that's when I would upgrade all the internals with a forged block that way I'd have everything upgraded from Tran to suspension top differentials. Etc etc. But if that's the case I think I'll just get rid of this GT as is and try and get the car that made me love the concept of turbo the 2005 Wolfsburg jetta gli. It's slowlike the GT but much better interior and turbo already included, but I think I'll just enhance the exterior and clean the engine what speed said

I wouldn't trade my gt for a gli.

I ran some kid boosting 26 psi in his turbo gti hatchback. He was so happy because he beat me by 100mph he was only 2.5 cars on a stock 2v v8

And alec I would only buy it due to the fact It already has a turbo in italso the same amount of money you put in for bolt ons for the GT you would get a lot more horsepower with the same amount of money on the Jetta. Well not a lot 15 to 30 hp but again i just like that car cuz of that load *** swoosh it comes with. But true the gli model is more bark no Bite, one big factor also is you can recline your seat all the way back on a mustang you can't do that which sucks lol

I created my account just to respond~

After years and years of reading this board I finally created an account. Just to tell you gt_nez to please reconsider working on your mustang. Please sell it, buy your wonderful and superior pre-turbo'd german car, lose this forum link and have a nice life. You don't seem to have a grasp on the very basics of life much less the soul of mustang ownership. Its about far more than about a cars worth or how it performs. For many of us old timers it was an underdog story in the 80's and 90's and we passed the blood of mustangs down to our children, now your age. You obviously didn't get that from your parents but from some video game or movie. You belong to the tuner world not to american muscle world. Go away.
