11-09-10, 07:49 PM
First of all I am dont know that much about turbo kits. The first thing I have is, are the turbo kits on ebay worth anything? Why are they so cheap and what is the down side of those kits. Second question i have is my motor capable of running a turbo.
My motor is a Keith Craft 306
I think the bottom end is a Keith Craft crank and rod set
forged 9.5 to 1 pistons
ford motosport x-cam
trick flow track heat heads
1.7 trick flow rocker
trick flow upper and lower intake that has beenport matched to the heads
Any help are info would really help me out. What do you guys think?

anything can run a turbo, i ran a turbo for over 3 years on a stock v6.

what kind of pistons does it have?

also no the ebay kits are not worth the money, never mind worth a sh*t lol

What block, fuel system, and what are you tuning the car with?

Stay away from ebay!

Look into B&G turbo, and the Corral guys really like ON3turbo kits (bang for the buck)

You could run a Master Power T70 on that motor (500$ turbo) it would be great on 9psi.

I have a 255 pump intank. I know I have to get bigger injectors. It is a stock block. I have a tweaker system that i can tune the car.

I would like to say if I could run some 10's int his that would be great. I looked at the kits on ON3turbo. Are this kits good and do they last?

I've installed 2 On 3 kits on my cars. Just sold my 90 after a year with the base On3 kit and no problems. My other car is apart right now but I've had the On3 Kit w the upgraded MP70 turbo on it for over a year. W the 331, TFS190 heads, Fcam, Victor EFI intake, 42lb injectors it made 497 rwhp at 4psi. And promptly split the block in half! I am getting ready to install an On3 kit on my new 87 notch project. Great bang for the buck and no problems in over a year.
