  T3 Stainless gasket..
Posted by: Kuch - 01-16-2021, 10:21 PM - No Replies

I was looking for a larger opening turbo mount gasket and found this on RA. The opening on it measures 2.5"w x 1.8"h and you can see the difference in size when overlayed on a stock T3 gasket. This wold allow us to open up an E6 opening even more for better flow than a stock replacement gasket would. It's a Mahle F7414, thought I wold pass it along.

  Chrome Valve cover...
Posted by: Kuch - 01-13-2021, 06:12 PM - No Replies

I am a fan of chrome in the engine bay, maybe some of my old car instincts, but I have seen a few pics online of a factory steel chrome valve cover on some 2.3's. was this an old FMS version, or did someone simply chrome out a factory steel cover? I was thinking of maybe trying one on my 88 TC with some chromed out front cam belt covers for a different look. Thoughts

  After 18 years without a TC.. FINALLY
Posted by: skwsproul - 01-03-2021, 04:47 AM - Replies (1)

18 years ago, I parted with a silver 87 auto TC.. Ever since that day, i have wanted a black manual but for some reason they eluded me. Every once in a while i would see one and it would either be to far gone or out of budget. At long last I found a solid, running black manual TC.. Well actually, my wife found it on FB. She was snickering to her friend how she shouldn't show me and when she did... Message him, i want that car.. On to the car.. zero rust and all original. Every receipt for the car, manuals, wheel locks, you name it. Its not perfect, has some paint issues which most will polish out but i may need to get the trunk lid painted.. The factory head unit is gone, i will likely find one just for originality but it will have an aftermarket system in it. Interior is fair, at least everything is there and everything works. Ill post pics along the way but Im so damn happy to be posting about my TC again! Anyhow, hello everyone and thanks in advance for all the knowledge i am going to need.

  Ported Gnari pics...
Posted by: Kuch - 01-02-2021, 09:18 PM - Replies (3)

I posted the pics of the stock Gnari to a stock E6 earlier, here is the final porting pics of the Gnari compared to a stock E6. The stock outlet on the E6 is very difficult to see through both the #3 and the #4 inlets and you can see that a wood dowel I had will not go through the ports. The ported Gnari passes the dowel through very easily with room to wiggle around each port. I think with the extra 1/2" extension on the Gnari really allows a good port job to be done compared to an E6. I also tried to grind in some flow diverter to the Gnari like the E6 has stock. Also, as I plan on ceramic coating this manifold, I ground down the casting bosses that were on the bottom as well as on the tops of the mounting bolts. I tried to smooth them out to have as little hard edges as possible for a better coating finish.

1. Make-a-Wish Foundation at a national level = $500 (of which was currently timed to be matched 2 for one - an additional $1000 by an anonymous donor!)

  Christmas present to myself
Posted by: BradM - 12-29-2020, 10:34 PM - Replies (13)

I've been stalking this forum for information but now I need to join it. 87-88 TC's have been on my bucket list. As a teenager I worked at a shop in the late 70's and became a Ford guy. I've built a '68 Monterey, a '69 F100, and a '65 Comet and honestly, I got bored with the technology. I wanted to try EFI and boost. I found a one-owner car with lots of maintenance records (he changed the oil every 2000 miles) and I drove it home Christmas eve. Great winter project and I must say, NATO rocks. Happy to be a member.
