      Yeah I know.... wtf!
      But I'm doing it. I have lots of fabricating to do, since I can't find anything to just bolt on, because let's face it. That would be way to easy wouldn't it?
      I have both turbos, two FMH blow-offs, and all the pipe I need. I have the plans pretty much drawn out.
      I'm about to go fire up the torch now and get started, wish me luck...

      what type of turbos and supporting mods will you be running? Are you going to piggy back on your ecu or do a stand alone system?

      if you want power and speed, one bigger turbo is better then twin turbo. twin turbo sounds like it would be better and faster but its not, it has to split and share the air. i swapped out my twin turbos on my mazda for one turbo and almost doubled my hoursepower:thumbsup:

      Hmm i don't agree with you:thumbdwn:
      When things are done right they work alot better. With turbos its not all about the size of the turbo but how you get your boost to the engine and how you get it in the engine.

      I'm running into some major spacial issues. So I had to go with some smaller turbos. They're only three pounds of boost each, which gives me six pounds of boost pretty much... I don't want to risk putting any more than that because I'd rather not blow the whole thing up.

      I will be using a piggy back set up for my ECU, I just haven't decided whether or not to use a programmable one or fixed.

      I am also looking at performance camshafts and rocker arm assemblies, pretty much just playing with numbers.

      As for the transmission, I have the Mazda 5 speed, I'm looking for overhaul kits, but the search is not looking good. A higher staged clutch isn't a problem though.

      With all of this electrical bologna, I'm almost ready to go carbed.

      I broke my Mazda 5speed twice with a N/A motor putting 256 ft/lbs to the ground.....

      Good luck keeping it together...

      There are 0 strong/hi-perf parts for the 5 Speed

      i give the stock transmission 500 miles after install before it just falls to the pavement it can't handle the torque through a 700r4 in it and modify that so it can handle the power and abuse...put dual intercoolers on the X too :) sounds like a fun project...

      Yes Ryan you are correct, 0....

      Now looking for something that will bolt on, well I haven't looked yet, but hoping I can find something.

      No pics. If I took any it would just be a butchered manifold. I have found that wishful thinking is futile when working with a ford.

      I haven't lost all hope though, it just looks like I have to put the turbos further under to clear everything.

      I'm getting a braintrust together this weekend to hopefully figure some of these issues.

      because it's the easiest and most sufficient way of obtaining true horsepower without having to build and overhaul a entire engine with a bunch of parts that will equal out to well over twice the cost of a homegrown turbo set up...

      BTW Audi S4 00-02 my dream european car has a twin turbo v6 with 250hp stock...and can be modified to 500+ hp with a chip, race gas, and a upgraded turbo system...so in other words turbo is the way to go...

      With that trans, you could look into swapping it out into an M50D R1HD for your normal one. These can be gotten from 1997 and later explorers and rangers with the SOHC. I believe it bolts right up in place of the old one, and is stronger since it is designed for the more powerful motor.

      Kyle is right... except for the whole euro thing, j/k. A buddy of mine runs the FloridaGerman car club, he's got a Mercedes Benz 190, I think it's an '84. He's pushing close to 600hp. I would go euro, but his is ALWAYS busted, and my hands are to big for german engine bays.

      And yes the HD will bolt up, I found that out earlier today, I also found a rebuilt one for 1200 dollars. I think that's going to be the cheapest I can find, but I'm still gonna look around for a bit.

      easiest? How do you figure that its the eaiest way when supercharger installs are a matter of a couple of hours or even less? I've read about remote turbo setup, are cars too low to the ground to attempt such a thing, I'm very interested in doing it to my mercedes.

      I disagree man theres alot of easier ways to make power such as a remote supercharger (no exhaust work being the big factor). That and a overhaul does not cost twice as much as a turbo setup i can get a .30 kit for under $300 a cam for $110 and machine work for about $300 (heads, block, and intake). It looks like you're living a turbo fairytale here.
      That and you make it sound like a overhaul is hard and throwing in a turbo take a couple hours. Most turbo setups are custom work, overhualing an engine is a set process that takes a day max with knowledgeable and capable people.

      twin turbo 4.6 mustangs put out 800+ horsepower to the wheel try and get that with just a supercharger and a little port work not going to happen...unless you spray it too...

      I don't think they make 800+ hp with out alot of other work done to them. Besides that i don't think the engines internals, trans, or axels could handle it for very long. Seriously you should stop just throwing out numbers like that. Alot of things you're saying just arent true, and you're probaily confusing people.

      That and there are superchargers that can push the same psi as turbos they just sap power from it running on the belt system. But its really not all that much. Turbos have more problems with heat and such, just something to think about.
