As Chr!s says we have a complete section based on doing forced induction on a vechile, please research there. Turbocharging is very popular subject on the forums and you should be able to find all the information you need!

now, can I be the a**hole?

if its not gonna happen why ask? - firstly
and if turboing a falcon is sik then you should be driving a fully sik car to put the two together.
And thridly, don't you think people have asked this before? I mean, I thought you were kidding at first, there's a whole section for forced induction, and there are alot of people which ask this question.

And to answer your question to compensate for the a**hole bit:

Your bottom end would hold out depending on how many k's and how well its running but still wouldn't hold too long, judging by your post, you would be pushing some boost through. So a bottom end rebuild at least, then while you're there, get your crank balanced, to help with the reving. Do some headwork aswell, to get the flow flowing. After that's done, you can buy a kit, where you get a turbo, manifold, and wastegate, from there depending on what you wnat to be pushing you will need (for big boost application) bigger injectors, fuel reg to go with that, bigger fuel pump, after market ECU, intercooler, some neons to go with it, and so forth. You will then need to get that all installedand tuned. Then you have to worry about your T5 and clutch handling the power, so then you run into driveline problems. Anyway, list goes on, so if you want more info, get into the turbo section.


Cheers

Don't start s**t bowsaw, Im about to stick a turbo and a suprcharger into my car, it'll go soooo fast! Im picking it up as soon as I get my 30G! And since I have no mechanical knowledge, I will get it to go even faster by doing it myself. This is all after I buy that new Typhoon at the corner. I might ask my mum for this when I turn 16 in a month and get my L's. lol.



Cheers
