The great dedate while I have been building my car was that single turbos don't work with cubic inches. I guess that's the same people who say blow through carbs don't work. I know it's a Chevy but it's 500ci with a single 106mm. I'm thinking my 449" with a 88mm will be fine for a street car that runs 11's. You tell me if big cubic inches don't like single turbos, I would think they do considering the 1/8th mile wheelies!!!

Daaaammmmnnnnn!!!!!!! Ah man I've alway wanted to play with turbos. That does it for me.

I've had some plans to build an old 300 straight six Ford for some time. I know a guy who races one and he said it really messes with some of the Chevy's boys heads when they know they are up against an old Ford six.

By the way, that second video, they are only using a 900cfm carb, it shows what can be done with some boost.
