Default Turbo Charged Mustang saleen

Couple of weeks ago I had the opportunity to build the upper end of this 625 horse powered Saleen Mustang. After installing the heads we added a LITTLE extra kick with the Turbo Charger. Ya want to talk about fast, this thing will sit you back in the seat. Back in the day we would sit a $20.00 bill on the dash and if you could grab it, it was yours....NOT in this car will you ever get the $20.00....Enjoy

Where do you find the time to do all these things you do? You seem to handy and pretty much everything.

Is that a Turbo charger or Super Charger? I had a turbo charged Ford Pickup. The Turbo ran off the exhaust pressure, whereas a Super Charger is either electric or belt driven. I thought about putting a Supercharger on my Tacoma, but finally decided against it, simply because I couldn't justify the cost (5-10K) for what I do with it - -

Would be fun to have something like that though!

Default 1989 Mustang GT

I owned a 1989 Mustang GT with the 5.0 liter V8 engine.

I had thought this car was fast when I bought it. I lost several drag races with various other cars.

I found out it only had 225 horsepower.

Talk about enefficient. I lost one drag race with a four cylinder with double over head cams.

If a four cylinder can have more horsepower than a V8, something is wrong.

I had the nerve to drag race on base right in front of the colonels house.

If I had been caught I would have been busted down.
