Let me start this by saying that I feel like a crackhead looking for a bigger fix!!! I got the chance to pick up a used turbo technologies turbo kit for an Impala. The kit was missing the intercooler but I'm working on that now. I picked up a new exhaust setup to go in with the turbo and a few other goodies to support the turbo install as well. Right now I'm missing a blow off valve which the kit never had to begin with, and the piping to the intercooler. I got an intercooler alrady too. I'm shooting to do the install in January at my buddy's shop.

I was sort of keeping it a secret but I couldn't keep it in anymore... Just had to let ya in on my little secret... So what do you guys think? First turbocharged Fleetwood? All I know is that I will definately be suprising the sh!t out of a few folks out there!!!

Nice! Can't wait to see how she runs!

What's your CR right now? Is it still stock? How much boost you planning on running? 6 or 7 pounds?

That's gonna be sick!

Yeah I'm at the stock CR. I'm thinking it should be at about 7-8 psi. I'm thinkin the 502 cam on the 114lsa i have in the car now will work really nicely with this kit...

Off topic: i really gotta get around the forum more often I didnt know your car had a mishap!!! where the thread so i could catch up...

Well Fasstwood, your Fleet is already one of my favorites (and it's a great role model for mine). Now with a turbo... wow. Can't wait to see the results.

James I'll let you know when. Its probably gonna be a weekend in January over at JP's shop in Long Island. We were figuring on starting the project on a friday night and knocking out the bulk of it. Then Saturday we'll tow it to the exhausr shop. And on Sunday we will fine tune.
