Turbo Question..

I am thinking about getting the 99-04 5 speed single turbo kit off turbomustangs.com. I have a 2003 Mustang GT, its all stock as far as performance goes and i was wondering if i was to get the turbo kit if i would need to get different pistons and a whole bunch of other stuff. Or do u bolt on the kit and go? Any input is greatly appreciated. Thanx in advance.

You would need forged rods, pistons and crank and a set of heads and cams would be nice... as for turbo I'd go with a twin setup and this is what I'd get http://dagostinoracing.com/index.php...f14950d7770964

I heard that for a V8, the twin turbo is muuuuch more efficient since the exhaust is split, 4 cylinders into one manifold and 4 cylinders into the other, you need two turbos to get the full boost. Single turbo you'll only get half of what you could get. I dunno if you already knew that. Just trying to help. Being active. lol

dont listen to anything either one of them said. you can make just as much power with a single turbo as your can with a twin turbos. that thing he said about not getting full boost is just wrong, you will not get full boost as early but you will still get full boost. when i was looking into turbos i found with the the hp twins id be at full boost at around 3300 rpms and with a big single t-76 turbo, id be at full boost around 4000 rpms.

as for needing new rods and pistons, it is not mandatory yet. your not going to be able to take advantage of what the turbo is going to do for you over what a supercharger will do becasue you wont be able to run the turbos to their full potential. stock shortblocks are okay for a little boost but once you get up over 400 rwhp, your really putting some pressure on the rods and pistons and they will eventually give out. now if you keep things tame and keep the boost down low and have a good tune, youll be allright for a long time. thats why i woudl suggest a supercharger for your application becuase the turbos are much more expenive, nd youll never be able to tkae advantage of having them without a built short block.

if you were to rebuild, your going to need forged h-beam rods, and forged pistons that have a big dish in them to lower the compression. with boost you want your compression to be anywhere from 8.0:1-9.5:1 but the lower the better for a lot of boost.

also think about having your heads ported, and getting some blower or some turbo cams

well theyll be good for a little bit but if you get greedy with it. i sitll think unless you planning on building the bottom end is to just throw on a supercharger and call it a day, theres more o it than just bolting on and going. there are a lot of little things you need to worry about, like fuel issues and you will have fuel issues cuz the stock stuff isnt gonna support a ton of power. there are a little things that will pop up that will get you. the bottem end can hold about a 400-450 hp but when you get around there, its not gonna last for ever

You will need higher pressure injectors, svt focus fuel pump, probably a tubular k member. It depends on the kit. Do your research. You should stick with about 6-9 psi if you want your motor to last. That will put you pretty close to 400 hp if you get a good tune.
