Some Random Garage Pics and....humongous turbo!

I've been on this forum for quite some time now, and i've never really shared pictures of my car. Just a couple of pics for you guys for now.

on a side note, I was at the gas station today, and i was talking with this guy in a lifted truck who had a huge appreciation for the car scene (he was in a lifted truck, but also has a monster of a GT500 in his garage; long-story short, we started talking about turbos and super chargers. I told him I wanted to eventually boost mine, and he pulls out a huge Garret turbo (I believe from Ford); the thing must weight at least 50 pounds, but he gave it to me for....FREE! He said make it work!

Now my next question to you fanatics, excuse my ignorance, but will this thing fit/work? What do I need to do in order to make it fit?









Will it work

It all depends how custom you want to go OP. That turbo should definitely fit under there. If you wanted to buy certain parts instead of having to fabricate everything from scratch. I can PM the number of the guy I go through for help/advice/parts at HorsePowerFreaks-HPF. Don't worry he won't try and make you but all their stuff, lol. But he will give you what ever help he can to get this project under way. Or get you in contact with someone who can help you build a custom setup. Also you might want to check the FI section on here. A company called Doc Racing is in the process of making a top mount turbo setup for our cars. Looks really good so far.

Best of luck OP. I look forward to seeing how this project is going to turn out.

Thanks for the heads up! Yea, i definitely want to see if this can turn into a project, but with the little amount of time i have on my hands (work, we just moved to this new place re: garage pics, etc.) I may have to put it on the back burner hopefully for not to long. But, if you can PM me the guy's number who you talk to that would be great!

I'm excited as well!

Pretty much. We were talking at a gas station, and i said i eventually want boost, and he said, "hold up, my buddy gave me this thing," walks to the back of his truck and gives it to me He was like, "I'm going to regret giving you that thing."

I might sell it though; don't have much time to start a project this big.
