Turbo mach 1 build

Recommended Posts

So I finally decided to stop being lazy and compile all my stuff into one thread.

This is what my car looked like when I bought it. This was the moment I handed over the cash.

Was it hard to install just the carrier, did you have to set new clearances? im planning on doing this soon wanted to know if I can do it or take it to a shop? 

I actually haven't installed it yet so I don't know yet. I'll tell you as soon as I do it, even though it may be in a few months when I return.

going to keep the 98 cobra cams, and i dont know what pulley is on it. future goals would be a whipple. but thats way future. I'll try and pulley it for 18 psi or something.

yes, eaton fits nicely under the hood. remember machs have a factory cowl. IIRC all the way up to a whipple 3.4l will fit under the shaker and factory hood.

 

another update too, teksid, arp side bolts, arp main studs and canton windage tray arrived.

 

still looking for another forged crank, and will be ordering rings and oil pump next paycheck

That pulley with a 4lb lower and a stage 3 port gives my buddy about 14psi.

14?! Sounds extremely low for a 2.76 and 4# lower....

It's a rough guess. When he called Steggy about it that's what they said he should be around. Someday I'll get him to hook up an aftermarket gauge.

Dang ok. Doing a similar setup on the slowbra but was expecting more. Guess we will both see!

I don't watch that show. To stupid for me to follow. I only consider turbo because I'm to tired of having issues completing or finding a decent price complete Eaton swap.. 90% Eaton swaps are slowly moving towards the 3.5k range. Fucking stupid.

Geez I didn't know Eaton setups were getting that expensive. That's ridiculous. Have you considered centrifugal blowers at all?

I really like the car though. It and all the new parts look really nice.
