I reworded some of the questions that didn't get answered.
Your build can be accomplished with a variety of parts. The difference between some of these routes can be $1,000's of $$$. Hence, the importance for good answers to my questions.
Have a good day!
See quotes below:tell me a hp you want and a list of parts you have and i put you a combo together that will work. you are looking at blow thur set up right.
1.It would be mainly a street toy say 90% of the time with the occasional pass down the strip just to see what it would run
2.For a budget lets say around $7000.00 for starters
3.I would run a factory 2 bolt block (can't remember what casting #) with edelbrock victor jr. heads, victor 460 intake if possible thats all i got as far as spare parts.
4.Maintenance i dont mind so i wouldn't be above tearing it down once a year or every six months to check everything
5.I dont take a lot of long trips so it would be limited to short trips 25 miles and less maybe th occasional 100 mile drive nothing over that though
Here is a chart that gives you approximate turbo size for a given engine displacement and desired HP. Email me for a larger version of the file (it's downsized by Photobucket).I would like to make about 800 horsepower with a production block i have the heads an intake and block but as far as anything else to support the engine we will have to build or buy parts wanted to make a wicked little street car just to play with.
800 horsepower streetable engine D1VE block edelbrock aluminum vic jr. heads victor460 intake and i wanna run a solid roller camshaft and a big single or twins whatever will have better street manners and spool relatively quickly. and i do plan on going blow thru style carburetortell me a hp you want and a list of parts you have and i put you a combo together that will work. you are looking at blow thur set up right.
I guess this is more of a mid-mount setup:this maybe a dumb idea but im new to cars,motors and drag racing but what about rear mount twins. run exhaust back to the turbos then back to a carb hat just an idea is it possible
I think that a rear mount setup requires considerably different turbine sizing for a given application. While exhaust energy is flowing back to the turbo(s), heat energy is lost. So, you size the turbine of the turbocharger smaller so it requires less energy to spool.There is a company called Squires making kits like that for cars and pick-ups. http://www.ststurbo.com/industry_experts It is nice 'cause the turbos are out back, not in the engine bay. I don't think they optimise the boost though, they have to be small to keep the lag in check.
If you look closely 90+% of the time when one of these old threads gets bumped it’s someone’s first post which screams bot to me!!!How the hell do the few of you guys who do it find these 10-20 year old threads to post answers to? Just search random terms? How do you determine which old thread to bring back up from the grave? Just curious.....
