Turbo Outlaw Mustang

Hello, my name is Nick and a while back I had been posting a build I was working on when life kinda got super busy and left me unable to find a moment to have much fun. Well long story short I really enjoyed sharing my build with all of you and I have been looking forward to starting something I could share here. Now that I have time back under control and some time to enjoy lets get started.

I wanted to build a single turbo outlaw style late model mustang.

I only have one main goal for this project. I want to focus on making sure that the plumbing and exhaust systems get completed in the most accurate manner possible. I want to run everything as the would try on a 1:1 car. It seems that in this department it is easier to just run them where ever they fit as space in 1:25 runs out quick. So my mission is to try and out thing the snags and issues as space continues to run out. Thank you all for having a forum where I can share my build among some of the best builders I have ever seen.

Thank you everyone for your kind words. I was able to get a little work done on the intercooler. I also mocked up some piping for the charge pipes running to and from the intercooler. Thanks again for looking and all of your kind comments..... Nick

I'm with Tyrone,

Fantastic job on the chassis!

I've got a long way to go before I can bend up a cage like that.

Keep on posting! I like where this build is headed!

Personally I woulda put the turbo in the opening on the bottom of the bumper which would allow for easier piping to be made, but what you did is still nice.

Keep it up

Thanks for the advice. The reason I stayed high with the turbo location is the same reason we do with the big cars. You start running into issues with the down tubes getting in the way on the chassis. it gets awful tight where the bottom of the chassis meets the two down tubes. in real life its easier to make the charge pipes work around the chassis ands its unique issues than changing the chassis and at the same time balance and perhaps making structural issues. So long story short there is actually more room to work slightly higher where the bars are further away from anything else your trying to jam in. Sorry for the long explanation just was one of the things I had considered in length both in this model as well as 1:1 builds. Thank you very very much for your comment and your encouragement. more on the way soon..........Nick

This is going to be sick! Beautiful work. I can only hope this is going to be hooked to a nice 4 valve : )

Nick... this is one outstanding build you are doing. I am digging the chassis and the work going int the turbo set up. I really like how you have routed the ducting for the turbo. Looking forward to more

Small update, was able to get a little work done. Starting the prep the motor. I was going to put a ross Gibson engine in the build,, But..... I think it would be more interesting to do the 4 valve. Nothing wrong with a slightly smaller block in this quickly shrinking engine bay ;)

Thanks for looking and all of your comments. I appreciate the motivation from all you. Some of the best builders in the world are on this site!!

If you need a set of 4 valve cam covers pm me. I love these 4 valve mod motors. they respond to boost well. I have a few 1:1s B)

Hey again everyone, sorry for the delay in progress, been super busy with work this week. :wacko: Anyways, was able to get the majority of the work out of the way on the intake manifold. Still have some minor things to add but the main bulk is complete. I love how ford has the intake runners going straight into the top of the valley/head instead of the traditional easy to recreate angled runner directly into the cylinder head :blink: . Hope it looks alright, I'm happy with the outcome. Its tricky to get those ideas out of your head and into a piece you can hold in your hand. That's the fun part. But when you pull it off , that's what I enjoy the most. :) Thanks for looking and as always I appreciate all of your comments. ..... Nick

Hey everyone, sorry for the delay. Work has been pretty busy and haven't had much time to even think :) Anyways finally got a little done on the headers. This part is kind of hard with again the space limitations. But I'm happy with the progress so far. I still have to finish cleaning the header up, once the rough edges are gone I think it will look great. Thanks for watching and letting me know what you think..... Nick
