    Thats a huge difference between the mp t70 and the s400. Can't wait to see the results!

    lol where did that beer bottle come from? :D

    What are your plans for the fuel system? You listed 60lb injectors but the pic shows 42's and stock fuel rails ... just curious what the power goal for the project is :chacha: Nice project can't wait to see where the turbo is gonna sit! :welder:

    Re: 87 Mustang GT 358W S400 build underway!

    thanks everyone! im gonna try to run 60lb inj and a PMAS blow thru MAF. I still have to get rails and a regulator. Im gonna run an air to air intercooler from VS Racing i think its a 31x12x3 w/ 3" inlet and outlet. Turbo sits on drivers side. I bought part of the hotside from Ralphiejantz on here. Here's how he set it up.


    this is one of Carmine's pictures from his car. like i said, ill have an air to air.

    im sure the 60lb'ers will be a stretch. anyone make 72lb high impedance injectors?

    dont really have a set # in mind on horsepower, as long as it goes down the track and runs some sort of single digit 1/4 mile pass and stays together :D :chacha:

    and the beer bottle is from a local bowling alley :cheers:

    Your build is almost identical to mine except you are doing EFI and a few less cubes. I almost bout that crossover and DP I just didn't like how it came across the top. It is definately a top notch construction :2thumbs: Good luck on the build.

    been awhile since i updated this so here goes. Shortblock is prett much together. Ill get some pics of it in a couple of days. Waiting on a windage tray and main studs. Picked up an air to air intercooler 31x12x4 w/ 3" in/out. I had to trim some of the core support fiberglass behind the bumper cover and some of the opening to the ground effects but not bad at all. Bought a bunch of Aeromotive stuff (A1000, filters, lines, fittings) from a friend who is stepping up to bigger. Anyways, got the intercooler placed where I want it and tucked alot of the wiring into the fenders to help clean things up a bit. Still have to tidy it up some more but itll have to wait for the motor as the rest of it is engine harness and gauges for the most part. The engine bay is getting painted (so is the car) before I set the motor in so i hosed it down tonight. So, here's a few more shots

    Cool build, I have a very similar build going on 418W with a S475 and an AOD.

    Here are some pics of the engine.....I'm finally getting close to start up.

    Thanks, yeah, same car in signature. When i had the 302 and T70 in the car, just had a stock A9L and adjusted timing, FP, and used a BTM. Not exactly sure what im gonna do yet for the new motor. Been looking at a Tweecer or a PMS.


    Turbodragradial, setup looks good! That thing should haul some ass :chacha:
