Not all the same. Some are inline some are flanged ect. Lots of them just give you the "noise" at best. Quality units increase throttle response as well as help out with turbo lag, they also will actuate accurately and properly.

All based on your intercooler/piping setup. What works better for your setup? Flanged, IC pipe will have to be flanged accordingly. Inline, will install "inline" with the IC pipe.

Ouch.

Well then, it would install between your hot charge pipe and the carb.

Btw you never answered my questions concerning tuning. How are you monitoring your air/fuel ratio and or controlling the timing?

As turbo spools and starts producing positive intake manifold pressure, the timing needs to be retarded accordingly.

There are no electronics on these engines. What did they do before fuel injection and computers?

Dont worry about cam. Spend the money on quality components for the kit as well as your tuning components.

Doesn't look like your getting any ignition control out of that setup. Just a amped up duraspark setup from what that looks like. You need the timing to adjust as the boost is being entered into the engine. Carb, yes you will for sure need a jet kit. Make sure you pickup up wideband for that portion of the puzzle.

Stick with it. It seems like a lot and yeah putting together something thats not going grenade the rest of the engine is going to nickel and dime you a bit. Trust me end result is worth it, you wont regret it.

You started this thread saying you want to be different! You can do this. It might take a while to drum up the funds, but so will the 351.

I just searched a craigslist quick in your area and found that within a few minutes. Take the time to do a little digging, quality used parts will build you that kit quick. Also found a few msd 6 series ignitions with a coil in your area for around $100. Grab the BTM add on and your good for the ignition.

Not really easier. Still need to jet the carb, tune in the timing ect. Forced induction is going to have the same theories applied to it regardless of turbo or supercharger. Your still stuffing more air into the motor as well as increasing internal loads.

This is the video i saw and i am still aware of that but i feel that it will be easier than trying to dick around with the exhaust to get it right.

Don't be afraid to step outside your comfort level. Look at it as Its only metal it cannot out smart me. An old timer once told me "Bottles are for babies and supercharger well they blow!" Ive worked on and or been in blown/n20/turbo cars/trucks and enjoy all three differently. However I really think with your setup you will have a street animal with a decent turbo setup.

Not hating on blowers either but you are putting more "drag" on the engine in order to produce extra power. The turbo is the exact opposite, its using your engines byproduct to produce you more power. If you like blower noise, pickup a gear drive lol.

With that setup you posted, you have ALL the same components involved in your turbo setup. From the looks of things just as much money and fab work as well. Also if you find the need to "turn it up" no need to order out pulleys, pickup a manual boost controller for $30 and you can go from wastegate pressure to however much your heart desires and or bottom end can handle lol. Promise you, turbo powered car will make more power given your setup.
