Fairmont and 3.3 ??? I don't think so??
Yea mate bolt a GT30/40 on one of them with carb hat via intercooler..
The bottom end of 3.3 are nearly indistructable...Sorter stroke etc makes them ideal though some valve springs etc would help higher rpm stability..You could fit the XE/F head with efi and go down that path with chaep aftermarket ecu etc...But then again latter model engines are so cheap, like under $650 for the sohc motors...

Check this car out...

Ok this is mainly V8 but same idea

Turbo sales here..If in Aust...
