Twin HY35 holsets or HX35 holsets from cummins 5.9's in dodge pickups. A pair of These would be worth about 900 crank horsepower easy. It's what we used to replace our stock T3 turbocoupe units with. Made 412 rwhp with an HX35 on my 2.3 back when I had it.

Take a pair of unequal lenght shorties and swap side so they point forward and have cheap turbo headers. Google Toohighpsi site?

Check out E-Bay, I have seen intercoolers for 125.00 buy now, I seen turbo for good up to 900 hp for 211.00 to 235.00 buy it now, The headers are easy, Some cheap ass shorties cut and weld cheaply, the blow off valve's 14.00 to 35.00 buy it now. Talk to Adam wyatt or call mike moran for what turbo is best or close.There is some wicked ass cheap builds making some good power out there. Youtube it. good shit on there.

The turbo part is what ever you find, or by, but what about fuel management. DIY Carburetors, and then how to tune them. Thats what I need to know!
