There are a million different variables to consider when choosing to go forced induction. Before we can tell you what you would be happiest with we need to know more details about the car/plans you have for it. Is this going to just be a mild street car or full blown drag car? What type suspension setup do you have (Tubular k member and front end is required for turbos)? Are you going to get better internals? How much power do you want to make (be realistic)?

Ok if its going to be a street car and you don't have a tubular suspension already then go with the procharger. The internals of the motor is key to how much power you can run. And most people mess up and think its just the crank, rods, and pistons are what important, but fail to realize that the hardware used to put everything together is just as much if not more important to how far you can push it. Find out the internals along with what kind of main studs, rod bolts, head bolts, etc. were used if it has been rebuilt

Make damn sure it gets forged crank and rods. Lincoln mark viii's were cast cranks. And like Cody said it needs the proper hardware holding it together too. ARP is a good place to get that. Still what year Lincoln block?

True. But turbo installs are much more in depth, turbo kits are much more expensive, and he would have to completely change his whole suspension up front. You may make more per lb of boost but if 500hp is all he is wanting then why spend 3 times the money to just say "Oh well I'm running 2 psi less than you are"? Just get a blower and run a little smaller pulley

The basic kit is 2k. Then add kmber and tubular arms. Not sure if the basic kit even Includes injectors or fuel pump or mass airflow sensor. And its a much more difficult install than a blower

I know nothing about the on3performance but the single turbo kit from American muscle is almost 6k. A turbo kit for 2k probably isn't worth buying but that is just my humble opinion but I've found that the cheap way is frequently the worst/wrong way

I've been told the product itself is fine, but I've seen numerous reports of missing essential parts.

The on3 kit is more than 2k and the turbo, wastegate and BOV with their kits are junk. The piping is fine. And he has to do suspension work because the turbo kits won't fit around the stock k member

Buy 2 leaf blowers and pipe them in. That's different LOL.

For the low price you can upgrade the turbo and the fuel system bov and be under some of the other kits

I'll go against the grain and recommend Vortech. Cheapest route, still quality stuff, V3 requires no tapping of the oil pan and blower oil isn't very expensive, good power for stock internals, fuel management is provided with kit along with a voucher for a base tune (means no towing to your tuner!), cxracing makes an intercooler kit that you can integrate down the road if you want more power at the same boost. Then everyone died. The end.
