We’ve done Mustangs with Prochargers before, but this one is a little different. The owner brought us the car with the Procharger already installed and wanted to do a little twist on it. He wanted an smaller diameter pulley for more boost, but a wastegate on the intercooler piping to regulate boost pressure. With this kind of setup he will be able to run different amounts of boost up to the max psi that the pulley produces.
Placement of the red Tial blow off valve and wastegate was definitely important. From the outside others had to know that this Mustang was something special. We decided to mount them on each side of the intercooler so that they’d show in the lower part of the front bumper. Their red color definitely makes their presence known.
The small diameter pulley will be producing around 20 lbs of boost, but the wastegate will be able to regulate it.
While we were under the hood, we upgraded the crank sprocket and oil pump gear as preventative maintenance, since they are known to fail.
Stay tuned for more updates!

The 300ZX we have been working on is getting tidied up! Everything is coming into place in this tight engine bay. We recently finished up a custom catch can that’s mounted front and center. Once finished, it’ll be all polished along with the power steering reservoir.
After some work on the dyno, this thing was making some serious power. The owner requested both 93 and 100 octane tunes. With just the 93 it laid down a mean 508whp and 411wtq, making it an already serious street machine. After draining the tank of 93 and pouring in some 100 octane, things got interesting. Some more straps needed to be added to the rear to keep from spinning tires on the dyno. The result, 630whp and 510wtq at 26psi! This is going to be one clean and fast Z out on the streets. This project has been in the works for a long time now, and we’re definitely very proud of the end result.
