help with 62mm turbo 302 hotside selection

the combo is a forged piston 302, ported tw heads, gt40 ported lower cobra intake, custom cam and a turbonetics 62mm turbo (.81a/r). shooting for 550-600rwhp max. i would like to use a draw through meter if possible. the only accessory i will be running is an alternator and i might relocate it to the drivers side if i get a passenger side mount turbo. i will probably source my own intercooler and make my own cold side piping, so i am just looking to get the hotside. to people that have similar daily driver setups... what hotside kits do you recommend? is there anything advantageous about running no accessories in regards to turbo placement or pipe routing?

I'm running a B&G turbos hotside. Everything fits great. You're gonna have to spin that turbo real good if your goal is 6000rwhp.

what i should say is that im looking for no more than 600. im expecting 550 with a good port job on the tfs tw heads and about a bar of boost. i want to run about 10psi everyday. make over 400rwhp and get good mileage and torque off-boost. the things im concerned with about hotside selection is maf placement. a lot of people have advised me to go draw through if possible, and with a single it is. is there a preferable place to mount the meter/filter? for what its worth i dont drive in snow or rain; i will if its wet out, just not raining. 93krwy- where does your maf/filter mount with the b&g off the shelf headers? where does the maf/filter mount on the quicktime kits? ive considering both of these companies. the only two people i know that have b&g headers love them, but they are different and have the turbo mounting orientation changed. ease of coldside fabrication is a consideration of mine, since im doing it, and its my first piping fab. i dont want to get a hotside that makes coldside fab unnecessarily hard.

The MAF placement has NOTHING to do with the hot side.

and you sure arent gonna run a drawthru if you get the BG headers---its hard enough to get the air filter in there

run a blow through setup and the meter will go inside the passenger fender because you want it in the longest straight shot of pipe you can get. I didnt even have to lengthen the wires to my MAF.

well the hotside positively locates the turbo... therefore that dictates where the compressor is and where its exducer or volute is capable of pointing. if you have the turbo in a location where you can ONLY get a filter on the inducer, then you cant use a draw through maf. if you are going to do blow through you need at least 6" of straight pipe before the maf, so you have to take that into account if you go that route. the coldside is designed around the hotside, not vise versa. for these and many other reasons, maf placement and the hotside are indeed very related.

i think a good blow through meter might be the better way to go on this build because if i ever upgrade to twins i wont have to upgrade the meter from draw through. same case with the big single. at the worst id need a recal for bigger injectors. so the regular b&g headers are good for blow through? are there any other good hotsides for this application?

Yes, the regular BG headers are good for a blow through. If you havent allready I would suggest going to Turbomustangs.com. You can purchase everything you need from that site/sponsors. Go into the "builds" section and find a thread that says "BG/ponydown/quicktime hotside with DIY coldside" There are plenty of photos and info to refer to when needed. I think you can get a complete bolt on kit from BG for about 3k now. If you dont have a welder allready, thats tough to beat.

Best of luck, and just be patient if you decide to get the welder and fab the pipes yourself as it will be the most time consuming part of the build but also the most rewarding.

Only thing you need to do on a Blow thru MAF is just
make sure you have a nice straight shot of pipe before
the meter, so it gets a nice smooth flow thru the it.

8-12" of straight pipe before the meter and you'll be fine
