1988 Ford Thunderbird
Property of bhazard Added Sep 2009 Location: Toledo, OH
Fairly stock 1988 Turbo Coupe, only a few mild mods.
Head has a "ranger roller cam" setup. A little more mild than a stock cam but its roller rather than slider. Probably a little bit better low end too.
3" Full exhaust with magnaflow muffler.
K&N filter in place of the air box.
Boost is bumped up to 18-20psi over stock 15psi.
Empty weight is estimated at around 3200lbs. Car weighed 3600 with 250lbs worth of people and near full tank of gas (22gal/140lbs) and a few small things.
Similar turbo coupes have dyno'd around 200whp and 320wtq. The 2.3 is quite a torquey engine.
Retiring 2011 in favor of an 86 XR7...
It ran a 14.71 @ 92.4mph with a 2.02 60' at Milan Dragway on 10/07/09.
