Well.. I have a thread for red car.. so I decided I should open one up for green car. Green car I bought some 12 years ago, bone stock with 22k miles on it out of Ohio.

The car evolved as most cars do and here we are today. Car blew a head gasket so the engine was pulled and now im in the process of reassembly. This car has been a basket case ever since going turbo 8 years ago.

Anyway. Here's some progress. New Ford oem gaskets on my freshly decked heads. Reinstalled the turbo cams

Even though I'm excited to get it back together, it almost pains me having to put this turbo kit back on again since I no longer race the car. Had the kit up for sale or trade 4 months and didn't get much attention for it. 1 person offered a ported cobra tork tek kit and one person I tried working out a deal for had a vortech v2 TI trim, but that one fell through. Anyway. Here's the mod list on the car

Yes they’re not small by any means . The last fox lake p51 intake I seen was on here too . Probably over 10 years ago was a white and in poor shape but had a blower

Thinking about recoating or painting mine a different color scheme. Not super happy with the gloss black. I painted my timing cover and valve covers gold last time I had the engine out. So if I redo it.. nows the time. Just don't know what color if I am to change it up

Would solve all of your back pressure issues and make your car wayyy faster. But your compression will seriously limit your boost levels unless you're on E85 and squirting some straight methy meth.
