2.3 carbed turbo blow thru 2bbl

<< < (4/6) > >>

jeff simmons:
Believe it or not, when I rebuilt my engine about 12 years ago now I wasn't planning on a turbo. I saw the turbo coupe sitting on the side of the road I ask the owner and he said you want it go get it. That being said I'm running forged flat tops, The head has been milled .080 And I haven't even backed the timing off any. Iv'e had this set up for 4 years now. Last summer I finaly changed the plugs and no signs of detination. I know that much compression and timing should be devistating to my engine, I don't know why it works so well. In the beginning I just wanted to try the turbo out then work my way up to fuel injection. Last summer we was driving to a car show about a 130 miles away and I got a crack in the oil line to the turbo after fixing we was going to be late so we was driving about 80mph right on the edge of fuel starvation about 3# of boost and we got 27 mpg. On the stampede trip I'm planning to drive normal I'm hoping to get 30mpg.

never got around to doing this yet, other projects,life,ect.
so has anyone in the mean time did a blow thru turbo set up with a 5200

could someone move this to the turbo section.
