and also make sure that your exhaust is upgraded from stock, otherwise you will be the proud owner of a melted exploding hybrid. the stocker flows something like 195 cfm and the T Bird runs more in the 300's, there needs to be an easy route for that new extra hot exhaust to leave...otherwsie bye bye hybrid
the lack of an escape route for said higher flow/mass of pressure/exhaust gas=a rise in exhaust side temperature of the turbo. you know how restricted the exhaust side of the ihi turbo is anyways, now combine that with an EVEN HIGHER amount of spent exhaust trying to push it's way out a stock downpipe, it's a recipe for disaster, one of which I know firsthand, EGT temps were out of control causing a meltdown
