yeah it is pretty much the same. i think the turbo on mustang is a little bigger b/c the s10 only made 450 on 13 psi. here is the dyno graph of the mustang.

ah you! sorry I just had a crazy moment there and wanted to see what you'd say.

I do that a lot.

GOOD answer though. It seems all too many people DON'T know that.

since the move to AL on and off of a trailer i decided that the engine and tranny were to low as well. so i fixed it. this week i re-drilled the front plates, modified and re-drilled the mid-plate, and completely rebuild the tranny cross-member.

new tranny cross-member


and now the oil pan is exactly even with with the factory sub-frame.
