Default 87 Thunderbird Turbo Coupe w/ 5.0 T3/T4 turbo

I drive this car often, but I'm not (too)hard on it. The only time I have had it to the track was the last race of the year in 08 and I had wastegate problems (sounds like a typical excuse doesn't it) The wastegate was stuck at 4lbs (soft spring, couldn't adjust) and it ran high 13s. I brought it home and fixed the adjustment bolt on the wastegate and the car will now easily run middle 12s on 10lbs of boost. I never ran the car over 10lbs because I think the 24lb injectors need to be upgraded before the boost is turned up. This is a factory 5 speed car so the rear gears are 3:55 which works well with the turbo engine.

The body and undercarriage are in great condition, no rust and few dings, some flaws in the paint, but it is VERY presentable. The interior is very nice also with the raven cloth, which is two tone dark and medium gray. Everything works except the air conditioning, but it is complete just needs charged. The tachometer has been changed to a V8 tach, but retains the turbo boost gauge.

I drive this car just about every weekend and never have any problems with it, this is a very well built car. All of the headlights, turn signals, marker lights, fog light and interior lights work. The horn, cruise, stereo, heater, windows, locks etc. work on this car, it is not a project but a completed turn key driver.

I have had lots of Turbo Coupes (over 40) and this has been the most fun out of all of them.

Nice post, but you forgot a very important piece of information.

That's great, but it needs to be on this page.
