    Here is what I'm starting with.

    I bought it with the motor fresh and am going to use it until I get the cash for an r302 block.

    its a 306 with eagle I beam rods, TRW forged pistons, and WW sr. heads milled with some mild porting....not my choice of motor to run, but it came with the car and it is fresh.

    This is going to be a little tough and frustrating since I'm relatively new to boost (but not fabrication), and the motor is going to have full accesories (p/s, alt, HUGE factory a/c compressor), there isn't much room in the engine bay, and I'm not going to cut any of the metal since the car is rust free and I want to keep all the origional metal intact.

    Plan on going with a garrett GT42 or a turbonetics T76 with efi. Everything will be custom and fabricated by me including everything from the headers, piping, brackets, etc.

    going for ~500rwhp with this block, then hopefully around 1000rwhp with the new r302 block

    You won't be able to keep those tiny tires stuck to the ground :naughty:













    Seriously though, how are you going to be able to transfer that power?

    i'm going to stiffen the hell out of the chassi and various suspension modifications to help with weight transfer when launching. I want to make sure that anything I do will be reversible incase I want to bring it back to original one day. I have every original part bagged, with all the tags, etc. I should be able to fit a 275/45/17 drag radial on there.

    most older mustangs usually stay around the 300-600hp range. The cars that usually run more then that are trailer queens. How awesome would a streetable 100hp be :big grin:

    And I've decided to run the Precision PT-76 GTS turbo because it uses the smaller t4 flange and has similar internals as the larger t76 and GT42 turbo's

    I went to highschool with the kid who built the motor and he was retarded. I pulled the motor, changed and redid a lot of stuff.

    Dual quads would work though. They are both vacum secondary 500cfm carbs. With the progressive linkage you're running both the primaries on the carbs to behave like a single double pumper, and rely on the vacuum of the motor to open up the secondaries on the carbs when more fuel is needed.

    I'm interested in your idea's on how to route the piping. There just isn't much clearance between the heads and shock towers :wtc:


    what else do you have planned?

    500 is definately doable as long as that is one powerful turbo set up
