I am all in on the turbo mod. Anything you learn when doing this, let me know as I, too, am considering, very seriously, aquiring all needed materials to perform this RAD modification. As for the ported T.B., absolutely! It needs all the flow possible with the pressurized air. I would like to know about exhaust mods, as for the best setup (after turbo) for street use. I was considering using a CARB! Since the intake will need to be totally custom anyway. Only issue here is the computer controlled fuel/fire timing and cam advance. If that could be resolved, it should be a bad dude! Then again, injection, if modified correctly with a way to modify tuning on the stock chevy ecu, should be equally as good, with obvious advantages for normal street operation. Maybe converting to the F.A.ST. system is a better way to go. As the FAST control system is well known for superior performance and tuning capacity far beyond anything chvy has ever made, should be much easier to tune to one's prefered state of tune, w/o issues! Yes, this means big $ as it always will with any mod worth doing to a street based vehicle. Its all about the owners desire. Much rather do this than to dump 60,00 dollars PLUS on a new pickup thats still locked down as for performance. Dull to me, thankfully everyone isnt like me! Let me know here on any and all methods found to takle this mod, as if it's done right, with regard to keeping with a good looking truck with some serious H.P. is concerned. Body just need to be straight with slight mods for the Turbo mod and considerations for traction! Let me know people, no hard feeling on any comment, but I do prefer those who, instead of bashing one mans dream, will actually be constructive to the modifications becoming reality.
