Down pipe was super easy.

2.75" out of the turbo, because that's what size it is, to a 3" pipe that sits about 2" off of the shock tower , to a 

45 deg and down the length of the fire wall.

will build the rest of the exhaust when the car is ready to get the engine stuffed back in

After being back burnered for a good 6 months the Turbo engine is in the 64 Falcon.

set the valves,wire and plum it.

and the see if I can go break something.

with the small turbo if I can get to the low 11's and pull the front tires I would be happy.

It's a Holset HX 35

maybe a little small , but I wish not to knock the rods out of the motor right away.

still should be good for 480-495 hp ish 

10 psi @ 5500 rpm

2600 lb car , 8" tire until it's tubbed 

you can do the math from there

getting closer on this one.

engine is in

trans is in

new fltywheel, clutch , lifters , measured -and installed the new pushrods, set the valves and timing

have a crap ton of new parts in boxes waiting to be installed , including all new brake lines

quickly realizing the fact that I have known, even that the turbo was free, it is going to be too damn small.

so what I need to get ( or just order ) is a GT45 ish size turbo

the T-3 flange on the holset is just going to choke the motor down too far

and I can use it on an upcomming project anyway.

 

SOOO..... I need a set of seats for the interior, cut and fit the roll bar, finish welding some chassis stuff and I need some kind of fuel pump

have the regulator , just need the pump and some lines and wire the car

Falcon update

The original turbo I had gotten was just going to be too damn small, so being my own worst influence things got a little nuts.
The new turbo on the left and the old one on the right.
Excessive clearance was needed so out came the cutoff wheel and all his friends.
Also welded up and installed the waste gate 
This turbo will make way more boost than this first motor can handle,
Will be on the road later this summer

Since there is a divided pipes into the turbo.are you running dual external Wastegate? Doesn't look like it has a internal wastegate
