    if I do the aluminator (up there on my list) I will definitely go thru Anthony @ Tommy Vaughn as he talked to me like we were old friends and is willing to do whatever it takes to make me happy. Gives me a good reason to go see my dad in Houston too!

    He can hook you up on ARP head studs and boss head gaskets etc that you need to do the install.

    Any news on how much of your original engine is salvageable?

    yes, that out of the box hellion setup with its ginormous 67mm snail!:bowdown: I couldn't even find the single kit on hellions web page last I looked. If one could be had dirt cheap and modified it'd be worthwhile. Now if someone could slap a 76mm bullseye on one...

    I emailed Hellion a while back about that and they said they were holding production of the single kit due to overwhelming demand for the twin kit but would likely eventually discontinue the single kit.
    Last I saw AM still had the single kit for sale on their website.

    They are not made anymore they are used only and he was talking about my car lol
    The pre-turbo hot side from Hellion is junk just needs some reworking with some 3" mandrel bends and pipe ;)

    finally got the car back to my dealership and confirmed what ford said, the engine oil cooler i installed got damaged by a rock or something. put a nice little hole in it. anyways like JUIC3D said its been a while since an e85 turbo car let go. Ive got my insurance company involved at this point, itd sure be nice if the insurance picked up some of the cost of the aluminator. of course with the holidays they are a week out from even looking at it. all of this has made me realize the mustang is getting a bit past DD status and i could sure use a truck with towing capabilities. Looking at ecoboost f150s, anyone got experience with em?

    Oil cooler got damaged... That sucks. What did it actually do? Over heat the oil, or did it poke a hole & lose oil?
