  1. For those around from the original 5.0 movement, post up

    Pony wheels here were getting stolen off brand new cars sitting on dealership lots.
  2. BMW.

    Lounge
    I went to BMW, but had a lot of problems and more so with the dealerships than anything else. So I went to Mercedes and never had a problem there. But throughout it all, I always have owned at least one if not two Mustangs.
  3. So what is it....

    Lounge
    Some of it definitely is to blame on the ownership changes of various forums and how that, in turn, took away day to day interaction between the owners and members. Also, some of the companies that bought up the forums treated the places a little too much like businesses. I stopped being a...
  4. So what is it....

    Lounge
    Forums have seemed like a dying breed for a number of years now. I even have seen some people in recent days saying on FB how the Corral was one of the last to still be around that actually has some traffic but how the recent software/format change is pushing them away.
  5. Tee oil pressure adapter

    Turbochargers
    I did it a very long time ago and acquired the fittings from a local hardware store. As I recall it was a brass fitting into the engine block and that fitting was a T that I then had like a 45 degree fitting in on one side and did straight on the other. Sent from my iPad Nano
  6. Surging Update Now TB whistle.

    Turbochargers
    That is why I said if at all possible just swap out with another TB. Might answer the what ifs very quickly.
  7. 18 year old cartech kit

    Turbochargers
    Sounds like you have an old SS kit, log header on driver side? Probably a TE44 turbo or 60-1. It will work with better heads. I'd personally go with something like a T62-1. Going too radical with power levels on those SS kits just leads to issues and I suspect because of the very design of the...

    I agree, I think most fox body owners will be happy.

    Last I heard Joe Rivera has a set of jigs for this. I believe they are in his backyard and been there for over a decade. I'd imagine not in the best of shape after that long. Finding the guy could be "challenging" anyway.

    As I remember it hugged the frame rail but did not touch. Definitely was a three down pipe on each side. Keep in mind it was designed before any aftermarket I members existed. That is back in the day when people modified stock k members for better handling since no other option existed...

    I like all accessories to but for at least another couple years here the smog pump is still required due to emissions testing on cars up to 25 years old. Shame a company 25 years ago managed to retain all accessories with their twin low mount kit then another company 10ish years ago but now days...

    Interesting. Well the picture I posted, the twin version of that is basically what was on Mario Meza's car back in the early 1990s when it ran high 9s as a full on street car. Later Joe took it a lot faster with bigger turbos and better tuning options with newer technology. But I can't help...

    Here is a picture of a kit from MM&FF magazine article years ago. Not sure if they still are in business but this kit with minor change(I believe sold as an upgrade to existing owners) could become a twin kit. It works with all stock suspension and lets people retain all accessories(including...

    I have seen pictures of a fox body mustang with turbos in that general area before. That actually is roughly where I put the turbos on my old 928 that I used to have but on that car you did not have too many places to squeeze a pair of turbos into.

    I honestly don't know. Just know someone that ran into problems years back because of it. But it was in regards to the front frame rails position not more back like you are talking.

    Speaking of patents, there is one around mounting them down below the frame rails too.

    There have been plenty of twin turbo Fox body kits in the past that essentially allowed people to keep everything one wants on a street car under the hood. Almost all of them had the turbos mounted up top. I think most required the battery to be relocated to the back of the car. Most used T3...
  19. Turbo Fox with T5?

    Turbochargers
    Best time to upgrade is when the old parts still work and can be sold for something. If you can find a local person who knows how to pull the 3550 apart to inspect things then might be a good idea since will be out of a car.
  20. Turbo Fox with T5?

    Turbochargers
    A 3550 is much more than a slight upgrade over a T5. At this power level a 3550 would be fine for most non-gorilla drivers. The bigger question is can one even be found at a reasonable price and with a good idea it is in perfect working order since they'd probably be rather used by this point...
