On3 Forward Facing Turbo System
On 3 Performance is proud to release the newest 2nd generation Mustang GT 2v turbo system with forward facing headers. After almost a year of developing this new On3 turbo kit, they are stocked and ready to start shipping. On the same boost level they ran with the previous 1st generation kit, they picked up almost 30rwhp/50ft. lbs. mid-range. Most of this is due to the new design and being able to spool the turbo quicker. On 6psi, they are making full boost in the upper 2000rpm range, that’s around 700-800rpm quicker than before. There is nothing like turbocharged power on your modular 4.6 Mustang, bolt on and double the factory horsepower. They were able to run less boost on the 2v and make better torque numbers than a 99 Cobra running more boost on a centrifugal blower. They have been able to manage 12.13 @ 120mph on our car spinning fairly bad with a 2.0 60’. That trap speed is a clear indicator of a simple 11 second car
By designing a header that comes directly forward, On 3 was able to eliminate about 4’+ of tubing pre-turbo. This also allowed them to route the tubing for the intercooler differently as well as the downpipe. The ground clearance was improved as well as it was never an issue but why not improve it if they can? In order to drop weight with the kit, they also went to aluminum intercooler tubing over the stainless, this lost almost 15lbs from the 1st generation kit. Its also a shorter and more direct path which also has shown benefits. In addition to the turbo kit, they added a few other features to make the install easier and prevent issues down the road. On 3 Performance designed a laser cut intercooler bracket kit that is manufactured just down the road from their shop. While they were at it, they also had a turbo support cut that allows the weight of the turbo system to be tied back to the engine. This way the weight of the pre-turbo/turbo is supported by the bracket instead of the actual tubing.
Each of the On 3 performance turbo systems come with their 70mm turbocharger which is rated up to 700hp. Currently the 2v shop car has around 20,000 miles and 3 years of daily driving year-round. It has proven the turbos durability over time and if maintained and installed correctly its unbeatable for the money.
Each header is constructed of 3mm wall mild steel which has been proving over the last few years its durability on daily driven cars. From the headers to the turbo is 304 stainless all the way from the turbo back. They also went to a slip fit downpipe instead of v-bands. This allows for more adjustment due to the lap bands which is really needed. There is movement in the way the turbo can sit so this allows the installer to be able to get a better fit.
As mentioned before, the cold side now is made from aluminum instead of the stainless to drop weight. Not only that, but it will also help with dissipating heat, and will allow for slightly cooler IAT’s. Each tube on the On 3 Performance cold side is bead rolled and uses t-bolt clamps for a perfect seal and to prevent blowing a coupler off under boost.
– Perfect fit for AUTOMATIC transmissions
– Retains factory accessories – Air conditioning and Power steering
– Quicker spooling
– Forward facing turbo headers
– Less exhaust connections pre-turbo– Turbo support bracket/Intercooler brackets included
- Better fit on the SN body cars to clear coil packs
– More simple design to eliminate tubing
– Easier to install and adjust the kit
– Maximum ground clearance
On 3 Performance has shop cars with each of their kits on them and the mod motors respond to boost very well. They are so reliable, and drivability doesn’t get much better. It’s a good feeling on a 90 degree day to put the windows up and crank the air conditioning to full blast. Whether sitting in traffic, cruising, no heat issues and still drives like stock.
In order to run the turbo system, you will need to run the On 3 Performance turbo tubular suspension kit. Also there will be several upgrades you will need to make for fuel delivery and air. Those upgrades are available and you can select them from the list when checking out.
