Hmmm, if I read it properly (and some would suggest I don't), it would seem you do not have enough FordMods cred to post in ForSale.

However, I do think (again, some would suggest I don't) that you could put up some photos.

I'd love to do the turbo thing to my tired old EF, but it'd blow itself to bits and leak all over the floor the first time I put the boot down.

Still, show me, show me, show me... Drool.

heres a pic of it, the sale wont include the turbo jacket or the boot insulators and the plenum will be replaced with the standard one again since this one has been modified to suit my lpg system.

heres some details of my project to try even it up and compensate for not advertising in for sale section.. heres my turbo project finally finished after many hours, thrown tools and bleeding knuckels as im sure most of you would have had the pleasure of enduring.

im running straight lpg thru two b2 converters and an impco 425 mixer. boost kicks in just under 2 grand (launches awesome when stalled up :D) and hits full boost at about 2500.

did the whole thing with help from my old man, used an oxy torch to weld up all the stainless cooler piping. i'll keep the pics from a bit of a distance because it was my first attempt at welding and im not very flash...

plenum was modified by the very talented benny at natrad, throttle body was a bit difficult, had to pull it apart and reverse the cable guide to have the cable come from the back rather than the front.
everything in the corner was a very tight fit but daddy worked his magic in fabrication to get it all in there happily.

thrown in a pic of the headlights too.. iv got a philips crystal vision on the drivers side and ebay special HID that cost the same on the passenger side. HIGHLY RECCOMMENDED!!! anyone who has an ef knows how s**t the headlights are, the HID's made an enormous difference. very happy.

anyway pics should do the rest of the talking..

the bracket for the converters and fitted. prick of a thing to mount, abs module couldnt be in a worse spot. abs also made it difficult to run the cooler piping but as long as i dont hit a gutter at full lock i should be right.

yeah fair bit of effort getting it all to fit properly but happy with how it turned out. has anyone relocated the fuses and relays from where the battery fits? i moved them under the guard and just have a positive battery post sitting there for convenience when adding accessories but wouldnt mind knowing where other people have put them.

also with the thermo fan relays theyre all under the front bar now too but im a little concerned about getting water in there. anyone done a similar thing?

an no lol dont want to be parted with the manifold :P it fits too nicely

get a garret gt3540 or the same as the xr6 turbo has, a mate has one on a VS commodore and it spools up instantly.
