454Deuce does have a point, if you want to use an intercooler, do go with a fuel injected blowthrough system. Other wise, go with a drawthrough system with a carb.

Hey guys, I'm new here but I thought I would add my .02 cents worth to this older subject.

I have successfully built a twin turbo 5.0 mustang using T-Bird turbos from junk yards and a blowthrough type setup on a Holley 600 double pumper carb. I also have a ford powerstroke intercooler. It all works great. I have since sold parts of that and made it a single turbo setup now to try something different. So far I have a best of a 10.70 1/4 mile pass in it!

take a look at my web page I built for the car here
<a href="http://turbostang.tripod.com" target="_blank">Todd's Turbo Mustang Site</a>
If you can get on it - seems that I get a ton of people looking at it and it is shut down sometimes bacause of excessive traffic.

im sure you all know what a brain trust i am on turbos. i had no idea that turbos were interchangable, i.e. made by a turbo mfg. rather than ford, g.m., etc, much like rear ends. i should have known had i thought about it but...never did - figured making the flanges, (adapters) would be too hard, and home made exhuast or what?. wild, gonna have to check into this as far as my 326 pontiac is concerned. 454duece check your email

For the love of god - NO DRAW THRU!!! Keep the carb in the stock location- it will be much easier to do, start, and run better. Think of all the homade exhaust manifolds, exhaust, intake pipe before turbo, and intake plumbing into manifold(yeah its long ways to the combustion chamber after the carb-plenty of time for the fuel to "fall" back out of the mix). Stick with a carb its not that hard to perpare for boost and you can boost reference the mechanical pump and add an electric pump to come on to help feed manual with high boost via a pressure switch. Or just use a straight high pressure pump with a boost referenced regulator. As far as turbos to use, the garret ones off a powerstroke look like pretty nice units and are fairly common.

since the fast and the furious movie came out here there are a lot of blown eclipse cars with turbos, check your local little euro shops, you might have luck finding one there cheap for they have to pay there dad back for blowing up there dads car. Just a thought 6-71sbc
