wow, small world. yea mine is a DD too, but i only drive it 3 miles away to work. i am also going to get mine painted as well. I am thinking gloss black with ghost stripes. also converting it to 5 wheel lug and chrome cobra r rims. i really want to do the explorer gt 40 intake and heads as well. let me know how that works out. thanks again for the help and maybe when i get home we can meet up and check out the cars. thanks klint
No problem BTW glad I could help I had researched it a while back. I'm here in Columbia SC. You got more guts than I do with that rear end. I thought about it but since mine is my DD I decided I would get some help when I do it. Right now I am saving up for my paint. In the mean time I will be installing an Explorer/GT-40 intake. Figured I would upgrade since my valve cover gaskets are leaking some. All my family is in CO. Denver, Ft Collins, Westminister, all over. Hope you like it :-)
wouldnt a four cylinder thats turbo charged get better gas milage than a turbo 8 cylinder anyway? i know no matter which one i do its going to be a gas guzzler only for the fact that i have a lead foot. i just thought that a super charger would be easier to deal with.
i dont have a mustang yet im looking for a 93 or 89 hatch but my dad has an 87 thunderbird and its a 4 cylinder turbo with around 350 hp and it gets 32 mpg. so yeah it does make a difference because it's powered only by the exhaust instead of having to hook the supercharger up to the engine.
