Here's the deal, thinking about building a 363 c.i. (302) motor using a Dart Iron Eagle block, not sure on compression yet but I know it'll be low. So here's my questions, what AFR heads should I run, who to order a custom turbo camshaft from, what gear 3.27 or a 3.55 ? Also, is a 88mm gonna be too big to run on this combo or should I go with a 76mm ? Who can I get a complete kit from, intercooler/hot cold side/ BOV, WG etc etc etc ? This motor will be carbed which I am currently running a 750 Race Demon. Diamond pistons ? Any help is appreciated.
The 88 is perfect and I would not go any smaller. I ran a gt47-88 with a .96 ar housing on my 327, I just went to a 94mm though. Don't go below 9:1 compression and use a great, not mediocre, tuner. You can go even higher on comp with the right people involved.
I would use a 1.08 ar exhaust housing for your combo.
Call Jose at Forced Inductions for the right turbo for your combo.
A gt47-88 would be great as well as a pt88. The Garretts make more power imo.
I'm happy with my custom cam from Turbo People and would recommend him again.
As far as your heads, get a recommendation from Bennett Racing, I've had one of his cams too and it worked out very well.
Definately 3.27 gears.
Finally, look into BG turbo systems for a complete kit. Brian has a great reputation.
With an 88, you see looking at 1000-1100 rwhp and low low 8 second ets.
Good luck with it all and really consider injection.
