View Full Version : Parts you'd like to see made for the SC?

I'm intrested in designing up some SC/mn12 parts and having them made. I figured I'd ask here to see if anyone has any suggestions as to what they'd like to see.


I'd like to stay away from anything too technical for the time being. I know the sc's, and the mn12's in gerneal kind of got left behind in the aftermarket scene so I figured I'd see what kind of need there is for some parts that were possibly discontinued or some parts were just never made, period. I know a few machine shop owners and local sc/mn12 guys that probably wouldnt mind using their cars as a test mule (I'll have one soon aswell).

let me know what you think. I WILL be designing a sheetmetal intake for my turbo buildup, but not real sure if I'd bother making more than one (unless there is enough intrest)

A good replacement for the hydraulic clutch line as I can't source one anywhere......

good brake replacement setup.( mastercylinder and booster setup, and a way to use mustang brake upgrade kits

A "bolt in" turbo kit

Or at the very least The hot side plumbing

A new intake manifold that allows the M90 or Autorotor to fit and cleans things up with intake restrictions currently experienced.

A new lower radiator hose that routes things so it doesn't have to come off to remove the belt.

Thanks buddies.Why not try to kill what little you may
have.

Randy,

There may be a lot that is going on with some of that stuff, but if the general SC populations doesn't know about it, is it really going on? I for one have heard nothing on the manifold nor an electric water pump option. It wouldn't be too much to guess that others haven't as well. Around here, if you're not on the "in" with the people making the stuff, you just don't know it is out there. Period. If that stuff is being made or going to be made, some advertising needs to be done so that EVERYONE knows. Information hording will kill what we have a lot faster than information sharing.

Last time I checked, you were out of the manifold making business because you were giving them away for around $1200 when it took you 400+ hours to make one!

Information that a few have does not help the masses.

didn't mean to stir anything up here. I appologize

I'll have to get ahold of a few of the mentioned parts to measure up before I model 'em, so I'll keep ya's posted. Keep the ideas coming.

the downtubes, clutch line and possibly a turbo kit would all be doable (and possibly the manifold, if I can figure out a way to keep cost down). As far as the waterpump and brake setup, that might be a bit of a stretch as the parts will either be welded parts or hogged out... casting, in the short term, isn't worth it as far as I'm concerned unless we got ALOT of pre-orders for said product (or find a company with $$$ to take the design and run with it, but I'm not holding my breath). I talked with the owner of a local shop yesterday and he's very intrested so it looks like we may see some stuff happening in the near future. Like I said, I'm going to track down some parts/measurments from a few local guys and start getting the ball rolling.


Damon, I'm planning on doing a turbo setup on an SC (when I find decent local one for sale/trade). I was thinking about just using the mustang intake and calling it a day, but figured that with a custom intake, I can control where the inlet is, which may help in freeing up some room or atleast reducing sharp/harsh bends in the charge piping. Once I get a design set, making duplicates wouldnt be very hard if I can find a place to weld them up at a good price. Like I said, it may not be worth it to make more than one.... but figured I'd mention it.

SC STEVE-
IM IN THE BUFFALO AREA (LOCKPORT) AND WOULD LIKE TO SEE WHAT YOU ARE THINKING IN PERSON. I ALSO HAVE A HUGE COLLECTION OF PARTS IN MY BASEMENT THAT I WOULD BE WILLING TO DONATE TO ANY FABRICATION DEVELOPMENTS THAT MAY COME OF THIS. EMAIL ME HERE AND WE'LL GET TOGETHER.

Actually I have two designs myself for a turbo manifold..One using a stock SC lower and one using the 3.8 lower witha box upper. Was just curious what you came up with

from carztuff.com

but no reply


id personally like to have a stainless steel 3rd brake light cover with the SC logo, and the Tbird logo cut out, so when the brakes are applied the bird or sc shines through.

heres a link to a pic of where the idea came from.

id really like a set, so let me know.

working on a lower manifold with you in mind cut top off and weld in 6 runners equil lenght to central location.

it will work on inverted m112 A/R or to mount a tb unit such as for turbo kit

runners will be in air not touching bottom of intake so they wont get heat soaked from oil spalshing on lower intake and a water passage in rear of intake so we can get better cooling to back of heads.

also so everyone can see thet the inverted makes better power than the stock setup due to faster boost build up and less restriction better air flow from entering at middle of maniflold . and easy of m112 conversion and A/R just a thought.

I'd like to see an m112 kit or giant heavy duty supercharger of doom mounted on the 3.8-- you know, something really ridiculous that puts out like 20psi of boost... without restriction-- you know, see 20 even after going through the intercooler.

Edit: How many PSI can the stock bottom end handle? Can we see the insane amount of boost that the supra guys see?
Maybe 30psi. I'm just throwing out numbers because I don't know.

Maybe just for the novelty of it. I don't know.

The M90 puts out 20 psi of boost...

The_Ghost
09-10-2006, 01:41 AM
I mean something that'll put out 20PSI and be able to see that into the car rather than the 11 or so we see in stock form. And go beyond that.

What I meant was, whatever will deliver the greatest amount of boost possible for the 3.8 bottom end to take and not explode.

So then you want an Autorotor, :p Already produced for the cars

as well as a few companies make aftermarket pullies

Yep Magnum Powers already has the springs... took me about 15 minutes to swap mine out...

Lest your spring arm be cracked or broken. That is why I would like a new one.

09-11-2006, 09:25 PM
one for early and late models, that seals well.

Also, a travel limiting mod for the motor mount bracket, and or torque strap kit with no vib issues.

I think both would sell well and are surely do-able.

Cheers

I had no clue that they were ever made, so that makes it tuff to buy it. ;) I most likely didn't even own the car then. I don't want to modify my tensioner either and redirect the belt, so that’s not an option. It's mostly just to delete the compressor and free up some weight.

If someone has one that doesn't want it PM me with an offer.

I agree I have the belt, but I have been too lazy to actually change it because of this. I might try to shove a potato in there or something to try and stop the fluids. :D
