88 Thunderbird Turbo Swap!

Recommended Posts

Hey guys! I thought I'd post my build here and update it as progress is made.

 

She's a 1973 240z with a T5 transmission and a ford 2.3 turbo from an 88 turbo coupe. I'm not sure how many of these swaps have been done, but it seems relatively uncommon.

 

Engine has FMIC, manual boost control, adjusted FPR, come filter, and is getting a 3in exhaust next weekend, should be right around 250wheel. It's going to stay pretty stock until the body work and suspension is done.

 

Please feel free to ask me any questions! I've always loved the hybrid Z community.

 

- John

Awsome swap! Looking to do this myself! 

 

What did did you do for the motor mounts and trans? Also what trans are you running?
