Now we are talking. Cant wait for the answers.

I have a single turbo on my ferrari v8 but it is a terrible job by mick ward. Dont touch him if he is still in bussiness. Bensons used to be good if they are still around.

Twin turbos are usually the way to go with v engines which i guess is why everyone goes for superchargers.The heat involved in turbos eventually buggers everything from valve springs to exhaust manifold gasgets in engines not designed as turbo motors originally. I would look at supercharging.

Bensons are very good and are now in Newcastle - they do twin turbos (manifolds etc) for 351 Clevelands but I don't know whether they do Windsors
