    The Quarterhorse can do I think 4 programs if you wire up the selector. I think it can switch on the fly too.

    The spacer is more useful for heat insulation than anything else. It helps keep the upper from heat soaking so the air charge is cooler. The runner length change probably doesn't affect things all that much. You'll need at least a 3/8 spacer to clear the fuel rail anyway.

    Uhh, guys... I found a used mustang turbo kit for $300, only thing missing is the intercooler, apparently. https://columbus.craigslist.org/pts/...816007086.html

    Remember... you do want to actually drive this right? Project creep is a real thing.

    A supercharger would be better. More low end torque. Turbo lag is a thing, especially if the turbo isn't properly sized. Turbos are also prone to bearing failure if the oil supply isn't right. Run them dry or dirty and the bearings wipe out, then you're SOL. A wiggle test on the turbine shaft will usually tell you enough about it to make a judgement but if its way too cheap its probably for a reason.

    Here's some beefy injectors (which I think fit) and a lot of parts that don't, but somebody here might be able to use. There's an ON3 turbo kit for a 2V 4.6 pretty cheap if anyone is interested, guy says "needs waste gate(s)" but I don't know/don't think it comes with the turbo either. https://columbus.craigslist.org/pts/...802476483.html

    probably means blow off valve. Most turbos have an internal wastegate, but the BOV is needed to keep the turbo from beating the crap out of itself every time you shut the throttle after a pull. Unless he means the actuator, thats external. The wastegate is a flappy thing inside the turbine (exhaust side) housing. Basically as it opens, it lets exhaust bypass the turbine in order to control boost pressure.

    I would stay the naturally aspirated route. A turbo system is going to be a significant amount of work, with the risk of reliability issues.

    I am currently in the planning stages of a push-rod 302 for my '90 LX. I wanted to do a Coyote swap, but at the end of the day even though the engine is cheap, the rest of the swap is not.

    I have looked at a number of OTS cam grinds, and I had at one time actually settled on the Anderson N41 (mine is not a fuel mileage build). However, a custom ground cam from Ed Curtis (FlowTech Induction) is only $400. Given the nature of your build, I would definitely say that is your best option. A little more expensive, but if the performance and especially drive-ability is even marginally better, an additional $70-$150 is a small price to pay.
