converting from n2o to turbo possibly

im looking to convert from a nitrous to a turbo setup. i am currently in the process of building the shortblock, and i want to decide before i order my pistons. what would it require me to buy to convert from the carb to efi, and would i be able to go in the mid 8 second range with this setup.

i have pat musi ported high ports, along with a 408, all 4340 internals(in a stock block for now). i was looking into ordering the pro turbo kits drag radial kit. now a few questions i have are 1) will the intercooler keep me from being able to have a passenger? 2) can i put a mild tune in it to keep me in the 800-900 hp range? 3) how street friendly would this setup be?

im new to the whole turbo setup, so it would be great if those who know it will share their info. thank you in advance

thank you for your response. I have decided against using the 408 and building an r block 331 or a dart block 358. I may even go with the 306, who knows as of yet. I just want to make sure whatever i build can and will be driven on the street to car shows and the like.

Well in all honesty, a 900 horsepower car isn't really a street car anymore. With todays gas prices, its gonna hurt.

You can still have a intercooler with your car and keep a passenger. (Depending on the type of intercooler you want). I'd recommend a air-to-water intercooler. You can put the tank in the back seat area of the car. (Its still a long distance, but make sure you put the charge core really close to the throttlebody). For drag style cars I only recommend air-to-water. For Road Racer types, I recommend a air-to-air.

Yes, you can easily drive a 900 HP turbo car on the street. It'll use gas when you get on it, but you can still tune a 331/347/358 to get good mileage. If you're doing a dart block with all forged internals go a minimum of 331 inches, it doesn't cost you anything more than a 306 but helps out with turbo spool and mid range torque.

Numbers in sig. Exactly how it is driven on the street...no problems and I would do it again in a heartbeat!
