cross flow LPG turbo in tc cortina!
I have a 250 tc cortina, pre xflo, on gas, 3 spd bw auto, 2.77 open centre diff.
I want to turbo it. I am pretty sure I need to scrap the pre x flo and sling in an x flo.
So what x flow is best suited for the turbo application? (cast iron, alloy head etc)
I want to run a GRA throttle body and twin convertors. Can you use an intercooler with this set up?
Do you recon there is a better/cheaper way?
What turbo would be best? I need a larger one as I want the boost to start at 2500-3000 so I can still cruise around on the street off boost most of the time. Then get a big hit when boost comes on.
What would be the max boost without touching the internals? Im thinking about 5-7 psi?
I want to run a very mild turbo set up for awile (2-3 years), get used to it save some cash and then go all out. (300+rwkw).
Can you tell me everything I will need? I know about turbo, external wastegate, custom exhaust manifold, intercooler, oil lines, all connecting piping, bov. I am sure I have missed a few things.....
i have done a search on x flo turbos but I still want to know more. Especially anything and everything about LPG turbos!
any help is much appreciated thanks,
