    Post yours or others moderate to heavily power modded MN12 car pics here

    There are probably plenty out there ... Denis post the other day about the 427 big blockThunderbird on YT gave me a nudge to post this .
    So , how about people post some MN12/FN10 model power plant pics , info , vid links etc .
    There has to be plenty out there , great promotion and involvement for the club , there were and are alot of members with some great set ups , I am sure there are plenty of lurkers visiting the website that would enjoy seeing what can be done with the MN12 other than its great looks.

    I didn't know the SCCOA had a post like this in one thread , will have to go take a look , do you have the title.
    This is for the Ontario forum , to encourage promotion of and involvement in the SCCOO club .

    Ah, you mean like a sub-sub-sub forum. That might work, maybe, if you can find enough local SC owners with those cars, I suppose. Pretty quiet as it is, tho, which is why i mentioned tccoa: https://www.tccoa.com/threads/ontario-chapter.110485/

    Good luck

    Well, just a thread that has a lot of high performance power plants in the one spot , I found a post on a turbo club in regards to how much power a factory 351W block can hold , there were plenty of posts that offered very good information including the year of the block, type of power adding system and weak links etc .
    Not everyone wants to stick with a stock power plant, and many interested lurkers would not know where to start off or even if its possible to do a lot of the mods and swaps that have been done .
    Way too many MN12 cars have been decommissioned because of blown head gaskets .
    I will post my old SC twin 5.8 setup when I gather some pics, that car was never completed due mainly to health reasons and it also rusted away sitting in my driveway ,but if the stars are aligned after the teal 93 is completed and the 87 twin turbo 351W is put back together I will attempt to finish what I started a long time ago, most likely in the newer 94 and up model , I have Wayne Ing's complete short block here , now with a set of Dart Sr heads so will most likely use that , shooting for 1000 at the crank .

    A few pics of what was started many years ago , I think it was early 2000s? Looks pretty raw in these pics, a lot of it as you can see was more for fit , not finish.
    Turbonetics H3 Turbos for final set up , good for aprx 550hp each on their ear.. , Spearco core, custom tanks and inlets to fit , Turbonetics Race gates , mid 70s 351W block 8.25-1 , jackets half filled , studded etc, Speed Pro pistons, Eagle rods , Dart Sr heads ,FMS X303 cam, FMS GT40 lower with custom upper to fit under the factory hood , can't remember if they are 60lb or 66lb injectors , DFI fuel injection system , Buick 200R4 tranny , Art Carr ~~~ adapter to mate the Buick tranny to the Ford [ had to heavily tweak it to make it fit properly ] , all the headers and down pipes are custom , 316L stainless for the headers and flanges and down pipes .
    Car rotted to the ground in my driveway , my bad , dirt driveway and canadian winters.. should have had it inside , but once some of the other thunderbird projects are done I may be motivated to pick up another MN12 chassis and finish this , was shooting for a daily driver , fully loaded , and a thousand hp at the crank .
    So there is my mess .. anyone else want to throw in some pics and a bit of a write up of their cars or others they have seen .. Dave N ? and others .. I don't know where Wayne Ing is these days , but if anyone has any pics of his [ I don't remember taking any when I built the turbo system for his car and can not find the ones that Wayne sent to me ] post them up here .. anyone else ?? .
    This forum is dying a slow death .. give it a bit of adrenaline .

    Most if it's on FB anymore. It would be up to the owners to post their stuff here, but there are some serious builds going on. Idk who's stuff is actually running atm though.

    I got one crazy one

    I have a twin turbo 4.5 1990 sc but I will have to have someone post a pic as I am not that good at doing that....Rich
    Too many cars,too little time to drive them. Anything less than 500 cubes is a small block. If you slow down in life you will get run over..

    Im not sure if this qualifies as a serious build or not, but I am currently building a 427 sbf twin turbo setup. I hope to have it running next summer.

    Derek , love that monster cube set up [ MOW block ? ] , headers look like they will flow enough for well past the 1200+hp range.
    A bit disappointing that you passed on the other single system you put together , I was really looking forward to see how it did .. I am sure it would have made some great and streetable power ... cast iron manifolds are heavy but they also would have been quiet.. great for a sleeper set up .. I hope someone is getting some use out of those pcs .
    Anyway, always like your work, looks great , should be an absolute animal .

    Hopefully more will post , excellent stuff so far , I doubt though if anyone will object to pics of their cars from car shows/meets being posted as they are already showing publicly what is there .
    It would be great to see more set ups from mild to wild, upgraded blowers , IC's , from SC to turbo swaps on the V6 , wasn't there a guy in Cali that had a pretty nice street V6 twin turbo set up as well , can't remember his name but it looked pretty sharp , would be a great car to post here.

    If you look at the pic of the three cars sitting there you will see a stock 35th, the second one is a 557 big block with a few power adders, and the third one is the twin turbo car. Now for speed, we have gotten the big block into the single digit 1/4 mile time and now it is pushing the limits of having some linen out back. The twin has yet to be run hard at the track, but with everything it has you should be looking at something even faster yet. That is for this year to work out. I am still playing with getting everything 100 % on it but now it is tucked away for the winter. You asked on those turbo size, they are a pair of nelson racing 68's for the boost.

    its a SHP block with main studs. The goals for the project are 700-1000whp and its built accordingly (at least the motor is anyways). and yeah, someone picked up the hot side i previously built several months ago.
