Anyone else seen these turbo kits on http://www.turbochargedpower.com


Anyone put one on their swapped 5.0 HO tbird/cougar?
They don't make anything for an MN12. A couple years ago I placed a $3,500 deposit on a custom kit for my 93 SC with a 5.0 based motor swap. After waiting more than 7 months after they were to supposed to have started the job, I got my money back and took the car to another shop, where I also got screwed.

One of the SC guys (Frank B. aka dirtybird) had his car at their shop for over a year and they never even started the job.

Any reason why? Seems odd to me... a t-bird/cougar with a 5.0 seems like it would be a walk in the park for them... what's the deal?

(maybe I ought to open my own shop)

I'm guessing it was because of all the Mustang business they already had. They also released a kit for a Corvette about the same time.

Yep... I suppose t-birds/cougars would be a low return for the time invested... mustangs and corvettes on the other hand... everybody has one :rolleyes: !

(I'm surprised they don't give them away in cereal boxes and with happy meals :mad: )

my estimate.... $3000 - 7000... for low boost... perhaps a bigger fuel pump and injectors... good headgaskets...

Check out Davids car, his is an '88 Cougar with twin turbors that he fabbed himself on a tight budget. He runs Cougarnuts.com and has some information and pictures on the whole process.
