I wish this TMA kit could fit.

Check out the pictures on the link

After viewing this website and looking at the layout of the turbo kit, I now have some ideas floating around in my head. What do you all think?

I think you should consider using a SC short block or beef up your NA 3.8 if you want a high power turbo.

you dont need to get a new shortblock to get a turbo...just a safe tune and reasonable boost.

TMA isnt making any Mustang kits anymore...last I heard hes going on with school and a viper turbo kit...

Yep Andy has stopped making Mustang turbo kits...for now anyway, who knows. He once said he was going to stop making them and ended making more than he had previously. His later versions of kits made some NICE power, most of them being on STOCK shortblock, making anywhere from 350-475rwhp depending on boost and turbo selection.

But buying one of those would be as useful as buying a kit for a camaro, nothing would work but the turbo, wastegate, BOV, etc.

you would have to build a custom hot side and cold side. If you ever get a chance try flipping the stock headers around and checking the clearances. Ive never took a reaallly good look at the 3.8 setup.

I supercoupe guy actually had luck flipping his stock manifolds, when converting to a turbo. I couldn't believe it worked, but it clears perfectly.
