Building a Hornet that is going to be a 5.3 twin turbo. Hoping for a quick and fun street strip car.

Car was bought for $2000 and had a SBC in it. It is surprisingly clean and rust free for being a car from new england.

Threw together a 5.3 with gen 4 rods and pistons, LJMS stage 1 twin turbo cam, BTR .660 valve springs, and a Holley high ram. Turbos will be borg S366 clones.

Removed factory front suspension and installed an AJE k member from their colt65 system for early mustangs and torinos. Installed fox body front suspension, steering rack and caster camber plates.

do you have any pics of underneath were that cross member attaches to the frame i'd like to copy this idea but with motor plates and amc power, but i'm really interested in what it took to get the k member and struts in it and which mustang is that setup for?

Nice build....I used a 6.0 with a single GT45 turbo in my 74 Javelin. Great power on E85 with very easy 9 sec ets. Tested it off the gas from the 1/8 mile went a 9.81 @ only 121. I can drive it anywhere. I'll be following your build. Best of luck!!!
