Good evening everyone.
As the title says, looking for suggestions on what parts to buy when purchasing a On3 kit for my 89 GT 351W TKO600.

Thanks for any suggestions you have.

Man,I can't imagine putting this kit on a Windsor. It's packed tight with an 8.2 deck already. I just installed this kit on my car,so everything is very fresh in my mind. What engine management are you going with? I'm running the MSPNP 2. Buy the DEI easy loom and wrap everything you can with it. The turbo obviously puts out tremendous heat,so you need to protect everything. The boost controller they include in the kit is junk,it's literally a air regulator. So you need to decide if you want a boost controller or just run it off the gate with the included spring. The oil return hose,the barb is too short,making it next to impossible to get the clamp in there. I strongly suggest going to an an fitting with a stainless hose setup. If you don't opt for the ceramic coating,wrap all the hot pipes with header wrap. The smaller v-band clamps for the wastegate/blowoff valve are sketchy,so be careful when tightening them. If you respond back with more specifics I can try to help you out.

Thanks for the input.
I’m running a PiMPxs and have most of the parts to convert to CNP with the expansion from Stinger. I have read/ watched videos that state I should wrap everything!! Thanks for the heads up about the weak clamps. This is what’s in the cart as of now, I forgot to add them.
I didn't purchase anything extra from them. You can get a turbo blanket on ebay for $25. I guarantee it's the same thing they're just making it convenient. I purchased an aftermarket vacumn tree on ebay and mounted it on the pass. side firewall. This allows you to run all the vacumn for the turbo without messing with anything else. Also,if you dont have a MM clutch cable,get one! Gives you tons of room to get around the forward facing header. I would skip the oil relocation kit as well,haven't heard anything good about it. Unfortunately,the FMS filter adapter is on national backorder. You can source one from a 5.0 Explorer though.

I actually bought and plan to convert to a McLeod hydro clutch, so no cable there by the time I get this installed. I will look at eBay for a blanket. I thought about the old explorer one,Thanks for confirming that had one back in the day. I’ll also look at that xtra vacuum tree.

justin91lx has a series of videos on Youtube going over the last 2 years of his 351 build and On3 build. Suffice to say, the car has been on jackstands more than on the road.
