    Anyone on this forum have a single or twin turbo set up? preferably on the six of course but any engine applys. Just wondering cuz i dont know too many ppl with turbo stangs and i want to strap one on my car if i dont do a motor swap.

    gotta love turbo but wouldnt that pose a super bad headgasket risk with the 3.8?

    not necessarily. high boost yes, but ive been reading more into turbo v6's and they seem to do fine around 4-6 psi. thats not much for a big built v8 i know but it produces a pretty signifcant bjump in hp & tq. ive heard somewhere around 275hp. thats just a bit over stock gt power, but its a nice leap from our little 145 flywheel power.

    yeah I still think it would cheaper to throw in a 5.0 or 4.6 PI motor?

    yeah, ultimately thats what ill end up doing. most likely a 99+ GT motor i can find cheap w/ low miles then just mod that. the 3.8 can make a lot of power. but its too damn expensive. funny, the only one responding in the v6 turbo post is a 5.0 v8 guy haha. thanks for the support matt lol.

    I've got a couple turbos.

    Twin 16 g's to be precise.


    Dont go v8, stick with the v6 it'll take care of you.

    Oh, and the only headgasket issue these cars have is in 94/95, 96-98's hold up fine.
