You'll probly get a v8 convo done for that money but your 6 will still be quicker. Double your 5k if your thinking turbo and want it to last.

my tuner says 5k is enough for a completly safe turbo kit altho he said with my headwork done the engine wont last aslong as it would with standard comp

and i dident mean a v8 conversion i ment a (xa-xe) 351 whole car

altho a 351 in my car wouldent be to bad either

mm im starting to think i might scrap the ba xr6t engine conversion and just go with the 5grand turbo my engine option although my engine has compression of 10.3 or something this should mean the turbo will spool up quicker( correct me if i am wrong) so long as im not chasing big numbers i reckon my engine should be fine to work on with a turbo

whos got any ideas on what turbo to buy as a gt40 seems a little big for my application of 0-100killer
