Stock Turbo 2V Questions

So, I just bought a single turbo kit from a member on here that was made by TCI (Turbocharged Innovations) to mimic a Hellion single kit. I plan on running a MP T70 and then stepping up to a T76 when I get a motor built for the car. I have a bunch of questions... Bare with me because I'm a fox body guy and haven't played much with modulars.

-How much power and how many pounds of boost can these motors (stock) handle with a safe tune?
-Would running a 44mm Wastegate and a 50mm BOV with the MPT70 make for a decent combination?
-Do these cars pop head gaskets under boost like fox bodies do? Should I switch to ARP head studs and boost friendly head gaskets or is it not necessary on these cars?
-Should I get the .68 a/r or the .96 a/r T70? I'd like the turbo to spool around 3000 RPM for fun on the street.

Thanks in advance for the help guys!

Chris


Bought and sold way too many.

-How much power and how many pounds of boost can these motors (stock) handle with a safe tune? - seems around 400rwhp
-Would running a 44mm Wastegate and a 50mm BOV with the MPT70 make for a decent combination? - should be fine, thats what ill be running with my 76mm
-Do these cars pop head gaskets under boost like fox bodies do? Should I switch to ARP head studs and boost friendly head gaskets or is it not necessary on these cars? -with a stock block/lower end you should be fine with bolts.
-Should I get the .68 a/r or the .96 a/r T70? I'd like the turbo to spool around 3000 RPM for fun on the street. - that i cant answer heheh - i was told to go with a 96 for my 76.

Thanks in advance for the help guys!

I was running 10lbs of boost with a single 70mm when my stock motor let go. Keep it under that and you have a chance. No need for ARP cuz the rods and pistons won't live long enough to need that stuff. And no the Mod motors are not known for popping headgaskets all the time. Even at my power levels I'm still running OEM MLS headgaskets.

I run a 38mm Tial gate on my car...no need for a huge valve with a 70mm. I'd also stick with 70mm and a .68 for your power levels. I make the numbers in my sig on a MP 70mm and she still has room left.

for a stock motor i would go with a T61 or a 62-1. I had the 62-1 on my setup and made over 530whp. Spools at or below 3000rpm, even with the .96 a/r

Yea I agree if you don't already have the turbo...the 70mm is way overkill for a stock motor for sure.

I was thinking he already had a turbo...but after rereading his post it appears he doesn't have one yet.
