1st of all wlecome to the forums,

2ndly please be aware that not everyone is reading into your point forms as you may wish them too, so please keep the one liners out of the equation and give us a bit more info to work with.

As a newbie I think the tolerance has to work both ways.

mate thats a big call for your 3rd post....

if your going to post here you have to try and not take things so seriously first of all

also if you are so intelligent you wouldn't be making remarks like that.

anyway i think lunchtime is over....you'd better get to class

No there isn't they believe that 5.4 is enough[ in Auss]. The home of these engines [U.S] use suppercharges to gain heaps of power and torque [pulling power] its a possitive displacement type that fits where the inlet is. This type is used in the latter Lightnings which is a F150[?] truck type.They can do low 14's on the 1/4 mile..
Believe me fitting a twin turbo in a BA would be hard work though I can see where a T 66 single would work and fit o/k. Have to be carefull with that much power on transmissions etc..
Fitting turbo would be around $10K done right ..

Don't be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the Ark...Professionals built the Titanic!

but wouldnt be easier to work with a twin screw taking into account the space lost within the engine area itself?
