Looks good, but please tell me you're not going to use a stock 3.8 (non-SC) bottom end.

By the looks of it, that car started as an SC already.

Yup, different radiator and space for the intercooler, as well as the ARC. I should pay closer attention.

The thread has long since disappeared, but tt281 has been "turbo charging" that cougar for well over two years. First two in the trunk (basically a series of videos showing how awesome the turbo sound spooling up with just the hot side connected), then two in front (fail), then a humorously unimpressive video showing him running around his neighborhood running one turbo, then he wants to put four turbos on it, but now he is building a single turbo set up and somewhere along the line to show off his amazing turbo charging ability he put one on his daily driver exploder. He takes any kind of constructive criticism as a personal insult to his vast turbo-knowledge and retorts with a snippy comment about some turbo forum told him so and now the only people who go visit his thread are there to flame on him or are newbs and think he is amazing

Looks like you are making good progress. Are you going to be using a dual inlet single outlet intercooler ?
