you can also use the starter from a 95' 5.0 on the 87-93
mustangs the starter is real small and comes in
handy if you have longtube headers.

Equal lengths might not fit correctly with the spark plugs when put upside down like that. Also, with twin turbos it's not really horrible to have unequal length shorties. In fact, my friend ran in the 11's with the Mustang I bought fairly recently and it has unequal length shorties...
Never said it was horrible, you'll just get more power & faster spool with equals. As for the fitment thing, I can't back up that, I've never tried to make a set fit.

When doing a twin turbo setup how is the exhaust run after the turbo's and intercooler are installed. Does anyone have a picture. I mean is the h-pipe still useable?
You'll have to make the pipes custom, or have an exhaust shop do it for you. You can have them use the H or you can make a new one.

Ok, wait, you're telling me that there is a way to 'build' a twin turbo set-up using thunderbird turbo coupe parts?! If this is correct. I need more info. Because, I would love to start doing some mods like that to my basically stock stang but wouldn't even know where to begin. I mean, I know how it works but don't you have to have a custom made header that is specifically designed for that kind of a bolt on? And what about the intake? And who makes these parts... I think you're getting way to over the top with this being a 'junkyard' parts pull.
Well, if you get the parts from the salvage yard & the prices are like they are around here, you could have a complete twin turbo kit for a 5.0 for around $700. So making something that goes for $7000 with $700 using junkyard parts isn't considered the junk yard route?

I don't know how much help this would be but this guy on here made his own TT setup with a set of turbos he bought from a junkyard for 60 bucks or whatever. I doesn't explain it that much but you could probably get ahold of him or atleast look at how he did it from the pictures.

if you go down some he also has a short video, its in red.

Hey, that's a great little site for that set-up! His welds need some work but hey, pretty don't mean fast. The fastest cars at the track are 19 different shades of primer. Now, along this article that you've found, what is the likleyhood that you could find 2 different turbos with the same boost, but facing different directions so it would look store or factory bought. That would be nice. I like what I am seeing with this junkyard thread. I have been on the lookout for some gt40 heads and a better intake everyday. Not too much of a choice here. But, nonetheless, alot of tips are coming in handy of of this site.

MORE TWIN TURBO JUNKYARD INFO PLEASE!!!!

You use a manual boost controller to set the boost pressure at the same levels. One can be made for $10-15 with parts from home depot.
To synchronize the wastegates you test the actuators with a vacuum/pressure hand pump. Hook up the pump to the actuator & make sure they both open to full open at the same pressure. Then make sure they both get the boost signal from the same vacuum line. Some people do trial & error runs which take quite a while & aren't accurate.

Those pages tell you everything you need to know to get the project done.

Um, start a thread dude, this thread is a sticky for people to post suggestions for parts you can find in a junkyard to upgrade your mustang.

I'll answer your question once you start a new thread, I don't want to fill this one up with random questions and answers, no offense. :-)

I think you're getting way to over the top with this being a 'junkyard' parts pull. The GT40 heads. It would be nice to have a list of what cars this option came on and with the added HP what needs to be done to the EECIV? And you mentioned the 98 Explorer has the same or equivilent as the cobra upper and lower intake? My car doesn't even lay scratch! It has a hard time break free in the rain! I still have ALL of my smog, A/C, and every restrictive thing on my car but I have started doing minor mods and have lost low end torque like a ****. So, if we're going to start talking 'junkyard' lets at least stay in the realm of what is considered 'junkyard'.
The GT40 head is a good idea but for a 87-93 LX what heads will be a 'direct' bolt-on, and what heads will need mods?
Next, the T-5. I have a stock AOD and would like to actually convert to a 5 or 6 speed. Are 6 speed trannys even an option for me? Are the 87 and above T-5's on 4 bangers worth getting and building up to match the performance of an aftermarket transmission? And did they improve the quality of the 4 cyl. T-5's like they did with the T-5's from a 5.0?
I just bought a complete rear wheel disc brake conversion (4 lug) axles, new rotors, dust shields, calipers, new pads, e-brake cable, and all necessary mounting hardware off of ebay for $398, and that's with shipping. Did I get took? I read on this thread that Jeg's has them for about 400 all brand parts. The ones I was looking at though to retain 4 bolt pattern were much more than that. Did I read wrong? And are C-clip eliminators worth it while I'm doing the gears and rear brake conversion?
Thank you. j.


not kicking on ya, but a frien of mine completely hand fabed a tt setup on a 90 gt, and kept the ac, i will talk to him to see if that guy still has it, last i heard he was selling the whole stang with a spare crate motor built for the tt for $3500

OMFG I love you all so much I'm going to tell you this. I heard 2 days ago from my neighbors friend of a way to clean out my radiator to get it just like new on the inside. So I tried it & It cleaned EVERYTHING out of it including the dirty air. [8D] He told me not to tell anyone though. So this is top secret. No I'm serious he really did tell me not to tell anyone. [:-]

To clean your radiator out completely, disconnect the hoses & take the radiator out. Lay it flat with the hose parts sticking up & pour 2-3 gallons of distilled vinegar (it's around $2 from walmart) into it & let it sit for 24 hours. Take the garden hose & spray it out good, then put it back in, bolt it up, reattach the hoses, & fill her up. Good as new. (on the inside at least) [sm=smiley20.gif]
You can do this with the radiator in the car by corking the bottom hole & pouring it in all the way to the top & letting it sit, but I would strongly not recommend doing it as you might get vinegar in your engine & that is a very very bad thing.

Keep the tips coming guys(& girls)!!!
