    Build notes:

    Did the install over three days with aircougar, taking out time. swap went very well. one problem was we over tightened and broke one of the bolts for the water cross over tube in the head. when filing it down to re-drill and tap we got into the head alittle. cause it to leak when we started the car. but using the thicker taurus o-ring and waterpump sealer it was taken care of. I also had problems with the upper radiator hose. Mine was folded over at some point which lead to it failing adbrutly, it got coolant everywhere. replaced with a used hose and that one split also but didn't leak as bad. I believe the next one has held up so far, but have the samco hose to replace it with.

    notes on the turbo install are many and long so I will not get into that here. its all in the linked build thread above.

    1998.5 Contour SVT
    ~124,000 miles on body (actual motor unknown)
    Port-matched, 3L block, 3L heads, SVT cams, SVT UIM, SVT TB
    ~44,000 miles on 2005 3L Taurus motor

    Install was straight forward for the most part, minus some part issues Car is running good without a tune, but will get as soon as I can. Car tends to pulse/surge under light throttle or coasting. It may be due to plugs or wires. The car was also extremely raspy with headers, no resonator, high flow cat, stock pipes, and mufflers. I don't recommend this setup for anyone. I placed a magnaflow muffler in the resonator spot and it made it much more livable. 2.5" pipes with straight pipes instead of mufflers maybe next.

    Here is my build thread:

    Build is going slow but nearing completion. As stated in my thread, shift cables have presented a problem, but nothing too major. The only reason my build is taking so long is due to money issues and parts being back ordered.

    Apologies if I forgot anything.

    Stock from the y-pipe back - sounds nice. Probably going to get a test pipe and a new resonator before tuning.
