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! [img]smile.gif[/img]

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...

Sounds like some serious fun, both during the build and again after when you're takin' down everything on the road. You gotta do lots of pics and write-up too, k?

Goodluck with the Turbo!

I think you will be the second turbocharged Fleetwood. There is another one on cardomain, I think he used to post here too...

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.
