I just got a 1987 Cougar with a 2.3 Turbo 5 speed swap!
The car is beautiful! mint! other than a scuff on the back bumper and a chip in the front. no rust anywhere, but it has a cracked windshield. 54XXX miles on the turbo motor. I LOVE IT!!!!
so anyway, i am new to the turbo clan... was thinking about doing the SC throttle body swap (do i need to bump up fuel pressure with the bigger t-body?) needs an 8.8 rear end, sub frame connectors, bigger intercooler.. just little things. it has a t3 turbo, and i got basically everything i need to build a second car with it. i got a 2.3 turbo motor with the IHI turbo, t5 tranny, clutch and flywheel, driveshaft, all the sensors i'll ever need, and a stock t-body.
there will be some pics posted!
