This is one of my jacketed air/water intercoolers. It has the jacket welded on, 3/4" inlets and outlets, and internal baffles. This has the cast turbo outlet adapter welded on and the inside of the weld ground flush. This allows it to fit the stock Garret T-3 turbo that comes on the Merkurs and Early t_birds.

Machined Turbo Inlet Adapter.  Made for repositioning the turbo inlet after rotating the stock turbo to fit the Thunderbird Turbocoupe Intercooler (below) $33 shipped.  This part is machined from a 4" aluminum billet and comes with the proper bolts and a gasket.  Note that these pieces are no longer hard anodized.
Thunderbird Intercooler modified for use on a 2.3L engine with the stock Garrett turbo (Stock Merkur.)  This is a custom casting that I have welded onto the intercooler. The casting is welded on using a mock up of the engine for a precise fit.  The inside weld is ground flush, and then it is painted w/ high temp black. $165 shipped. Currently out of stock.

Ford Taurus SHO Stainless Steel Bolt Set.  $36 shipped.  The kit that I am offering comes with a 64 piece fastener set in stainless steel. Bolts, flat washers, and lockwashers are all stainless steel and the button head style bolts (similar to the ones in the middle of the valve cover) can be polished to a high luster using a compound and buffing wheel (see the pic below.) The bolts included in the kit have a plain stainless finish, but I will polish the bolt heads for $10 more. The bolts are bagged and come with an instruction diagram showing their locations. The set includes bolts for the front engine bracket, the intake manifold brackets, idle air control motor, DIS module , throttle body, fuel rail hold down, cam cover, alternator bracket, and others. I do not include the intake manifold to head bolts, as these should be torqued in sequence and are not as visible as the others. I have tried to include all of the most visible fasteners on the SHO's Yamaha engine. Click for more info
