I'm not much help on fitting turbo's in Foxes - the only I ever had was an SVO. There are sure a billion examples out there, just have to find one you like, I've even seen some folks mount turbos under the car way back behind the axle!
    Sounds good, maybe let me know what you are thinking just for the intake before you go the trouble of looking for a box. Again I am trying not to buy non turbo parts right now.

    I am going to keep the A/C I don't like how most down pipes go beside the valve cover and down but the firewall. I think after I install the coil overs I can get the down pipe between the a arm and k member. There is alot of stuff under the hood. I see other cars that have tones of room. I really don't want to cut the car up, or rewire everything but that might be what it takes.

    Your not helping I think I can say no, but how much shipped to 27591?
    I was looking under the hood. From what it looks like the GT45 will be a tight fit. Is there another smaller sized turbo that will work well for a little more money but be easier to fit?

    Its not a very active project if there are not extra parts

    I bought a stock cam one time just because it was cheap. I am a sucker for free parts. I am pretty good about not buying parts for cars I don't own. The ported intake might not have been a wise purchase. I have an explorer intake that might be just as good, or better with some clean up.


    I do have to get that turd off my trailer. Who wants a Camaro?

    Do I take the time to install the NA parts or not needed the turbo will split it on its on, waste of good gaskets .
    there are some around here who buy parts for a car they haven't yet purchased... others, I think they just like changing parts to get a sense of accomplishment.

    It was used on the Corral. The porter was unknown. It was sold as "could be Tmoss ported". Most of the ports have been welded.

    I am going to order fuel pressure sensor, get it in. Then install my 60# injectors get them going. I ordered the wrong map sensor I sent it back hopefully will get the correct one next week.

    At some point I need to get a new fuel pump. As long as the pressure is good I might wait until I decide if I am going to relocate the battery. I want to run a new power wire from the battery to the pump.

    Tmoss ported lower? It will flow a lot more even is the biggest reason I can think of to do that. I'm gonna go with Richard Holdener on this one... make as much HP as you can NA and then add boost!l

    /edit - how could I forget?

    BEECAM!! oh man, that block is trembling in it's presence already!

    I did some horse trading and got some well used DeWalt 18v tools, including a reciprocating saw, the batteries are no good so I ordered some of the 20v batteries and adapter. Hopefully it will make jy trips easier.

    I bought some used deka 60 lb injectors. I was going to get new 80 or 100s but these had just be cleaned and flowed. They may need upgrading some day but they should get me most of the way there.

    Even with our low power foray into turbos and 5 speeds we discovered that we would likely be way quicker and way more consistent with an automatic. Particularly in the first 100 feet of track.
    Not sure how it will work after the turbo but the clutch tamer and two step make me look like better than I am. Last time at the track Four passes 60's had .055 separation. 1/8th had .025 separation. For a hack I call that consistent! Real bracket racers would say I have a ways to go.
