just getting an idea whether or not my sbc would hold any boost at all.
here's the specs
rebuilt from the ground up in May 2006
4 bolt main high nickel block- fully machined for rebuild
all clearances are very very tight.
stock crank from a 73 truck
stock rods form a 73 truck
sealed power hypereutectic flat top pistons (about 8.2 CR maybe?)
stock 882 heads with new valves/springs/seats/retainers the works.
new lifters and pushrods (comp cams)
melling high volume oil pump
cam - 234/234 .512/.512 112lsa (i think that's the right lsa, maybe 114)
intake is a weiand xcelerator single plane
fuel/ignition system: custom MPFI system (home built ls-based
I know the rods and crank are my weakpoints, but they seem to be strong. I'm not looking to cram like 15 pounds into the motor, maybe like 6 or 7 max. really I wanna do it to learn more about turbo motors before I turbo my truck. performance gains would be great, since the buggy's around 2k lbs.
I can do all the tuning for the motor and have the skills to fabricate all of the turbo mods. just wasn't sure if anyone on here has had experience turbocharging a genI sbc 350. I'm gonna put a 5.3 in the dune buggy eventually, but wanted to try and turbo the 350
