It doesn't take a techie, just a curious mind. It is easy to assemble (One guy compared it to assembling legos) & tune one, just time consuming. If you've read the material that is readily available,...

I went from 4.10's to 2.73's in my turbo 5.0... :icon_warped: I honestly prefer the 2.73 & -20rpm @ 70mph.

I've built and installed them in several cars. I currently have 2 MSII's on my cars, one waiting to go on my bike (if I ever get to that project) & just finished an MS1 v 2.2 for a twin turbo 5.0 I...

Thumbs up How to: DIY power steering pump relocate.

I've never built one this way or seen it done this way so I figured I would post some pictures for those interested before the engine is gone. The object here was to cut cost as much as possible by...

I'm going to assume you're aiming for 650, not 650+. I would just swap some cheap forged rods & hypereutectic pistons in & keep the stock displacement. The stock truck rods will hold it, but I would...

You can run it with low boost on the stock shortblock without any issues. I wouldn't advise searching for 400+ hp numbers & expect it to stay reliable for long. I agree with luckythirteen13 on the...

I don't know if it will help or not, but I'm running non P headers with P heads. They're shorties, but it may be the same issue if you run longer ones. I just had to use 90 degree boot plug wires.

Just stay out of boost until you get a feel for tuning it or can get it somewhere. Car's are very forgiving with horrible tunes at low-moderate load. I wouldn't advise against running the spring you...

There is nothing wrong with running multiple. Many people have done it and preferred it to using one large pump, mostly due to running it when the tank is low and it being quieter. My two 255's cost...

I build my own with an ebay master/slave cylinder & some braided brake line for about $70. It's a lot easier, but unless you can fabricate the parts, I would go with what's already out there. I...

Install the 3.3 in the garbage.
2.3t or 5.0 would be my vote. http://www.mustang50magazine.com/techarticles/m5lp_0206_fox_mustang_v8_swap/viewall.html Read over that to get the idea.

Turbos are not free power. You have an impeller blocking your exhaust which causes a restriction & would definitely lower power output if the compressor were not hooked up. You don't see that power...

First off I would advise wiring the MSII to the car if you or your friend can do it; one because of the poor power & ground, two to cut out the clutter. The 5.0's I've done have all been cut down to...

Every supercharger will rob power from the engine. Turbos do as well. Superchargers do exactly what they're supposed to do & they do it well on any brand or cylinder engine. Turbos are more efficient...

It's very doable and can be done very cheap (without modifying the supercharger) if you're good at fabricating. If it's a stock or near stock 5.0, I would look at an m90 instead of the m112. You...

It's not too big, but going with a bigger unit & turning it slower will result in an efficiency loss & more leakage around the lobes of the supercharger so your low end will suffer. Eaton started...

Yes. I've done it a few times with centrifugals & roots types. The latest project is mounting two m-62's from a GM on a H/C/I 5.0 (still quite a ways from being done though)
