I can't even remember the last time I posted, but I've done a fair amount to my Turbo Coupe. I just installed Corbeau FX1 racing seats and have some ROH Snypers ready to go in. Whatcha think???

The video is me racing my brother in his 1990 Mustang LX 5.0. I ran a 15.34 that pass, my best for that day was 15.14 on 10 year old hard street tires.

Nice car. This summer I'll be looking for one. I found one a few years ago, just like this one, but with automatic (better for keeping boost, and full boost off the line, etc...) for 400 bucks at a used car dealership in Council Bluffs, but the damn wholesale dealer already bought it before I had a chance at it. Wholesalers are EVIL!!!!!! (sorry, if you happen to be one)

Turbo Coupe

You definately have a nice Turbo Coupe there. Always have my eye out for a clean one. Not so easy to find.

Keep up the good work.

Just got my parts back from the powder coater. Had him do them in this lovely candy red with chrome basecoat. Also, a shot of my custom HD motor mounts by Chuck W.

Same thing happened to me when I was looking for a new car last Nov. Just happened to see a VERY slick black 87-88 Turbo coupe 5-speed in the back of a big dealer. I stopped, looked it over, and went into the office to ask about it. The dealer had sold it (and all of his other "old" trade-ins) to a wholesaler. Didn't even remember how much he got for it, or the name of the dealer. I just smiled and said that however much it was, I probaby would have paid more.

That is a nice TurboCoupe you've got there. Very slick.

Update!

I just got a NOS intercooler for an Isuzu NPR diesel truck. The core is about 15" X 20", so its pretty good sized. I just need to get a ranger radiator (Becool 60161) and I'll be set to go. I also just received my GIANT Forge blowoff valve. This thing is massive, has a ratcheting knob up top to adjust for boost level and a vacuum port that swivels 360*.

I also got my Corbeau seat brackets, so the racing seats are going in today, and I will be putting the rims on, can't wait to see how she sits now!!!

More parts in...

ROH Snypers, Mickey Thompson Drag Radials (275/40/17), Corbeau FX1 seats. This weekend I am installing my custom high-performance motor mounts, tranny mount and crossmember bushings, as well as my powdercoated valve cover and intake manifolds, oh, and the electric fuel pressure gauge. Enjoy ;)

It brings back some old memories, a girl I dated in HS had one and I drove it all the time.
