soo a whileeee back i posted in here asking if my little 93 duster v6 could run with my friends 95 v6 stang. i was told i wouldnt stand a chance.... well i walked him and eventually i learned that v6 mustangs were slow and that it was nothing to be happy about. But it did get me into my car more, eventually i got the urge to turbocharge it and hopefully run with the "fast cars" with my pos 90s car.
I started with the little things, supporting mods.
- 3inch magnaflow exhaust
- ported intake plenum
- 52mm throttle body from junkyard van (proven 5-8hp, straight from the junkyard
- custom intake plenum spacers
- ac delete
- msd coil
- walbro 255
- 36# injectors
you know, the little things.
Then i worked toward getting the car to at least handle decently without spending much cash. I got ahold of some new struts and shocks along with some shelby coil springs. Paired that with a 1g neon strut tower bar and welding (boxing) in my track bar and solid motor mounts. This new setup handled well compared to stock.
I then got ahold of kmperformance and had my turbo manifold fabbed up. Once that was delivered i orderd a cheep cx racing turbo. this turbo was run by a fellow member from the forums i was on and he had success.. so i took a gamble and it worked out
I also got a fmic and 3inch piping.. 2.5 would have been fine but 3inch was a few bucks more and it works, so who cares.
The car is tuned by me with megasquirt II. i dont have cash to hit the dyno and get something perfect. around town cruising is easy to dial in but WOT tuning is somewhat tricking to find a good spot to go blasting in 3rd gear. 8psi made 300whp on kmperformance's car but they had ported heads and i do not. I am currently running 10psi and have room to grow. the weak link on these motors is the ring gaps. from the factory they are very small and tend to butt against each other at high cyl. pressure and ruin pistons. With regapped rings and e85, 500hp is not out the question with the proper turbo and injectors.
