$199 for a 1000 hp potential turbo, wonder how long it could last?
850 demon should feed it, and low compression is good. New challenge, how fast for $1000? lol..
It would be restrictive, but what if you picked it up after the Y pipe, installed the turbo in the passenger seat area, inside the car, routed the cool air forward, S the hot air back out?? Or put it in the back seat, put a box over it. to hide it. Then run some PVC or a Spectre air cleaner like G8ters to inlet the air, tell people you used the cowl to pick up the cold air.. Or run 4" PVC solid to the air cleaner with some cover over to look like a CAI. Custom Y pipe, 2.5 down pipes, then 3.5 Y and out to concealed turbo. I was thinking the rear mount turbo for my Vette, but thought a big puddle in the rain would lock it up due to temp change, that's why the internal mounting. Have the car pick up air inside the car, have to have the windows down..
Turbo lag, at least you have a Poncho torque to get you going til the turbo spools..
You could also runs dumps before and after the turbo under the car, then install a pipe there to take the turbo out of the loop between drag week runs. And disco the CAI under the hood, best of both worlds and a temp turbo. Could even swap to an economy carb with power valve for road trips to get MPG.
