Hi my name is Brandon and this is my first post here. This is my AWD 1988 Mustang with full Audi A6 drivetrain and suspension front and rear. The motor is a 2.7t and it was bi-turbo but now its single rear mounted Garrett GT3071R ball bearing. Getting it running I used the automatic to keep variables down as far as wiring(there was a ton of wiring) Now it has an 01e 6 speed that i rebuilt but the motor is all still stock internally with 153k miles. I'm hoping to get to the track soon with the new manual setup. On the stock turbos and around a stock tune i ran a 13.44 1/4 on the Auto(the car the motor came out of would run mid 15's when it was new) so im hoping to up the boost and try for mid to low 11's this year.

Here it a link to my Youtube 1/4 mile video:

1/4 mile FoxbAudi best time 2014

Here is my single turbo build video Part 1

you can see I've done a bit since last year in the engine bay ;) Before is below This is my puppy Turbo the Samoyed :P

here is where the new turbo is mounted

This whole floor is 6061 .062" aluminum and its there to cover the fuel cell and to cover the turbo because that bastard is LOUD lol Its also completely removable and carpet is all on with snaps.

If you guys want to see the full build its here: FOXBAUDI BUILD TREAD

I'll post videos when i get back to the track with this manual single turbo setup ;)

This is the fox I was expecting to see:

Nice work. Why a rear mount turbo, space constraints? How is the lag?

Mostly to free up space in the engine bay and to move some weight back, lag isnt bad, around full boost at 4k

impressive. So what is the goal with this car? a particular type of motorsport, or just to have something different?

Well, that's something I can get behind...

Also, a wire monster threw up in your car:

Lol there's no real goal, just to have fun with and be able to run a decent 1/4 mile ;) The wiring is getting a well deserved few days of organization and clean up right now, trust me there's only about 10% of the wiring that was from the donor car.

Wow, this is only a few orders of magnitude less ridiculous than Ben_Modified's builds... (That's a compliment, as you'll see next time he updates one of his cars)

Finally, something to do with all those leftover Audis lying around. Except usually their bodies are the best part of them...

Awesome project, can't wait to see more.

It was a 5.slow when I got it, it's a standard 88 LX, but I converted it to a ford 2.3 turbo with megasquirt then I went to this setup. I still have the 2.3 and t-5 that might go in something else eventually. But thanks guys for to positive feedback ;)

So I think this goes under one of the most unique builds I've seen.

This is every bit of crazy and I LOVE it, what made you choose the audi drivetrain?

Pwndbymustang New Reader

Thanks guys! I went with this drivetrain cuz I know it quite well and my DD is an A6 2.7t 6speed so it's got most of the same parts.
