turbo bracket engine ???

Can a turbo motor be consistent enough for bracket racing? After finding out that my crank is cracked,I'm wondering if there is a better way to make big power without the big cubes ,big heads , big cam stuff I have been using up to this point?? any thoughts would be appriciated. Steve

Turbo cars are great as long as you have a great fuel injection unit, a progressive boost controller, and a data logger. the only downfall is turbo cars make a lot of heat and need a lot of tuning and the more power you wanna make the more important it is for your tune to be spot on.

Blow thru stuff is good but if you want to have a consistant car..fuel injection is neccesary. What were you thinking for a combo motor size? Turbo size?
