Procharged or turbo?!?!?!?
ok, so here we go, please feel free to go nuts and tell me your honest opinion , my boost exposure is limited and ive never boosted a NA car before.
I have an ls1 in my 71 chevelle. and ive always wanted more hp for it via boost.. so thats my plan.. i only want about 475-575 which ive read is completely doable on a stock ls1..
and yes i know i could build the engine, but ide rather do it via boost. and yeah i my tranny will be my weak point, ill build it when it breaks. This car is only driven 1-3K a year. and isnt really "raced" so to speak, aside from showing civic's whats up...
So here goes my questions, discussion... do i go procharger or turbo...
procharger is about 4K+, new 3500 for the kit, plus injectors, boost gauge, and tuning, maybe a few incidentals.
turbo, for a cheap cx twin turbo kit.. well just call it 2500.. + some exhaust work, oil lines (which seem like a pain) ide be doing it via the timing chain cover, as i really dont wanna remove this engine again to do via the pan. plus injectors, gauge and a few other incidentals.. so im figuring about 3500...
The supercharger seems like way less work to install which is why im leaning this way, plus my expensive exhaust already in place wont need to be modified. and for the nominal additional cost why not go this route.
please rant... thanks.....
