    Talk with KLRS10 over at V8s10.org...... He is running a single turbo with a home built carb setup......... His set up is simple but really effective.:bigthumb:

    Yes, but I want to have mine on top of a 350 or 383.. Not a 2x4.

    I like the annular discharge Holleys 9380 for the 850 and 9379 for the 750. Work great out of the box for normal applications and see no reason why they wouldn't on a blower. they have 4 idle circuits and annular booster and 50 cc pumps--- basically a mini dominator.

    I am also getting the impression that you are still not giving up on a 350 and no more. Part of the reason for going to a 355 is more to straighten out the bore tapers and cylinder wear than any other reason.
    you are right, i was thinking of dual carb setups on a naturally aspirated motor.





    I say go hilborn injected 6-71. my friends dad has that on a 32, and i think it gets reasonable gas milage (around 15)

    Is it worth putting a small simple turbo setup on a low end torque motor? can it be done without some crazyness? i wouldnt mind one.

    Any turbo system is pretty much gonna need the same things. Need to fab up turbo manifold/s, crossover pipe if single, run piping, oil lines, etc.


    Granted, modifying a set of stock manifolds is gonna be easier than something like a full custom stainless steel tubular turbo header,but Im sure you get the idea.

    A lot of the fabrication is in the exhaust. Some places will do up a log style manifold on driver side, connected to crossover to passenger side (or vice versa) and join to log manifold on opposite side. This is stock syty layout. If he goes twin, each manifold feeds its own turbo.
    When I say Log I mean that they take 3" pipe and lay it parallel to side of engine, and use smaller, 2" elbows from header flange to 3" pipe, so its compact, and easy to work with.
    I will search to see if I can come up with a site showing the fabrication I am talking about.
    Damn.

    I know that these aren't up to the task of a turbo system, but these are close to what you were refering to. I think these would be easy to modify into turbo manifolds.

    I think due to how cramped a blazers engine compartment is. I think a twin turbo setup would be a better idea, eliminating the need for a crossover pipe

    I think running something like these block huggers. All you would have to do is cut the collector down and intall your T3/ T4 flange.

    You could always build one.....

    This was built for an IsuzuAmigo 4 cylinder. It is a good reference to see how much work goes into equal length tube turbo manifold.

    Here is another header setup.
    This is for a LT-1 B-body.

    Very similar to the direction I am headed.

    Can't really tell from that pic, but they kinda look like ZR1 vette rims.
