FOUR BANGIN B@STERD!

updated: May 30th 2013 @ 12:20 AM
I have a 1988 mustang lx I haven't had it long but I think if it wasn't for me it would be in a junk yard or rotting away some where, anyway the goal of this project is to take this plan old 88 lx 4 banger in to a turbo charged beast hahahaha.  Its probably not what your thinking of, you see I'm going to use a 87 Thunderbird engine its a four banger too but its turbo charged, now I know some of you reading this are like wtf are you going to waste your time on a 4 banger when you can get a v8 O_o.  Well I have come to the realization that most people that say that to me don't understand where I'm coming from and don't listen when I try to explain it so ill just make it simple and say BECAUSE I WANT TO . when this engine is completed mods and all Ill be pushing 400 hp don't believe me? well just keep checking here and u will see my progress I have no doubts.

“” where im from. anything that has 4 cyl is declared a ricer. no matter if it has turbos, s/c, etc... because they see it like this, if a honda civic has 4 cylinders and a set of twin turbos and n2o and a fox body mustang thats 4 cylinder with the same set up, they are the same. therefore called ricers, thats the only reason i said it like that, im not trying to offend you in any way but thats just how i grew up and what cars like yours are called around here.

but why a 4cyl? why waste the money on a 4banger when you can buy a 302, stroke it to a 347 or something, and turbo it. youd get twice as much or more Horses and spend the same amout of money or less....? i just dont get it.
Originally this was just going to be a swap, stock for stock, just the stock turbo coupe engine just for some cheap extra power untill i got the money together for the v8 build i wanted to do originally. But the more i messed with it the more it grew on me, i spent a far amount of money so far but nothing crazy. there are those who have gone faster with less money then i spent with 2.3t, this car will run a 12, and when im done this new set up ill be in the 11's im sure. You would really have to mess around with one of these to really get it. when i first heard about them i brushed it of pretty quick, but then once i saw the potential of these little engines  and how rediculously cheap and easy it was to start off i couldnt resist, also i was pretty broke at the time. if i took the money i spent on this engine and put it toward a v8 i dont think i would be making much more power. Its a hobby.
