    Anyone turbo their 3.8 sn95 Mustang ? [build progress]

    This is the progress im at right now. I can add turbo #2 but the clutch cable and brake stuff is in the way of the downpipe. I will be adding hood air scoops. I'll probably do metal scoops. I need to cut a bit more for the air filter as well. Yeah, my hood's cracked. Hood pins are on the list also.
