Thinking of going turbo

Well I am thinking of going turbo and selling my D1SC procharger kit.
What are the pros and cons of going turbo? I am looking at a Hellion turbo kit.
Are there any issues with the kit? I have a R blocked 331 with TFS 205cc heads, a victor 50 intake, and a CI TLSR. All of this in my 93 notch. Are there any issues with a T-56 trans? I also have a full MM suspension under the car.
Would it be worth switching? Thanks for the input in advance.

If you don't already have a two step get one. That way you can build boost at the line with a stick.

you need to do a lot of research and see what's really out there. check out similar combos to see the power made and other parts they're using, etc. i'd also suggest B&G Custom Turbo way before hellion. hellion makes a nice beginner's kit for fox's. but with your potential, b&g will give you a setup to make over 1k hp. give brian a call there and see what i mean by a great business

also, is your t56 a viper spec? if not, it's time to upgrade. but i'd also suggest going auto with the power you can make. anything over 650 and up is too much to handle for a manual in my opinion. especially on the street.

Hellion is not a bad kit, greatly depends on the power goals of course. If maxing out a T76 is not enough power then I would look elsewhere. The T56 should not be an issue because it sounds like they have moved their crossover to the front of the motor. No idea on if any of the MM suspension would cause issues. I'd contact Hellion, chances are they would know.

You will make power alot quicker with a turbo. My two cars are about as extreme as you can get as far as differences. Both are fun to drive. But with the 4V and the D1 you need to tach it up good to really get the representative major acceleration. The turbo setup is making power at 1500 rpm.

R blocked 331s are called 4V these days?

I believe Erich is talking about his 97gt being an extreme case from his 2 valve 5.0 with diy twins. With his mark 8 being a 4 valve that he put in his 97 gt versus his 5.0 based twin turbo ride. No offense.

That is not a fair comparisons though, the 331 if built properly will make up for the low end umpth that I presume a stock 4V has. Sure a turbo still is a whole different animal on a 331 v. the D1 but how what I assume is a stock 4V drives with a supercharger compared to a built 331 with a supercharger is like comparing apples to oranges.

Depending on what the car is actually used for it would be hard to say if it is "worth switching". Yes the turbo route would produce a good bit more power and give a different power band that many prefer. It would though be a lot trickier to drive with a standard trans if one were to actually tune it to take advantage of that added power. I have had both, while never a D1 though and instead Vorturds, I actually prefer the superchargers for cars I actually drive but that is just me.
