****, I can probably say without much doubt, that my (small) turbo'd stock motor will probably make @the same hp as you on pump gas man. Especially if you're using the stock blower.
damn when are you guys gonna learn... s/c's are for the big boys (V8's)
oh yeah my other turbo project starts in about a week once I get the balt all tuned up.
T-76 turbo'd 406 CID sbc monte carlo ss (1984) with a nice little (250hp) nitrous plate on it for the hell of it.

Well, concidering mine on pump gas will be making 10 psi AT MOST, and have the cams turned back for lower end performance I wouldn't be suprized if it did make the same power. However when I throw the small pulley on there and adjust the cams for more agressive top end, its all over. Also my 1.7L OA (kenne bell) twin screw may have something to say about your statement about blowers being for big boys

Oh really? So he's had the block machined, crank machined and cryo frozen, and he has a set of custom billet rods? Hmm, thats not what he told me. He told me he had pistons and thats it. Then again, he's the one who told me, you can re-use the stock head bolts.... the stock TORQUE TO YEILD (one time use only) head bolts

Its alright. There is no need to have a war about it if someone said something at one time that was not the smartest thing. Maybe he was just less educated at the time

I enjoyed the face he was sticking to the s/c. I guess if he goes to the turbo route i'll still love him. i guess.

Is you CRAZY!?!?! I'd rather see my car burn to the ground and explode, then see a turbo under the hood!

Still waiting on the mysteriously dissappeared GM intake cam blank. Rods, if there going on schedule should be here in 2-3 weeks. Crank machining, and block honing should be done in less than a week.

How dare you! Victory_Red_SS's car has been out of commision for almost 2 years. Blown 4-bangers has only been down since Feb-March. He should have his back together by the end of the year...so we hope.

He is waiting on the cams to come in and then he give Ferrea the new base circles and they can make the valve stems the right length. Then when those come in he is gonna be able to get the head machined to match the larger valves and get a full radius valve job done. Then the assembly process should begin, then tuning, etc.
