So after a bit of page flicking on fleabay I found this....

http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/ford-5-0-v8- ... 1c2b74aa08.

Anybody able to comment on if it would be worth it?...I have a DL LTD with explorer manifold and standard injectors. Im guessing a 1/4 horse or something similar would be required as well as bigger than standard injectors/exhaust?

Its cheap... but theres not enough photos to tell much.

can only see 1 manifold, its possible the cross over joins to the factory header on the other side.

was surprised to see the MAF housing welded to the compressor housing.

I've got an equally crappy looking setup on my Wagon and its still going.

if you're considering turboing anyway, it'd be a good starting point.

Is it worth putting on a stoandard 5L?....is there anything else to be wary of?....but im thinking if it doesnt go much higher in price than at least is going to be a couple of fun drives

Fair enough, might be worth a shot than at that price.

cheap chinese turbo off blown motor = headache.It's only a J-pipe setup by the looks of it. You could probably do your own junkyard turbo for less.
