has anyone ever turbocharged/supercharged a stock 2.8 before
Just wondering how boost a stock Ford 2.8L v6 can handle? In my parts collections I have a M90 eaton supercharger that I was planning on using a turbo regal draw through 4bbl carb intake and I also have two small Mitsubishi turbo's off of a Dodge 2.5L turbo which would be I feel the ideal size. I dont what a 300hp screamer just make a 200-225hp daily driver. I have seen pictures somewhere of a old Ak Miller draw through setup, but I would much rather have a blow through with a intercooler. What would be the better setup
I once rode in a Sunbeam Alpine with a turbo'd 2.8...wicked fast! I don't recall how much boost he was using and I'd hesitate to guess at it...it was years ago. I think I have some pics of his setup around here someplace.
My preferance is for draw-through so you don't have to modify the carb to handle blow-through, but with an intercooler in the setup, then the intake tract winds up being an awfully long route for the atomized fuel to travel from the carb to the intake and I believe I read somewhere that there's a tendancy for the fuel mixture to condense inside the intercooler, so a blow-through setup may be a better bet in this case.
Me, I'd go with EFI. Build a 2.9 instead of a 2.8 or adapt an aftermarket fuel injection system to the 2.8.
"alot" is not a word...
Political Correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.
Consider 200 hp as a maximum, due to inherent flaws in the V6 design. Even the Aston
Martin Tickford Capri 2.8 put out only 230hp.
The Micheal May turbos in Europe utilised the smaller version of the 2.8, the 2.3 V6.
These 2.3's put out 180hp: Die sanfte Gewalt mit Turbo-May Aufladung
