Question General turbocharging questions

ok, I figured it would be better to ask ford guys about this, instead of asking the ricer kids at my school.

I have a 1988 Bronco II 2.9L, and I have found little to nothing to make it faster. So, i want to try a turbo. I have researched pretty much everything i want to know about it, and i have decided i want to use a T3 or similar turbo. I want to mount it where my headers come together, in the place where my cat.converter currently is. I want to know about what problems I might have, and i want to know more about wastegates and blowoff valves. I want to run 5-8 lbs of boost, because this is an older engine, but it's still in good condition.

Re: General turbocharging questions

You need to mount turbo high enough for oil drainback to sump..
Yes a T3 would be a good size especialy with .63 A.R housing...Here's a GOOD site to pick up info..

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