Lightbulb 4.6L Turbo V8

It's my birds 180,000 mile birthday. She is getting old, and is becoming a vegitable.
I would thank it would be fun for me, thunderbird, and everyone if I was to take my freinds MX6 turbo and rig every thing up for a few moments of fun. I may even pull the waste gate for ultra fun. Its sad really.

-Should I do this?
-Would it be crazy fast?
-Would there be fuel system problems?
-How long would she last?

Thanks for handleing my insanity

Modifications....

-air silencer removed
-3.25 pipe from filter to throttle body
-cone filter
-flowmaster muffler in for resonator
-3 inch exaust past muffler

My car is starting to crap out on me as well.... About 145,000 or so on the clock.... And I'm at the same crossroads you are at.... Except I'm doing one of two things.... In the next few months... ( 2-5 ) before christmas anyhow..... I'll be getting a new car.... and THen I have to decide what to do with the bird... I'll either fix it up nice like its supposed to be or I'm scrapping the parts off of it and dropping in something totally off the wall (track whore)

So I say give it a shot and tell us how good it works... heck I may decide to make a turbo'd 5-speed tbird...wouldn't that be pretty neat...

In fact later today the Cobra 5-stars are comming off... And I'm putting the OEM rims back on with some new tires.... Hopefully I can keep the car together long enough to get another ride in the works heheh....

Lots of Stuff, but the important one is a "5-speed" 4.6L V8 (for sale)
