im trying to PREPARE for turbo you see...its typically good to get all the secondaries for something before you actually get it...LT6916 on Sep/18/02 said:how bout you try to finish your exhaust system by installing a high-flow catalytic converter? oh and do you upgraded cams or turbo? no? then i wouldn't do an intake manifold or throttle body yet.
around 250(ish)whp...give or take, stock bottom end...mid-upper, more on mid range...i plan on doin the entire turbo system myself..so to refine my original question, I was wondering if anyone had any *suggestions* for parts that I can add on that will not infringe on my current performance too much with the insight of eventually installing a turbo system...hopefully now I wont have to bend over and grab my anklesBlueTeg on Sep/18/02 said:Well now thats a whole different story.
What type of whp are you gunning for? Powerband location?
Thats basically the exact answer I was lookin for..would an MSD SCI work ok, or would it be better to go with Digital 6? i'm not sure if the SCI automatically retards the timing when it senses boost...i was just thinkin ignition, IM, TB, fuel rail/pump and my springs are pretty stiff as is(skunk2 coilovers)...engine mounts are such a pain but def a necessityThere's no point in getting cams, injectors,exhausts, pistons, headwork, TB now since they would be entirely wrong for a turbo or would make your current NA setup gutless in the midrange and overly rich interms of air fuel ratio in certain parts of the rev range. Each application has it's optimal size and design layout in the parts combination. Unfortunately what is good for N/A would suck on a turbo and vice versa.
I guess you can get little things like stiffer rear springs, an LSD, polyurethance engine mounts, ignition upgrading, fuel pump upgrading....but the major engine build up stuff should be left for when you are ready to rock and roll with the kit.
