Hey guys and gals, I just found your forum and joined. Thought I would take a second, say hello and post a pic of my latest project. Here is my 1979 Capri RS Turbo. It has the factory 2.3l carb turbo for now and the incredibly crappy 4 speed overdrive transmission. I just did the sn95 brake conversion all around and added the 18x9 kazera wheels. They may or may not stay. I got a deal in them so they stay until some more money rolls in. For a while I went back and forth about a turbo 5.0 but I like the 2.3 turbo.. I used to have an XR4TI that I really liked a lot. Plans for this will be a turbo coupe motor and 5 speed. Any other Capri turbo's here??

no capri here but i just converted my 79 mustang from that 2 barrel bullcrap that ford put on there when in ran it ran great but here in az druring the summer under boost it would catch a backfire and smoke the 500 dollar carb set up so i went all out on the swap with a 5 speed and 8.8 to boot and its been worth every penny.
