I am thinking my next project will be whats readily available as far as a vehicle and I decided to use the size of the engine bay and what was used at the factory, I am still in debt pretty much from the Dodge Challenger R/T project but am slowly digging my way out of debt. Heres the "deal" I have a pretty cool Dodge 4x4 and most of my Mopar experience is with small blocks but I love turbo setups! Face it folks if NHRA allowed turbos almost every class would be running one! Dont believe me just ask The engine developers at Caldwell where I think Jerry Mallicoat works as project engineer. He built the Vipers world Championship engines, Him and his brother where outlawed back in the sixties in nhra for their turbo Hemi cuda, it was plain too fast! So lets get started and since I am in the planning stages any advice is welcome and encouraged: The engine will be a stroker 360 Magnum,(its whats powering the beast currently), the most cubes I can get with the stock block is 426,( I LOVE that #), with a Dave Hughes engine kit. Think a stock block will hold 800 H.P. 700 LB. FT.? I am also thinking about STS Turbos cause you dont need an intercooler! The under chassis "piping" serves as the intercooler! I am also thinking Dual turbos sized smaller than usual as this will spool up quicker allowing more bottom end torque. Like I said ANY input appreciated and tell me what to do, Thanks Eddie.
