    Curious what it takes to fit the Lightning blower to a '01 Mustang GT?

    Internet is spotty, or my searching is. But from what I'm gathering it's not plug and play. Either need a spacer/adapter and TVS lower on a custom lower.


    I only ask because my coworker has the Mustang and I picked up a blower for nothing.
    He's been talking like he wants to do something to the car, on a HS budget. So I figure I'd get the ball rolling for him with boost.

    *amendment


    So it's too much for a HS kid to stomach putting this on his Mustang.


    What do I do to fit it to the Focus? :p

    :suspicious:


    Just looking at what map I can find, looks like if I keep rotor speed low; almost feasible, custom parts aside.

    hmmm, boosted high compression Focus that you can't hear a blower whine. I may have to look into this more.

    i dont think it will fit without alot of modification due to the lightning being a 5.4l vs the Gt being a 4.6 ive seen a few lighting blowers on ebay for 300-500 bucks
