Btw there IS more room under a Cortina than there is in an E.B...
So you think there would be enough room then Ebxr8240? I was thinking of twin t4's or a single t66. What do you guys recon? So, if twin t's on a 302w can be done on an EB then they should be ok to fit in a corty?
I would want something that can run at 330-350rwkw on the street, on low boost, then go 450rwkw+++ on the weekend at the strip with higher psi.

Ohc 4.0's are a real prick to fit apparently. They are too long to fit in the cortys engine bay properly. And numerous other changes have to be made as well. Very time consuming apparently. Ask 'tarahymen' (classic name, gotta love it) on these boards, he has done it, thats where I got the info. Its a shame as well because I would love to run this motor with a turbo.
I might not want the extra power to begin with but in the end I will.I mean come on, who doesnt. You get more power, you get used to it, you get more power, you get used to it and so on a so forth.
It would be great to just wind the boost when I want more power, rather than have to drop in a whole new motor. Thats what ill get with a 302t or tt.
The turbos crossflows can pull pretty amazing figures, especially torque, but once you get to 350-400rwkw it gets very hard to extract more, and keep it streetable, without mega $$$$.
