Yeah it may look a little hacked, spray paint it black, whos gonna get under your truck to look at your turbo?

Functionality over looks IMO. But, there isnt much money to be saved, getting pipe bent is cheap enough you shouldnt have to use PVC. lol

Full spool around 3k? That'll be a nice place to get a kick in the pants. Can't beat the low end of a V8 with the boost later in the powerband.

Make sure you seal that thing up good, deep muddin' might make for a bad situation if you don't :-P That and no one likes boost leaks.

Should run a snorkel right up the back of the cab. That'd be sweet.

I hear you, I'd do it.

Theres a sick little Miata running around down here that's boosted and he has all PVC before the intercooler. Running lotsa boost too.

Sick little car to slide around.

As soon as I get out of class and get a computer with speakers I'll give it a listen. Pretty stoked to hear it. I wished I could boost mine.

Not even considering it given the fact mines a DD, and I'm carb'd, I hate dealing with carbs and boost.

Think about the lag if you did that.

Make it wide open, make it sound like a diesel spooling. Everybody would be like waaaa a 302 Ranger, wait, a boosted 302 Ranger!?

Think about the looks on peoples faces.

an intercooler isnt really needed with a remote mount turbo like that. by the time the air gets to the motor it will be cool enough and that motor should be good for 8-10lbs of boost as long as the fuel and timing are corrected. Id recommend bigger injectors and a boost refrenced fuel pressure regulator. timing is gonna be more difficult with the stock distributor but msd makes a boost control ignition box that is boost refrenced and it will automatically retard the timing under boost. as far as tubing to do all your plumming go to www.cxracing.com they will have everything u need there as far as pipe bends and couplers. Or maybe check out www.turbostang.com they have all kinds of info on turbo ford stuff. i built a twin turbo 93 stang with a 347 gt 40 heads and 10lbs of boost it runs 10.65 at 140mph. if u got anymore questions let me know. good luck

If you have any questions just ask me, I have been learning turbo stuff, for past couple years. So far, I have installed a twin turbo kit on a 90 mustang coupe, and right now installing a single turbo kit on a friends 08 gt and 2003 hemi ram is next. And my personal build is a 90 ranger with a 95 351 windsor and mpgt45 turbo blow thru on 10lbs most of the time.
