You've lost me a little. GT55 with no intercooler - are running methanol or E85?Little weekend recap!
Thats all folks! Also how come nobody comments on here? Feel like im talking to myself haha
Mustangs need love too! and my particular swap makes the ford forums angry.Because Mustang on a G body forum would be my guess…..
Regardless, nice work!
My fiance says the same thing about it.Its first thing in the morning man. Let me have my coffee!
I, for one, enjoy the suicide machine progress...
Appreciate it!Love the build! Lot's of quality work going on here
Its got a Shearer 2k HP air to water on it, but the car will be on E85 next year and probably switching over to meth.You've lost me a little. GT55 with no intercooler - are running methanol or E85?
The pic you posted of the radiator installed is a little scary. You need to get all of the heat away from the turbo inlet. But the radiator you showed appeared to be able to be relocated.
You're not looking for 800-900hp with the GT55 are you?
I've been following, but.......busy and I've not been following close enough. I'm very interested where this ends up. The GT55 is......................turbo p*rn lol.
That car is going to be on the back-burner until i get time to either put a 25.3 cage in it or make it a coyote/Whipple street car lol.How I respond to updates to your thread:
It's good stuff... but, another car is just silly.
But are they ever REALLY done?That car is going to be on the back-burner until i get time to either put a 25.3 cage in it or make it a coyote/Whipple street car lol.
Monte Carlo will be next on the chopping block to be finished first.
I'm looking forward to your progress with this. A GT55 is a giant turbo and trying to keep it in the 800hp range is going to be difficult, or I should say it would be for me. That thing is going to gain 50+hp/lb of boost. But it's going to take a stick of dynamite to light it off, and then try to hold it to 10psi - it will be challenging.Im looking for 800-900 on a soft tune lol, this turbo should put me well in to the 13xx-14xx range with the forged motor.

Regarding the forged motor for 1300hp - that's a head shaker for me. My opinion - go full baller with an aftermarket block, or go full sloppy and have the next candidate sitting in the garage.
Keep up the work and updates!!!
I understand. I was attempting to indicate that it will take a knowledgeable guy to get this to light off. Also, I understand that this is not much of a street driver.Oh this motor is only temporary!! I plan to put a deposit down and get a place in line for a Mike Lough motor next year after our bonuses come in.
Regarding the other info, you'd be surprised how quickly you can spool these turbos with a good tuner, proper cam choice (not an off the shelf in most cases), and converter. I just ordered my Hughes Powerglide this morning, it will have dump valves that will also shorten coming up on boost. Talking to John Bewley and James Short ~ two pretty knowledgeable guys in the LS world they seem to think that i will be fairly stable in the boost range around 10-12 psi on a soft tune with the wastegates i have.
