turbo stang


I am attempting to compile enough information in both describing in writing and showing pictures that I hope to take away some of the mystery of adding turbos to your engine.

This is the car that I used when I was learning the ins and outs of turbocharging. It is a 1986 Mustang Coupe that the previous owner had converted from the factory Electronic Fuel Injection to a Carburetor setup. The engine has an all factory bottom end and factory heads with very mild port work done to the exhaust ports only. I basically removed the EGR "humps" that catch some of the exhaust and route it back thorugh the EGR. The rearend is also factory except for the 3.27:1 ring and pinion gears.

When I first assembled this site I wanted to help people out there that were interested in doing this on their own to skip over some of the problems and annoyances I ran into when I originally got started. Back when I started this, there was not much information at all on the internet about building a custom home made turbocharger system.

Since I brought this site back to life, I noticed that people are still coming and looking at it, so I am updating it again to expand it with more content and information.

Since I built this car I have also worked at Powerhouse Racing and I have even gone to a NOPI race at Ennis. Now that was a shock - there were more girls running around in bikinis there than there were cars racing. lol ... But what I have found out is that the basics of turbocharging an engine are the same no matter if you are building a mustang or a Camaro, Corvette, Supra, Lexus, Honda, Mitsubishi, Nissan, etc... They all work exactly the same way. So if you are not a mustang fan or you are not building one, its ok. You might still be able to pick up some pointers here so have a look around and check out the place.

Thanks for stopping by. Take a look around and if there is something you would like for me to add or if you have any questions that are not covered on the site, please drop me an email at
