Turbo guys please chime in! Ive always been a procharged kin of guy but ive come across a deal thats almost tooo good to be true! I will post more details later in the day when im not on my phone but setup basically consists of custom headers t6 flange, t6 forced induction 88mm turbo, intercooler, lines etc etc. Im very interested but have never liked the fact of oil feeding a turbo or charger. Thats why i was going to be going with an F1R over a turbo setup. So please ill do some forum research but just wana get some tips and tricks and major upsides and downsides

Really?? Well, F-body parts don't generally fit a on B-body. It is the reason you can't just buy F-body headers and put them on a B-body.

So, is your engine bay gutted? No A/C, p/s,ABS,fender wells, etc.

Putting aside the fitment issue, that turbo would make some serious power if it is done right. As far as the oil feed, the big difference between the turbo and the centrifical is that the blower uses a geared drive to speed up the compressor. The geared drive has the potential to introduce debris into the oil system, which is why most have self-contained lubrication. The turbo does not have those issues so using the engine oiling system in not problematic in that regard. This is not to say that the turbo oil system is not without concern. Oil temp, proper drainback and letting the turbo spool down are important issues.

If you can get the system you posted and have it fit "your engine bay", then I say go for it!

I for one would like to see setup like this go into a B-body. Theres a good amount of potential with a combination like that. With things moved out of the way properly, I can't think of any reason why it wouldn't fit. I would, however, be mindful of the upper control arms. I can see that being a tight area.

Control arms, frame, steering column, fender wells ect... all things that a turbo setup for an F body MAY contact on a b body. Some things can be modified (notching frames, running the steering column a different way yada yada yada) but if you are contacting a control arm or something immovable that would suck. My advice is just to measure measure measure. Get the exact measurements of the turbo setup as it sits on the motor, (how far out, up, down ect...) and measure on your car. Nobody here is going to be able to tell you for sure whether or not a turbo setup for one car fits another unless they tried that exact turbo setup.

I would love to see more people play more with turbo setups, especially the more serious ones like you were talking about. There's something to b said about throwing caution to the wind and getting serious on a build, forsaking A/C, P/S, etc, etc, in the hunt of an E.T.

If you have your eyes set on a 'thumper' turbo combination, I say go for it. There are ways to go about it. Just keep us posted when the surgery begins.

If I ever get out of the sandbox long enough to actually accomplish anything, you just might see one. But, according to Uncle Sam, your good for the next 2 years or so. Bastards.

Hey, I gotta live vicariously through you guys for awhile.
