Im not much of a turbo guy buy it looks like the turbo set up was done very nice and cleanThat is a good looking bird, sounds wierd for me to say it but i even like the wheels on it. Reminds me of the high school days. The only thing i would remove is the fog lights in da grill. Other than that I wouldnt change a thing.

That actually does look good. Someone did and extraordinary job on their installation. It is extremely clean and actually doesn't take away from the car. The only call out I see is on the shaker. Nice touch!

I got a responce from Craig Hendrickson, the "H" in H-O racing.

Thanks for the heads up.  Looks like that one would be a fun ride!

I have my own T-F Bird

I gotta say that looks like a clean install . I would put a turbo hood on though ,as I think it look awesome with the 77 nose .
I bet a quality turbo intercooler setup on a 400 would be awesome .Wish I was a machinest somedays

Does anyone know if there was an update as to whether or not those kits are going to be reproduced?
