ditch those ****ty hose clamps..they're good for nothing. head down to your local truck and diesel shop and upgrade to some decent T-bolt clamps..much better. how was the angle on your oil drain on the turbo to oil pan?

It really costs 3gs? I saw a kit on eBay for $400. I know it will be a crappy turbo but you will at least have all the piping and lines.

I doubt it. But BB Garrett turbos are really expensive...so....

Also, to the OP, your oil problem was probably due to the fact that the angle of oil drain nearly horizontal....you want it as close to vertical as you can (rule of thumb: +/-30degrees is acceptable).

So, whats the plan for anything in the future?...

Is there any prep for the motor that needs to be done? Like bore it out or different heads, injectors or throttle body or anything of the sort?

Running over 5PSI forged internals aren't a bad idea

He is saying forged internals (piston and rods). Not that stock cast-aluminum-hybrid crap that'll break under a little boost.

There are mustang sites that have the parts you need.

Don't forget a tune and injectors/pump at least.

Not sure if SOHC works in OHV like you have but lewk here: http://www.supersixmotorsports.com/

Read: Forged Internals (very strong) if you actually want to use a turbo on your rig.

Stock pistons and rods are hypereutectic (weak), and probably so are your oversized pistons.

Maybe? I'm not sure what their 4.0 OHV selection is (the motor you have). THey seem to do a lot of the 4.0 SOHC (motor in 01+)

What's the website that sells all the performance parts for 3.0s. Can't find the link...

@Hurley, even if OP was still updating his thread he was working on a 4.0 and the turbo was unsuccessful so I doubt he will be able to help you much.

Danger, what's wrong with a turbo 3.0? And I was wondering about the internals because it wasn't a very descriptive build.

master, I'm assuming you are being sarcastic, I didn't find any parts for a 3.0 I was just talkin in general. And even if his was unsuccessful he still has more experience with this type of build than I do.

What's the problem with trying to learn about this?!?!?!
