Unless that engine is purpose built with all forged internals and set up for turbocharging, that motor will be like playing russian roulette with three or four bullets in the magazine! Just my professional opinion.

Depends on his compression ratio, 6 pounds with a turbo is way different than 6 pounds with a blower. I'd take the 6 pounds with the turbo any day.

Check300 is running 21 pounds daily and 28 for special days Twin turbo 572 and it's quiter than a stocker.
This is with the good parts, but you can see the boost level is four times plus

What a POS I had a 96 Stingray 698zp (23') that had a 454 and went 70-72 all day stock and thats all you wanted to do in that hull, and I paid 20k for it in 98 sold it for 20k in 99.
