Brake lines would help with the chassis, maybe some engine/ engine compartment wiring would help a little bit

Yeah that 87 TC I ordered this morning will supply the go-go. The turbo in this kit isn't as inspiring visually as the one they tooled for the Thunderbird. I'll do some wires and what-not once i get to motor stage.

.........hm. I REALLY was trying to keep the rest of the car SVO... But that's tempting. I have the Hertz kit in the corner after all.

It sure isn't just a warm-air intake and brace similar to the bullitt kit.

Can I suggest the Taurus SHO motor instead? That would look cool in the engine bay I think.

i hadn't thought of that one either. i'm leaning towards its native turbo setup but i'll keep that one in mind

As mentioned earlier, I would be using the 87 T.C. engine and here's some progress. Things been slow on this, and there isn't much special on this car but i'll keep on since i started this after all lol.

since the engine halves were so small, being a 4-Cyl. i painted the halves via brush. trans is testors gunmetal, looks black in photos often esp. on my phone. halves are ready for a distributor via radio shack 30g wrap wire.

Looking good, the oil filter looks like you could spin it right off and do an oil change :lol:

thanks jon. had to sand and carve the oil pan, as well as trim the driveshaft mount. The 87TC engine and the 85SVO engine were a lil different measurement-wise.

Not surprised really, but does not sounds like it was a lot of work to make it fit though
