      5 Top Rated Questions

      Boost How much would I be able to safely push through a gt40x crate engine? I believe it's a boss block with all forged internals. What cam do you recommend with this kit and what size fuel injectors and pump. How easy would you say it is for someone who has never installed a turbo? I am highly considering this kit in a few months. Thank you for your time.

      • First you need to be sure of what you already have. I would call whomever sold you the engine and find out exactly what is indeed inside as far as the rotating assembly and block, etc.. If you can get that information then your next question is going to be, how do you intend to use the engine. Are you going to use it as a daily driver or a daily driver and weekend warrior at the drag strips or just as a racing engine for drag racing or autocross, etc.? It sounds to me like you might have a motor from Ford Motorsports that usually comes with a pick of 1-5 different camshafts that Ford recommends to be used with that motor and heads and depending on what it's going to be used for there are 5 cam selections unless you go with a different Camshaft Company. Those cams from Ford are designed to work with a crate 302+ c.i. engine with the GT40x heads are listed on Ford Motorsports, and in Summit Racing's catalog in the back in the Mustang section, plus on their site but, can be purchased through American Muscle with a part number for a very competitive price, if not cheaper. They are commonly called either the B303, E303, F303, X303, and Z303 camshafts. I know that the B303 is said to work well with boost says Ford but again it all comes down to what your trying to accomplish here. As far as fuel pumps go you can't go wrong with the 255LPH size if your running a stock fuel tank that should feed your motor with plenty of fuel even with the Turbo added now or later and a fuel injector size of at least 36 lb./hr. to a 48 lb./hr.+ injector with fuel rails should work with your motor and the turbo. After you get all of your info on the parts you have and take the car to a tuner if their a reputable one then they should know how much psi/boost you can run safely with what ever type of fuel you will be running. Lastly a Turbo kit isn't for the average gear head to install, they are very complex systems and just one error and you will blow that motor apart, and check with American Muscle to see what is included in the Turbo Kit because it may have injectors and a fuel pump in it already. Good luck with your project!

      Can stock T5 transmission handle the 350hp expected from this turbo kit?

      • It will for now. The real question is how long can a stock t5 handle this power

      I have a 1986 mustang, would this turbo kit work even thought it says 87-93? I still have a 5.0L

      • This kit is only designed to work on the 87-93 Mustangs and would most likely require modification to work on the 79-86 Mustangs.

Some of my friends said I will have to replace and upgrade a ton of things, and others say I might be able to go without upgrade's if I'm smart. I'm not super car smart, but I want to learn more. Basically short question made long now made short, what do I need to do to run this on my Stang? 1 answer
