73 Pangra Project
« on: May 05, 2003, 06:42:14 PM »
Here is a pic of the Motor I just installed in my Pangra. I am currently writing up a spec sheet on it. The SVO T5 was installed as well as the Aluminum driveshaft. See my web page in the personal web page section for details

Oh so cool, lots of work in there. Just a question, Did you have to make new motor mounts or find some from other vehicle? thanks

Hey Brad, what bell housing are you using for the T-5?  Is it the later hydraulic clutch ones or the earlier cable or even the T-4 bellhousing that Bugsturbo has mentioned?  I'm doing this swap soon as my T-5  came out of an 87 T-coupe(have hydraulic clutch bell housing).  A picture of the other side would do wonders for me.  How did you switch to the 10 spline?  Was it just a disk swap or did you have to change the pressure plate as well?

Paul, The bellhousing is a 1984 SVO bell with the cable type pull for the throughout. As for the 10 spline  you will need a 10 spline clutch disc thats fits you flywheel and pressure plate and thats it. The T5 is a 10 spline. I dont know if this pic helps but here is the drivers side.

Hey Brad, what turbo is that?  T3 or T4 .....or maybe even T3T4 hybred?  What are the A/R numbers on it do you know? I'm kinda into turbos a bit.

 The turbo is a T4 with a .69 AR and an "N" turbine wheel. Its probably not the " best" turbo for this combo but it works well.

the  hot side A/R sounds good....but it really depends on what the compressor side is ;D   A full T4 is a fairly large turbo for a 2.0 liter engine....but obviously Miller knew what he was doing! I was going to do a full boggie 2.3 in mine, Essliger head, stainless header and a T3T4 hybred with a stage III .63 hot side and a T04 "E" 50 trim compressor.... ..a set up good for over 400 hp   But i changed my mind, then i was going to twin turbo my 351, bought two T3's rebuilt them and changed my mind again.....deci ded a N/A 351 with EFI would be easiest and best. Here is a pic of the turbos

 Jeff, I agree this T4 would not be my first choice of turbo's from the selection "today" to choose from. One of the nice things about the T4 exhaust housing is that its a center flange housing and allows the whole turbo to hang lower off the manifold than a T3 exhaust housing would ( which is an offset and raises the whole turbo "up", off the manifold). The T3/T4 stage III is what I use on my 2.5 Aluminum head motor in the Green Pinto, However, If I was doing it again I would opt for a T66 ballberring turbo which has a better compressor map for my motor than the T3/T4.

 There were a few guys asking how I adapted the T5 to the 2L block. Here is a pic of the adaption. I used studs in the bell and notched it low for a bolt into the block.
