Welcome any pictures of the truck

When you ask for suggestions on turbos what are you looking for exactly?

Don't wanna come across as a a-hole but do you know anything about turbo's

Default re.

ive done some homework on the twin turbo packages... and the reason im going blow through is its most likely the cheapest and simplest way, ive been kicking around fuel injection but performance fuel injection setups are expensive... im planing on building the motor with the turbos in mind also... dish pistons and large combustion chambers... and ive already got the carb and intake... turbos are on order... the carb is the barry grant 825 blow through... and the intake is a edelbrock victor. im not shure about heads yet... im thinkin i wana stick with iron heads just at least till i get everything figured out... then later on down the line mabe switchin to some alloy heads... what i would realy like to know is about the fuel pressure regulator... and how i would have to go about settin that up... from what ive been reading, i would want it so that when the turbos spool up the regulator increases the fuel pressure to prevent the motor from going lean... makes sense but do i need a certan regulator and if so how to hook it in? its a learning experience for me... and we all just wana have a little fun along the way... oh and another thing... any mustang buffs in the house? i have a t45 5 speed and im just curious if anyone has made an adapter to fit it to a windsor block yet? of if i should just scratch that idea? i realy have no idea how much power i should expect out of this motor... this is also my first ford build...
