Default Mustang Single turbo build.

Started out with just a table full of goodies ive been collecting for awhile now.


Going under the trans to Y into a single 2.5 all the way to the turbo.


Put in a flexpipe coming off of the passenger side manifold.

Finished up to the y

From looking at some of the other builds and replys it seems that going through the a-arm is the easiest and best bet.


Hung the turbo in place to get an idea of its finally resting place and finish the up pipe.



Also put in another flex and had to weld on a bend to clear the stock fan with new larger 3cow radiator.

Again through the A-arms




3in Downpipe into 2.5in Y to fit all stock catbacks.

Thanks man i was just trying to build a simple and clean kit. Car used to be my DD but an incident with a nitrous explosion took out a couple pistons so decided to go ahead and build the motor for boost. A year after the motor i finally got around to making this turbo kit and now its just gonna be a weekend warrior.

Now time for the charge piping. Set up the intercooler first


Then could get the turn just right down to it.And also installed a 50mm BOV


Also got a new 44mm wastegate and dump tube to install now too.





Air and Fuel is kept right with a blow-thru protube and matched with a set of 60lb injectors.


Finally finished off with a single pipe to the TB/Plenum combo.

List of parts used for any future references.Hope to get some videos and #s up soon, is on 13lbs right now.

All hot side pipes are Mild steel and from Columbia River Mandrel Bending,never had any problems with them and will also make a package for you if you so need it.(also have all the order numbers if anyone was doing another mustang like this) @ Tube Bending & Fabrication - Columbia River Mandrel Bending

All charge piping and Intercooler are 3" kit from CXracing @ CXRacing

Exhaust wrap came off of an ebay store called Thermal Solutions and so far has been working great. @ eBay My World - thermalsolutions

The 50mm BOV, 44mm Wastegate and dump tube came from a local guy with the ebay store relentless_performance. Bov sounds awesome and been able to get into a few pulls with the car and the wastegate is right on point and for the price im extremely happy. @ eBay My World - relentless_performance
