I was just wondering if it was possible to put a small turbo on an n/a, just to give it a LITTLE boost. With the TII conversion, you need a new tranny, new powertrain if I'm not mistaken. Please tell me if a small turbo would be remotely possible.

Some have done it on the forums, and all of them have blown their engines running low psi. If you're good with custom work it can be done for cheap, but you will need an s-afc, injectors, ic ect.

I don't see a problem if you get a smaller turbos wastegate actuator or hell just a small trubo but then you have the manifold to do. I don't see to much of a problem running 5psi or so. Or you could just do like many get a second job for a while. oh yes if you do go that route don't forget to add some fuel and retard the ignition or something that will do it for you.

Do it with a nice set Cosmo Twins set-up non-sequential. ~ 6 PSI of boost, add the Piggybacks and injectors you are ready yo go. I would remove the OMP completely, use the OMP mounting point as the turbo oil drain return.

You don't have to do the driveline right away. The T2 motor will bolt up to the N/A driveline. Just don't beat the **** out of it.

yeah, it shouldnt be too difficult to do.



spend some money on maximum boost by corky bell, it will help out with learning what needs to be done when force feeding the NA configuration. It has purty pictures of turbocharged race car engines too.
