I have a 95 cobra 5.0 convertible and looking to turbo or supercharge to get around 425 hp for now then more later on. A good friend of mine has a new still in box twin turbo t3/t4 hybrid turbocharger kit for his mustang and needs money really bad. Can buy kit really cheap. I've never heard of the kit. What do yall think about putting it on my 95 with low boost for now then stepping it up later. Mine is basically stock except for cold air intake steeda suspension chipped and tuned. Appreciate any help. Like everybody else I'm on a low budget and can get this really cheap but is it worth it?

I believe you have to change the K-member out for a turbo kit but if you don't for this kit then it's a good way to go. :thumbsup:

If you are looking for 425 RWHP, that is easly attainable with a Vortech or pretty much any turbo kit. It really depends on what brand the turbo kit is. The 94\95's have hyper pistons, they can hold the power but any detonation will put a hole in them, so the tune is extremely important to get right. Being a stock engine, keeping the boost down to below 8 is a must. Yes, most twin tubo kits ususally require a tubulat K member. If you have the ablity to install the turbo kit, then you probly can change out the K member, it's removing the entire front suspension and replacing it with new pieces.
Also, you having a vert would need to have the chassic stiffened, sub frame matrix. You would have to have to have a dyno tune to be safe on the stock motor.
More info on the turbo. Shop would depend on your location. How much for the kit? Hmmm. :)
