Post  1983thunderbird472 on April 10th 2014, 7:05 am

Im building a 472 and i would like to put a single turbo on the beast but im not sure what size i need. The car will mainly be a street car but it will see the track a couple times a year.

What are your horsepower goals?   RPM range of the motor?  Induction?

Hp goals are 600hp for the street and around 800 when turned up for the track, keeping rpm around 6000 - 6500 with a blow thru carb

With that horsepower goal just about any large frame turbo will work.  really the compressor size doesn't really matter as much as getting a large exhaust wheel.  I could probably find you a good deal either new or used if you are interested.  Our used units are checked over and not just a racingjunk special.

The color of your T-Bird in your avatar looks a lot like my '83 Heritage T-Bird.

You should post up pics of your ride in the General Discussion area.  Wink
