Has anybody done a full turbo system on a 99 taurus? I have been toying with the idea of having the motor fully rebuilt with forged parts to hold a Garret 72mm...maybe a 100hp wet shot for kicks...I just think that having a Taurus with right around 450 horse would be AMAZING...however...I feel as though the transmission WILL NOT be able to keep up...I'm starting to think that Ford has failed again...any ideas?

Not that I have seen. I have sen 2 attempts so far and 1 didn't work out. The other I forget.

The Contour guys do it all the time though.

I would start with the stock motor and work from there, you should be fine with low boost. From there you can work your way up.

It might be good to start low and work your way up. That way you can find the weak spots and fix them.

24lbs is a lot for any car. I know SHOs usually run 12-14lbs and hit 400hp+.

I will be running 9psi and plan to hit 350hp at the cranks.

So 24lbs will be a lot and way more then 400hp

I'm going to be watching this thread..I want pics though because if he figures it out and has the $ to do it will be sick. Although I think 1 of 2 things is gonna happen, he's going to build boost and put a torque converter through his ankles, or, there's gonna be a news bulletin of a terrorist flying a taurus.
