Help me understand about routing a turbo...
I'm very new to the whole Turbocharging idea, Used to have a S-Trim on my stang but am now looking at turbocharging a 4.2L V6 I have now in my thunderbird.
First off,, I want to run a single turbo setup with low boost numbers between 7-11PSI.
Do I have to run both exhaust manifolds into the turbo? or can I simply route one manifold into it?
I figure a Single turbo off a 2.0-2.3L if its run off only one side of the engine would work would it? anything bigger and it would suffer from lots of lag.
I'm currently looking at either a stock T3/t4 turbo from a 2.3L ford or a stock GrandNational turbo,, mainly for there price and availability.
Does the internal wastegate act as a Blowoff valve?? or will I need a wastegaste and a blowoff valve also?
Excuse my ignorance please but I couldnt find this in a search.
