· mfi turbos rule
first of all, what do you wiegh? ( car of course...)I currently run a rail, pipe rack, rear engine dragster, with a sbc 383 with Brodix T1's. It runs 8.0's in decent weather. I have wrung just about all I can out of this without spending $, and figure I could go a different direction this time. I do almost all of my own fabricating, and understand the basics of turbos pretty well.
I would like to step the small block stuff up to about 1000 hp. It is currently alky mechanical injected. I would go electronic if mechanical is just not practical. I see these articles of guys using turbos off of construction equipment and running well for street cars. While I take this with a grain of salt, I would like to save some money even if the combo would take a little sorting out. I'm not sure there is any reasonably priced way to turbo. Any suggestions?
if you will be satisfied with 1000 hp, the cost of those twins would be the same as 1500 hp.
mech injection works, but it takes a bit to sort it out...we run mech ninject and i love it.
where in usa are you? there are ppl that can sort it out if you need a ph number.
All the mech injection hardware will run into about mech fuel pump $ 477 , extra nozzels ( need 16 ) , extra dist block and hoses, enrichment valve ( hilb ) , extra springs and poppets for fuel syst,
modified intake, new cam , bov's w/g
If you want a starting point, and around 1000-1400 hp , try the turbonetics hp 66 mm ( 1400hp ), or garrett gt 35's ( 1200 hp)
DONOT go too big, you will run into spool up problems.
Let us know which way you go.
