Thanks to Jeff for putting together a great primer on how to turbocharge a SPI/CVH Escort. I don't have a car yet, but I found a EXP Turbo manifold locally and I think I'm going to pick it up. The Escort meets all my criteria for being cheap and fairly light weight. How far have people pushed a Turbo Coupe Hybrid? Be nice, I am not under 20 and I've had fast cars before (SRT-4, Mustang GT) I was just watching a '85 TC run [email protected] with a ported IHI standard TC turbo. According to the thread on TurboFord.org the car is 3400lbs, which equates to 317hp, not too shabby. (18-19psi) - http://forum.turboford.org/cgi-bin/ulti ... 3;t=031426 I went [email protected] in my SRT-4, stock turbo similar 60ft (1.78 vs 1.76), stock turbo, 15-16psi, dyno'ed on eddy current 250hp/300ft. Considering an Escort could be anywhere from 200-300lbs lighter and I'm personally 25lbs lighter than when I made those passes in 2008/2009; I think roughly the same power as my SRT-4 with the stock turbo (which was ported as well) . Seems a TC IHI Hybrid will get me there, will it work? I am not concerned about fueling at all. I may be able to use my stock SRT-4 fuel pump which was leftover from the Stage 3R upgrade. I can get Mustang MAF/Injectors as well. Take it down to FSWerks and let them sort it out. I am still reading a bunch of threads to bare with me.
