Any updates on this?
Still moving along. Won't see much till spring. Ran into some major issues with my turbo builder, but I will have some smaller updates soon i.e. wheels, tires, exhaust, vinyl, etc.

Few people have been asking about my new wheels. I have held off posting because they aren't quite ready in final form. BUT, here is some new photos of the Stang with the wheels and with most of my smaller additions I have completed while in a holding pattern on the turbo kit (waiting on the builder).

Few things. The rear wheels poke a bit and I expected that and it's part of the look, but I haven't done any camber corrections to tuck them a bit more. The reason? Well, in NA form I am square 285/35/19. Once the turbos get mounted the rears are changing out to 295 or 305 Nitto R2s. That will clean up the gap and keep the tread down. The fronts are getting some spacers so I can put the wheel caps on the front and bring them completely flush (honestly they are pretty nice as is).

I added new vinyl to the mirror caps. Looks so dope. I also updated the corner vinyl on the headlights and taillights. The old tail light vinyl was matte black and actually covered too much of the lenses making it so you couldn't see the brake lights from the side. The new vinyl is gloss black like everything else and is shorter to allow full visibility of the brake light. Now, the one thing that didn't go to plan was my roof wrap. It tore on install so money down the drain. Oh, well I actually like how it all turned out and maybe the roof is something I will rethink. Depends on how I feel the incoming carbon fiber hood would look with or without the roof wrapped.

Enjoy the photos!

Just so everyone has an idea of what the turbo kit will look like I am posting this photo from a guy in Europe who did his own custom top mount twin turbo. His is an S197 (same engine), but his turbos arrangement , cutom upper intake manifold, and layout is pretty much identical to what mine will look like. Again, not my car in the photo.

Are you going to put engine badges on once the TTs are installed? 3.7TT? THATs something you don’t see everyday. Will give EB, 5.0 and SS drivers pause and/or intimidate them...

Awesome build! I have done lots of the same things that you have (cloth to leather seats, grille delete, infotainment screen upgrade, etc.) and I love it all. I love that silver, fitment is awesome too!

I have "Twin Turbo" badges for the side panels that match the color scheme of the badges I have on the decklid and grille. My badges are custom and say "Cyclone" so I am definitely letting people know it's a v6. A boosted Cyclone more than gives pause to a NA coyote...The Cyclone is really slept on.
