1988 f250 "TURBO" 302 mud truck in the process VIDEOS

i started building this truck a couple of months ago and it has been a slow process but i havent spent a whole lot of money all of the parts i had laying around..... i have a civic that i was going to make into a racecar but decided to keep it stock and i used the turbo i had for it and put it on this truck ...... i still need to do some fine tuning , fix the leak in my charge pipe, get tire's, add a 3" body lift and another 3 inches of suspension so i can clear 47's, and maybe another coat or 2 of grey spry paint......

let me know what you think and if you have a youtube account subscride and i will be adding more videos as the project progresses

i assume this is your first turbo v8? just a pointer..you will need a bigger turbo. i would do a master power t70 with a .68 housing on it. you will be alot happier imo. looks good either way though.

i had two turbos laying around a 6.0L powerstroke turbo or this one i went with the smaler one because it was way easier to install and i can build 2-4psi with it and it doesent lean it out to where i would need to get a tune or anything..... its just a mud truck it will never see the road or over 35-40 mph for that matter.... just alot of redline....and rev limiter

i am prolly going to dump it into the bed with it being such a small turbo it only builds like 2-4psi and the wastegate dosent open until8psi so basicly it dosent really serve a purpose as of yet maybe some time later down the road

well if it starts seeing the rev limiter it will probably grenade the motor. it will choke the motor, shoot the egt's skyhigh and cause the motor to detonate and bye bye. i am not trying to be a smartass here just trying to help a little. i have a decent amount of exp with v8's and turbos so i figured i would try to help you make it a litle farther. also check out The Turbo Forums.com and you will learn alot
