Good site for TC's

My really good friend Dave Compton has a really nice site with lots on info on Turbo Coupes, SVO's and Merkurs. I sold him my '85 TC 5-speed a few years ago and I'm about to buy it back. It now sports his own custom cam....'88 TC intercooler,'88 TC hood, K&N filter, rebuilt T3 turbo, Custom 3inch Down pipe to a custom 3inch single exhaust and a few other parts that should put this bird in the high 13's.(Maybe faster?) The site is WWW.DAVECOMPTON.COM
I was wondering....... How many of you TC owner's are running 13's? What did you do to get there? I plan on putting in 3:55-4:10 gears, chip or new EEC from a newer TC, performance clutch(centerforce, Zoom or ACT) 9mm wires, better spark plugs, advance the timing to 11-12 deg.(Think that's right, need to double check) add a boost controller so I can run 16psi(with 94 Octane) and then later on I plan on adding a t/4 hybrid turbo and an electric fan) What do you all think? Let me know what you all have done performance wise.....would really like to know what type of turbo other people are using. Thank's all!! Look's like I'll be back in the game.....have'nt had a bird in over 4 years =(

t-4 would be a good chice for performance. For the boost controller go to Ric Gillis at and crank it to 18#, its perfectly safe for the stock turbo. The best resource in my opinion for Turbo Coupes is at the North American Turbocoupe Org. at or Turbo Ford at Enjoy your TC.
