Ummm...no. You wanna try? It'll be a fun (read: very hard and expensive) project.Anyone turbocharged a MN12 yet?
Neither. Its all preference. Some will say roots, others will claim centrifical.What's the best S/C-roots style or centrifical?
Aye. Incon has a twin turbo kit for stangs. the kit includes a new front suspensionJ-Rob said:youre biggest issue is modifying the exhaust to get an inlet pipe for your turbo. take a look down the driver side of the engine and check your clearance. it would take an act of god to get the piping done.
mustangs have more clearance than we do, thats why youre seeing those setups on them. not to mention the aftermarket support they have, if they had clearance problems like we do someone would have probably made a new k-member for them, but not yet for us...
boost is a measure of restriction. 20psi does NOT mean tons of power. It means you need a better intake/heads/exhaust.AverageJoe said:Well, if anyone is actually crazy enough to undertake this project, I'll throw this out for ya. With a decent turbo and a decent tune, you can run about 20 psi of boost on 92 octane by using water injection (alkey). If you want to know more information about it, check the alkey/nitrous tech forum over at www.turbobuick.com . My best friend has an 87 GN with that water injection on it. He runs 22psi on the street with 92 octane and runs a [email protected] at sea level. And thats burning the tires throgh 1st
I know that boost is a measure of restriction. I cut my mechanic/performance teeth on that buick. Anyways, if you're familier with the turbo buicks, they've got SERIOUSLY good flow rates through the intake and the heads. You pull off the "dog house" (upper plenum) and you can look straight down and see the valves. the exhaust has wonderful flow too. As for needing a better intake/heads combination, I don't think roughly 430RWHP is bad on 15psi boost WITHOUT the added intercooling effect of the alky injection. (I've been trying to get him to take it to a dyno, but that hp number came from a hp calculator that uses your 1/4 mile run)GreenBird said:

Sorry but I am not going to part it out.It only has 75000 on it now so it will have about 81000 when I pull it.AverageJoe said:Hey LX-Tasy, if you're pulling your 4.6 out, how much you want for the heads?
