With a general mod list like this:

306 (DSS Kit)
TFS Heads
TFS Stage 1 cam
Edelbrock RPM air gap, Holley 750 D.p. ( set up for blowthough )
Holley Annilator Ign
Flowmasters with dumps

What kind of boost levels would it take safely. 10 lbs? I know there are more variables, that list get close to a number? Probably be a twin turbo kit...Might look at something like

10 is a good number for your set-up and stock block, should make 500rwhp easy. though you could push it farther...........

Those are just examples.....I'll most likely be using one of Newt-Rods kits. Just using those for turbo sizing examples... stainless pipe etc etc.

Only turbo car Ive ever had was a 89 vert with a 2.3T swap. It was a fun car and I learned some basic turbo tech trouble shooting stuff with it. Is the stock block ok to 500 horse. I would be VERY happy with that. I dont have flow numbers on the heads yet, dont know if there has been any work done to them. These parts are on a car im trading for and I wont be doing this until after december when I graduate. Just trying to gather info now.
