Tubular K-Member!

Well, I looked over the net to see if I could see some members for our cars and came out with nothing. Now, I saw this member at ebay. I know it's from a mustang, but shouldn't be the same because we have same engine?

AJE is the only company that's made a tubular crossmember for our cars. There were some initial problems, but I think all is ironed out now.

k-member is $489 and the a arms are $449. in a previous thread someone said that you had to use custom coil overs with it but according to anthony jones over at ajr the stock struts and springs will work. so a little under a grand. i think this is gonna be my next buy, twin turbo here i come.

Twin turbo...Would you have turbo lag with that? Or would 3.73's take care of that? TT would be sweet!

Depends on the sizing of the turbos. If he's talking about a true twin turbo system (two turbos of the same "size") lag can be dealt with by (and I hate to use the word) tuning impeller and compressor specs. With sequential twins (one turbo smaller than the other) lag is already partially compensated for, the smaller of the two turbos spools and builds boost at lower RPMs. This is all pretty basic and accurate to my admitedly basic understanding of turbo systems.

Anyway.. another way to help negate lag in a turbo setup is with a looser (higher "stall") torque converter. That should be pretty obvious. The gears will help the engine gain RPMs faster (remember, that's the true benefit of gears. Torque multiplication down low and alowing the engine to spin into its power band quicker) and this allows the turbos to build boost "quicker." Boost should still come in at the same RPM range (again, if I understand the way they work correctly) you'll just hit that RPM range quicker.
