  1. Turbocharging Ford V-6's - Info Wanted

    I want to put 5psi to my 4.0l at low rpm. Got an air research/banks/Caterpillar/Garrett "hybrid" (from miscellaneous broken turbos but all Garrett-based) Current plan: low mount with maf in front of turbo so it can meter properly. How much can I sling on pure stock at low rpm? 2000-3200 is my...

Front coils already have a 1 inch spacer too and rear is stock. Imo it would be better to soften rear to allow fuller range of...
  6. Electrical issues. No crank, spark, radio, wipers
