Turbocoupe intercooler

I have an intercooler from a turbocoupe. I was wondering why it has vacuum connections on it and if they could be capped off. The flange has been modified for direct bolt up.

Thanks

Help with RS500 bumper fogs and indicators

I will be picking up a Cossy bumper some time this month. I have the Cossy headlights, wiring and brackets, but nothing for the fogs or indicators. Are there any cheap made-in-China or junkyard parts that might work as a temporary fit? Eventually I plan on getting some metal Cossy splitter inserts a...

Re: Gt350 2.3 turbo

Seems like the things making this special is the red stripe on the exterior, the badge on the interior, recaro seats, and the TRX wheels. Everything else was available a standard GT model. Ford got in trouble with that car because GT350 was still owned by Shelby and thus why the moniker did not con...

Gt350 2.3 turbo

I just got my hands on a 20th anniversary 1984 Mustang gt350 2.3 turbo, but haven't decided on what direction to take. I figured that I could go stock or set it up more like an SVO with some basic bolt ons. I already had an Xr4ti that I plan on tracking, so this this will be more for show. Seeing th...

Re: Issues after engine swap

Have you tried pulling ECU codes yet? Sorry that i didnt answer all the questions earlier, i was on my smart phone and didnt see them. I have yet to set the timing with a gun. I'm hoping to do that tonight, just as long as my friend shows up with his timing light. So far we have been adjusting by h...

Re: Issues after engine swap

Thanks for the reply.

My car won't start at all with the spout connected, so im not sure what it would idle like. I can only start with it unplugged. I even tried plugging it in while the car was idling, then it just died.

The motor came off of a turbo coupe.

Issues after engine swap

I finally got my engine installed, but it will only start with the Spout unplugged. If I try to start it with the Spout plugged in it will turn but won't start. When I remove the Spout it's starts right up, but idles very high, even after retarding the timing. If I plug in the Spout while running, i...

forward facing turbo elbow

So, I'm finally ready to start pluming my FMIC piping to my replacement motor and I noticed that this set up requires a forward facing turbo elbow. So far the only one that I can find comes in a kit. Does anyone know of any cheap alternatives? I would rather not spend the money on a whole kit when I...
