Great Site, Hello!

Hi, read about the forum in car craft and was as super-impressed with the site!! had to join and read up. I like old and new American cars but I like different, innovative and simply odd-ball cars the best. I also work at an American spark plug manufacturing/research facility (Autolite, Fostoria Ohio) and know some about spark plug application.

I have a different kind of car, but I made it into something I like. and it's fast too. I am into forced induction and EFI and applied that well to my first serious project car.





I am looking at possibly getting a new project and putting the above car into storage. Too much into it emotionally to sell it. Look forward to reading and posting!! - Corey

Welcome to the site ripple. The underside of your ride looks very interesting. How about describing and explaining what we see there.

interesting, yes. that mess constitutes a low-mounted T60-1 turbocharger and all the supporting equipment. the pipes are stainless and I made most all of that myself. Almost all the parts for the car where purchased over the internet. what you see there is the wastegate bypass, tail-pipe, 3 O2 sensors, oil scavenge tanks and it's return pump, water cooling lines and lots of New York rust.

the car is a Ford Taurus (I did say it was different) with a quad-cam 192 Cube V-6 and a 4 speed automatic. Right now it makes 10 PSI and is wicked-fun to drive. Before winter, I will strap it down to the rollers and get some TQ/hp numbers

here is a cleaner shot of the engine bay.
