I currently have a Vortech sq s trim installed. I have had it on there for about 2 months. Ive put 1k miles on it so far. I really like the s/c and car runs great. I have a good tune using a draw through maf car runs/drives good. I use to have a turbo car and there is definately two different kinda of feels to the power. I personaly like the turbo feel better.
I really like the fact that I would be intercooled. Im currently running 20* timing non cooled on my 306. I have forged low compression pistons a little over 8 to 1. Im making around 15 psi now.
Do you guys think its worth it to go turbo? I would like the torque increase and the power down lower. I only take my car to 5500 rpms and I would only like to make about the same hp just match it with torque maybe a little more (hopefully). I would like a quick spooling turbo but nothing to small I have to use lots of boost to make good power. Im thinking maybe a garret t-64 or the t-70 seems to be really popular. As far as tuning goes I would think I can just use my draw through maf and a by-pass and just use my tune i have? I would just use a dyno and play with boost but I would think that it would work out just fine not much to it lol..
Having a stock block is a turbo easier on the engine then the supercharger? I ask because of the free power from exhaust and you dont have strain on the crank from the belt. I currently run a 3.73 its way to big I think. I'd like to go at least a 3.55 with the s/c. Should I go even lower with the turbo if i decide to do it? Because Im only going 5500 with 3.73 and a 26.5 tire im only hitting 116 in 4th. I just want to be able to drive through the 1/4. Maybe 127 or so. Is there a gear between 3.27 and 3.55?
Sorry so long I thank anyone in advance for your help.
A 3.27 gear would get you your trap speed and would be the best gear to run IMO, since it's what I run, also most turbo setups are blow thru and regardless you would still need to tune and yes turbo cars are a little easier on the motor since they don't run off the crank.
bro, go turbo.. I recently did and my car is amazing.. It runs so smooth and easy on the street and runs [email protected] on drag radials and still has a/c. I went with a bg turbo kit and never looked back again!! Good luck with your decision
