the oil feed was heated up and bent to clear the large turbo. it had a kinled line so we threw that away.

Image

for some reason the turbo was missing all of its brackets, so we rounded up a few spares and threw them on the car. the weight of teh turbo bouncing around on the exhaust is a bad idea. might lead to a cracked header or uppipe.

Update! The car was having fueling issues when the motor went. After turbo Time rebuilt it i put it on the dyno and found a faulty walbro 255 FP. Swapped for another pump set a dyno appointment and the customer traded the car in on a new pickup.

Another local fatalville custome rbought the car for 16k, Brought it in so i could finish the tune the car made 400whp on a mustang dyno.
I have since then added an alky system just to keep it running smooth, but he wants to upgrade to a rotated 35r kit now. looking for 500+ as a testement to turbotime kickass engine buildign I have no doubts i will go well beyond 500whp
