Does anyone know what it would take to turbo an 88 F150 with a 302 5spd? I've been told that the forced induction of a super/turbo charger would go beyond the limits of the speed density system, that I'd have to go to a mass airflow type system. Does anyone have any experience with this? If I do need to change over, what would be a good donor vehicle for the parts, cause I'm figuring that junkyard parts would be cheaper. Also what would be a good donor for a turbo for me to use with this system? I know I sound cheap, but wedding bells are in the future, along with college loans, etc., so money is tight. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated, and thanks in advance for the help!
ok from my reaserch into turbocharging this is what you need. you need special built manifolds, you need turbo(s), you need wastegate(s), and posibly a intercooler(it is not needed but is helpful for getting the full potential of the turbos. here are some sites 1. www.turbocity.com, 2. http://members.aol.com/stang8s/index.htm
hopefully these help, if you need a system turbosity will help you make one, the other site is a guy who races a twin turbo mustange. 3. http://www.classictruckshop.com/clubs/earlyburbs/projects/turbo/charging.htm, this one is a guy who has done superchagering on his trucks before.
good luck 69man
