  1. Finally pulled the car out of the garage last weekend after i finished all the repairs/mods i've done this winter. Here's what i did:

    New Bambev turbo cartridge
    Ported my E6
    added a Forge BOV
    4 New Khumo 711 235/45/17 on new 00 GT 5 spoke wheels
    Took the interior apart and steam cleaned everything
    Meguiars 3 step detailing, only i used the new Meguiars NXT wax instead of the 3rd step wax.

    The sticker is a turboford.org sticker, and i haven't found locking lug nuts that fit inside of the wheel center caps yet.

    And the interior

    The car is a lot more fun to drive now, and getting to be pretty fast. The Khumo's also grip very well.

    Any questions/comments?
     
  2. Why is the scoop off to the side?

  4. looking good Cougar, nice upgrades.
     
  5. It's not original. It's called a Ford Dark Tourmaline.
     
  6. Its an original SVO hood thats why :) Don't confuse it with the aftermarket SVO hoods that is centered and usualy has a cowl also.


    By the way that car don't looks so well , you better let me have it so I can drive it around a make sure its ok for ya to be driving around in :D
     
  7. you didnt happen to break any bolts dis-assembling your turbo did you? And if you did.. where did you get new ones? I have about 4 broken housing bolts and i want to get a bamabeve cartridge but dont know where to get some new freakin bolts! Any ideas? Also how hard was putting that together?
