    here is what I am working on so far. Running twin super 60 T3's from Buick Grand National's. staying at about 7-8psi in fear of splitting my block. I tune friday and will have more pics and dyno results added to my thread by the weekend.

    Here is my progress so far:

    Wow, I'm doing a similar project!

    I have a 90LX that is completely striped down and is on a rotisserie. I have reinforced everything on it so it won't twist into a pretzel when I drop the hammer!!! I have a brand new ITS Twin Turbo kit to be installed. Like you I'm going to be running it on a stock block so splitting it is a possibility. I'm nowhere near as complete as you, mine is still just a pile of parts spread everywhere. I'll be interested to see what numbers you put down. Keep us updated. Are you on any other Mustang boards?

    Chad, what is the cost of a JYTT project like yours?

    hmm. havent really thought about it yet. just throwing money here and tthere as needed.

    i probably have about $200 into it. some of the main components i bought:
    turbos (2) @ $170 ea
    Intercooler @ $275
    wideband @ $250
    boost gauge @ $50
    42lb injectors $150, but i sold my 30's for 150
    MAF was $225 but i sold my old one for $135
    got lower intake mani ported for $100
    air fileters $25 ea
    and i probably have about $150 in tubing
    and another $100 in clams and silicone couplers.

    there are other things such as the fuel and oil return lines, oil filter relocation
    kit and in my case a oil pump for the oil return. most JY tt setups run the turbos high and up front, i chose mine to be low to make the "sleeper" effect and keep them cooler.

    a true junkyard setup could def be done alot cheaper though. check out www.turbomustangs.com for more ideas if you are thinking of building one
