fabricating your own kit sounds pretty easy but in the end if you dont have good fabrication skills and info into the turbo side of life you will just end up making a mess of it.

You can buy a good kit for 4-6k probably~ but if the engine is not built its a better idea to build the engine with forged internals etc etc

helion is a good turbo kit brand

Re: looking for thoughts and ideas

Turbos, supercharger and nitrous all do the same thing. They force more air and fuel into the combustion chamber. The big difference between a nitrous system and a turbo or supercharger is you can turn the nitrous off. And it's way cheaper then a turbo or supercharger.

Nitrous is N20. When it is in the combustion chamber and the temp gets hot, I think it's about 545 degrees, the molecule disassociates releasing the oxygen. You inject fuel with the nitrous and you have a combustion chamber stuffed full of oxygen and fuel. Same thing you get with a turbo or supercharger. They are easy to install, about a tenth of the cost of a turbo or supercharger kit. Yes you do have to buy the nitrous but when a turbo kits cost five to seven thousand dollars and a nitrous kit cost seven hundred you can buy a WHOLE LOT of nitrous with the money you saved. Yes you can blow your motor to bits with nitrous but that is because you can stuff way more oxygen and fuel into the combustion chamber then you can with a turbo or supercharger. So just don't go crazy and have realistic goals for the HP you want to make. It is much better then a turbo or supercharger.

First, tell us what all has been done to the 306. It can make a big difference to know the strength of the internals, the air flow capacity of the heads and intake, etc.
