Hey Im the new guy whats up!

I have a question that I have put alot of research into and can seem to find anything, here it is,

I have a 65 mustang I want to turbo charge, there is a tiny problem I can't seem to round up a kit for something like this.

I see 87-93 5.0 kits all day long I thinking I could start with one of these but Im just not sure how much fabrication would be involved?

Their has to be somebody that has turboed there classic mustang!

I'm guessing the Fox kits won't work as the Fox exhaust manifolds hit the shocktowers big time. Turbo kits are pretty much car-specific to use the available room in that particular car, and take advantage of whatever they can. Most people use a 5.0 EFI system when turbo'ing these cars BTW. There's a guy at another board I frequent that has a 66fb with a twin-turboed EFI'ed 331 & Viper 6spd. ~550rwHP & 24mpg :D

I am getting ready to do my 65. I first spoke with Comp Cams on the cam selection and then I called Turbo Netics, and based on my engine combination they are suggesting a T76 for my application. It will require some custom work and brackets as well as a complete redo of the exhaust of course. Base engine changes will only require a new set of pistons to lower the compression ratio. I plan to keep a good pictorial history of how it works out.
Another buddy of mine is just preparing to do a blow through on his 65 FB. Much less cost of course and should net him about 410-420 at the rear wheels.

If you are looking for a turbo....you're best bet is to upgrade the motor and set it up with the late model EFI and computer and then you can use the 'kits'

If you don't want to do that, you can add a NOVI 1200 Paxton supercharger instead and continue to use a carb setup.

I guess I should have mentioned that as part of the upgrade, I will be using the Accel DFI setup. Only way to go if you go turbo. Cost is not too bad either. Having an in house dyno will definitely come in handy on this project.
