turbo on 557 fox body

Post  ejsmith31 on December 19th 2010, 11:29 pm

I am building a 557 for my 1991 lx fox body. I am using the 385 block with 95cc heads. I was wondering what the max boost i will be able to run. Should i go with a single turbo or twin turbos. I was looking at twin t3/t4 turbos but i dont know if that will be enough. I was wondering if anyone has done this and if there are going to be a lot of things to modify or avoid.

Max boost is dependent and several things you didn't provide. To name just a couple...CR, fuel octane, type of use, intercooler, ect, ect, ect. Turbo selection (size & single/twin), once again, is dependent on hp goal, type of use, ect, ect, ect. Lots of stuff will need to be fabricated and modified to build a BBF/turbo combo in a FOX.

Have a good day!

What is a good size of header tube is good i am worried that my 2 1/4 might be a bit much and idk if i will run intercooler needing some advice on plumbing sizes, and how to make sure i dont have to much flow or not enough for my turbos

aftermarket block would be a good thing.
twin 88's will give you room to grow and will breathe well with the correct a/r. 2 1/4 may be a bit large for the headers.
if you plan on making some power an air to water intercooler will help you get there.
More info would really help though.
Just my opinion(s) though.
