Danny,

You can buy the Fast XFI standalone at numerous places. I got mine from the Race Shop who did the installation of the standalone system. Which is the same place who has redone most of the turbo system, tunes the car and built the stainless exhaust systems for both of my SCs. Here's is a link to the shop. The owner's name is Dan Saitz.

The other popular standalone engine managment system (GM based) is called "Big Stuff 3" and Dan call also supply it.

Danny,

If you want a super strong foundation that is professionally assembled, Dart Machinery is now offering short blocks based on numerous blocks they offer.

http://www.dartheads.com/products/short-block-assemblies/the-dart-short-block-builder.html

For a 302 based motor you would use the 8.2" deck Iron Eagle or Sportsman block (I got the stronger Iron Eagle version which is overkill). I imagine you can have it built in numerous configurations like 302, 331, 347 and 363 CID. Suggest dished pistons and not going any higher than 9.00:1 static compression. Then you just need to select the cam, heads, valvetrain, intake, timing set ect... The most important portion of the engine build happens when building the short block. Most of the other stuff, is just bolted together.

I'm looking to turbo charge my 5.0L HO with a single turbo. Engine is fairly stock with a few mods such as headers, plugs&wires, port&polished intake. I'm wondering what turbo would be best to use that will spool up quickly and not ruin my engine as this will be my daily driver. Will the stock 5.0L HO handle the power increase and boost? What is the best way to go about this and things I will need? Thanks and all input will be greatly appreciated!
Go with a 408W.

Problem Solved.

i thought the 87 and up 5.0 HO's all had 9.0:1 comp ratios
Correct. Actually, in '86, the 5.0 HO motor had 9.2:1 compression with the new '86 heads but was lowered to 9.0:1 in '87 when they switched to the E7 heads. An '85 HO motor would be good for forced induction, they have a compression ratio of only 8.4:1.

As far as the OD goes, you will not really need it if you go with a 400 or a glide. Since you will no doubt step down to a 3.27 gear to make the engine work to build boost. Typically, you will see the turbo cars with lower (numerically) gears for that reason.
