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!
Current modification list:

Watching a turbo kit come together is always exciting to see, no matter what car it’s on. The intense detail that goes into every piece makes it not only a car part, but a work of art as well.
And it just looks badass once everything is bolted up, and that big turbo stairs you in the eye. This Evo is craving its appointment with the dyno. Here’s a bunch of extra photos of the turbo kit for your viewing pleasure.
To top everything off we bolted a massive APR Performance carbon fiber wing to the trunk. Big wings don’t work every time, but it definitely worked this time.
Now lets get this big turbo Evo strapped down for a dyno tune! Check back for for some power figures.

Evo’s are one of our specialties, and when it comes to custom turbo kits, we’re the best in the business. This Evo X is going to get a PSI Proformance custom turbo kit, minus the intercooler which was supplied by the owner. That means exhaust manifold, intercooler piping, downpipe, etc is all going to be custom fabricated by us.
To help with power even more, we cracked open the head for some upgrades. It was treated to upgraded cams with valve springs and retainers to go along with them.
The exhaust manifold is getting mocked up in our jig to make sure everything fits flawlessly. Check back for more updates on this turbo build!
