Trust me, I am not a fan of street racing. Why risk the ticket and possibly the life of a civilian when I can get more traction at the track anyways.

Alright the new serpentine belt is on and all I can say is the way Vortech routed the belt is ****ing retarded.. The whole job took about 3 hours because I had to remove the supercharger and then the new belt would not fit without some extreme persuasion and the proper use of some four letter words. Hopefully this is the last belt I will have to do for a long time.

I didn't mean street racing I meant off road as in race car.

Gotcha. I'd love to build a race car but I don't have the time to put into racing and maintaining it

How about installing a big ol' single turbocharger off of a greasy diesel truck?
You know, an old school, DIY, budget build... Down and dirty.

As interesting as a build like that would be, I don't have anywhere near the level of fabrication skills to build something like that. Plus I'm sure a diesel turbo is going to be way to big for my car

Yes! Like the Rotsun... With a hater pipe sticking out of the hood!


Actually, the guys that use wrecking yard turbos look for one that comes off of a diesel engine that is roughly double the displacement of the gas engine that they want to install it on. So a turbo from an 8ish litre diesel should work on our engines.

You have the skills JDF...They are perhaps under-developed, but I'm positive that they are there. Just like everything else in life, you need to put them to practice, and make mistakes, before they will become honed to a fine point.

Maybe if I were more attached to the car I would consider it, but I'm a big fan of letting someone else design the kit and buying it from them.

Understandable. I tend to lean in that direction as well.

What made me start thinking about junkyard turbos is, I've been considering adding some power to my pickup recently. I usually prefer NA, but I'm afraid that it will decrease the driveability if I build it for the horsepower goals that I have in mind. I have a stock, low mileage, low compression, 460 engine that would be perfect for boost. And I would be able to get the power that I want without sacrificing too much driveability. The problem is, there is very little aftermarket support for a a 25 year-old truck... So there are no blower/turbo kits available. Luckily, that doesn't seem to deter everyone, and there is fair amount of internet information available to sift through, and read about the different clever ways that people add boost on a budget.
I still don't know what I want to do yet... Maybe nothing! Lol. It's interesting to read all of the different opinions that people have on the subject though.

Minor update for those that care. I had a couple packages show up today, of course install got messed up a little bit so now I'm stuck waiting again. And I also had this happen on the 4th. Good news is that I've got great compression all around still. I need to pull the plugs back out later this week to make sure my piston didn't get damaged.

These are the wheels I should have gone with all along
But on the bright side I'm actually making some money off of the GT500s

Well I pulled Cyl.7 plug back out because I noticed a slight miss while cruising. This is what I discovered. I haven't decided what to do yet but suggestions are welcome.

Forged internals, 4V swap. Mixed with a turbo. 👍

The car can be down as long as necessary, it's motor my DD so there isn't a major rush. But I don't want to keep it down longer than necessary. Budget is flexible, I can have the car down longer as I aquire money for everything. That being said I'm not willing to spend a bunch of money doing like a Coyote swap.

My current thought is a terminator swap.

Termi swap will be damn near as much as Coyote lol.

Replace with Vic motor and just roll?

Well assuming the combustion chamber isn't chewed up, pull it and have it bore/honed and then forged Pistons and prep for any parts for a turbo swap?

See from the limited research I've done a Coyote swap is still gonna be near $9k- $10k if I want to do it right. The cheapest Coyote I can find in my area is an F-150 motor from LKQ for $2,500. I'd want to swap to Boss 302 exhaust cams and GT intake cams. Then I would need a swap oil pan, exhaust, K-member, gas pedal, and control pack. I don't know how well the 3650 can handle 7krpm shifts but I don't think it's very good.

For a terminator swap I would try to stay with the 3650 and do a 26 spline input shaft upgrade unless I find a T-56 for a good price. The most recent motor I had found was $3,500 with 56k miles and that included the engine harness.

Another reason I have is that N/A cars lose a bunch of power up here.

I'd rather not deal with potentially blowing another motor down the road if I did just a used 2V pullout. I'd rather just do it right the first time (hopefully) and be done with it.

I considered that, but between machine work (assuming cylinder walls were scored) and block prep for new rods and pistons I would rather just motor swap it. For now I think I'm gonna stay supercharged instead of turbo swapping

As long as those 56k miles weren't accumulated a quarter mile at a time, that Terminator engine will probably be the most economical swap.
And you could sell your silver circle thingy and the Bullitt manifold as a package, and that will likely fund a great deal of the swap!

I still think that you should put a big ol' turbo off of a Peterbilt, or something, on it...The vaper's panties will be absolutely DRIPPING!

Lol it would be a waterfall dripping from their panties.

Unfortunately I think that specific engine has sold already. I agree that it's the most economical and selling the Vortech + Bullitt intake is exactly what I was planning on doing

Tear down has begun. I'm still undecided on what drivetrain to throw in it yet, but if I can get some of these items sold then I'll be happy.

I did have a few questions. In order to sell my Bullitt intake as a "complete setup" what will I need to include with that?

Basically, everything in the second picture, including the alternator, is necessary for the manifold install. Also, the throttle cable is a Bullitt specific part.

Ok I wasn't sure if the cable was needed as well. Is there anything specific about the coolant lines by the firewall that I'll need to include? How much are these full setups selling for?
