Well just the mention from Jeff about a turbo build has my wheels turning now. Thanks ALOT Jeff! So I am considering a pair of small twins. This is a true street car and I drive it to car shows and to get ice cream and to work as well. I live in Daytona Beach, so it an all year round car. But im looking for some direction now. I am in process of a frame on resto (I restore cars for a living) right now, so there is a small budget left for this build. I have some patches to weld in, replacing the entire interior etc.
Here is what im working with:
stock crank and rods
All ARP bolts
#96 heads unported
1.65 HS rockers and Rhodes Vmax lifters
RAIV Crower 60919 cam
RPM and qjet (or T2 and 3310)
So to me so far it looks like some H beams for sure. Not sure about the cam. If I can keep it great, because its brand new, but if it has to ....it has to go. I believe it is around 9.2-9.3:1 compression, but I will be pulling the heads to get real numbers and go from there.
So with this info, what would be some good turbos to go with? I would be intercooling as well. Most likely going blowthrough.
And I should point out again, this is a street car that I would be turboing for fun and to get a little more out of. It would possibly go to the track now and again, but I havent been in 3-4 years, so its unlikely. So max power isnt important. But if im going to do it, it may as well be correctly. Im hoping I can find some small turbos that would make decent power and still have some room to work in the engine bay. I do take it to lots of car shows, so it has to look pretty in there too. Oh! And surely I will be making some simple logs for it.
This is going on a 1965 Tempest, so zero room down there.
