Going turbo!!!!

Well fellow mustang people! I have decided that I want to turbo my mustang! I'm not talking about the procharger sold on American Muscle, I'm talking about a fat turbo. I've looked online and can't find a turbo kit. So I'm going to get the piping and manfold custom made. Thoughts?

The Procharger is a Supercharger. Good luck in finding a Turbocharger for your V6. Oh, be prepared to spend a lot of change.

Someone on Cyclone mustangs facebook parts exchange is selling a twin turbo kit. It looks like a pretty nice kit he's selling. It would make a killer daily driver or road race car with that setup.

I would read through alrefire's thread BOSS227 before I bought the LPF kit. He had some issues out of it, and his thread is a pretty good read, so you will know what could possibly happen.

Don't get it unless you want LPF to do EVERYTHING. You're better off fabricating your own. As a guy who installed this kit, it's pretty easy. Takes 8 hours, but I would do a V8 and boost because the market is there for it, OP

Do a v8 mod. I am in a classic. Easier, quicker, and more badass. Just because it has the power of an older 3v, doesn't mean it handles power adder like it.

Both the 3v and 3.7 have crappy pistons.

I may be on a slightly off topic rant here, but i feel there's some things that need to be said.

The problem with boost is people always want more, hell, i personally am guilty of this. True story, when i had my first mazdaspeed3 (yes, ive had 2) i had basic bolt ons and really had no interest in even getting a downpipe because "spinning the tires is stupid, spinning aint winning." Which held true for ... maybe 2-3 months before i got beat and "ok well ... maybe a downpipe, but ill stay on pump gas, no E85." Again, 2-3 months later and im on E85 "but thats that." Until i got my FIRST big turbo ... and until i built the motor ... and until i was forced to run super sticky tires that last ~10k miles to actually have traction ... and until i put my SECOND bigger turbo on there ... and when it was all said and done i had spent an ungodly amount of money on my car and ruined it.

The best way i can think to describe how i Effed up was i mis-allocated how i used my car. I drove 95% of the time, just getting to and from where i needed to be, and i only raced the other maybe 5% of the time. What i had done though, was made my car a 5% car ... It was awesome, it was fast as hell, pulling 60-100 times in the high 3 seconds, but around town? Lol around town the thing had so much turbo lag it couldn't get out of its own way, my external wastegate fried 2 primary o2 sensors, i had a full stand along fuel system since you cant just swap out injectors on a DI car which was a pain to keep running properly ... things that could have easily not happened if i had shelled out the extra money up front, but like almost everyone else, i didn't, because "i can go boosted for only $xxx" lol ... no you cant. I tell people that now, whatever you think it will cost to go boosted, double it, and that's your real goal.

I regret nothing, but if i could go back and do it all again i would do it differently. I learned a ton, but i paid for it ... literally. All i can say is i see a lot of people in a rush to make their car a 5% car, but honestly i wouldn't. Ive even tuned quite a handful of people who come to me with a big turbo, big fuel system, lots of money, and we make good power on the Dyno, half these cars are over 450-500 whp, but after a few months, most of them just arent happy any more, because theres always one more part, or at the higher power levels this broke, or i cant drive my car until i can get better tires, or...... I will never come off the stock turbo again on a boosted car i own, because its just not worth it. If you want to have a boosted car for the sake of fun, i'd say the procharger may be the best bet since it will keep you a little more responsible than a turbo, but if you want to be out there "hurting feelings" like the LPF car, you're probably not going to have a good time, and going to get to the point where you just end up hating your car and wanting to sell it.

I understand its always your money and your decision, so take my rant for what its worth, but, if i can save at least one person a ton of money and headaches, id like to think some good came from this.

Wow volt wings thanks for the sound advice. Personally....I have flipped between just bolt ons and supercharger just for that reason...reliability. Don't hear a lot of complaints from the SC people.

+1. I've learned this just by helping alrefire and being his friend on a daily basis. Always trying to convince/force me into extreme power adders.

But really, what's the difference between a fat turbo and a skinny turbo? What about an athletically built turbo?

Athletically built = properly sized turbo
