Carbed 302 Turbcharged?

Ok i just want to know if this is even feasible. I currently have a 77 302 with an Edelbrock intake, higher compression pistons (dont know what compression tho). Heads are stock and the whole thing was rebuilt just over a year ago. How much boost could a motor like this handle without running the risk of blowing it up.

The compression ratio and piston material (forged, hypereutectic, or cast) will greatly effect the answer to that question.

Depends on how hard you "beat on it".

I'll see if I can find that info. When the truck was rebuilt I had to do it on a budget so its pretty close to what it had been stock with some minor upgrades. I'll see what I can find out tho
