Hi all, I am new to the turbo scene and am considering a big boy combo. I know my way around an NA build, but am thinking of a turbo build to push 4600lbs into the 8's and drive daily. It's a TBSS, w/ 4l80e, full weight. My biggest questions are what breaks constantly? Maintenance schedule? How big do I need to go turbo wise to get me there? 88-106mm single? Thanks to all, sorry for the newbie questions. I have worked on some basic eBay turbo builds on old blow through stuff, but the bigger power stuff is new to me. Thanks for any info.

Thank y'all for the replies. I know I am shooting for the stars, but may as well try. I just hate surprises, I am trying to have an idea of what to expect maintenance wise and what is going to fuck me on a regular basis. Any info is appreciated.

You just have to make everything stronger .

Ive broken , yokes , u-joints , rear gears , input shaft , case lugs , sprag , converter splines , spring perches , caltrac bolts on top of springs .

Never hurt any rotating parts , but have killed my fair share of pistons .......lol

broke main caps on stock block , cracked an SHP block and now have the World block with motor plate .

I built a TBSS back in 2008-2009 that went 9.0 @ 152mph. It was street driven and 4600lbs. Twin masterpower 7665s with a 402 at 25psi.

Power wise shouldnt be too difficult. Your typical forged lsx block 400” hyd roller deal with a 88-94 mm single should be plenty and not be pushed too hard. Might do it on a stock block deal but meh... E85 make it easy, else race gas tune and a lower boost pump gas limitation. Just need a strong trans and rear

I went 8.2’s at 3750 with a non exotic driveline. Almost 800 lbs more it should still be high 8’s I imagine and thats 1200 whp ish.

lol ...... Live and learn right ?

But the shocker was the Dana ring and pinion gear last year .

And the Trutrac keeps on going ..... and its probably over 13 years old
