Default Re: XR6 to XR6 Turbo Impossible?

You can't really put the turbo on. The n/a motor has higher compression, maybe you could run 8-10psi max. Basically stock type power

Why not just do the exhaust and intake, tune on the n/a.. if you must do a cam? They will pretty much go with a stock turbo at that sort of power...

Problem is you can't wind up the boost on a turbo with your high compression engine, gearbox won't last either.

Try a centrifugal vortech on it. 8-10psi and it's unique. Plenty top end go, I've been in one. It sort of takes care of your high compression motor as the boost builds gradually peaking at top rpm. Just go fuel pump, vortech, injectors, tune and exhaust .. beaitiful

You can.

My brother is running an NA Barra with 15PSI on it. 500 RWHP on E85, 350 RWHP on 98.

Low boost is 10 PSI.

Hes looking to turn the boost up further for around the 650 mark & has sourced an FG F6 Long block to take that next step.

I may add that engine huffing 15 PSI he found at the dump, and took out top 6Cyl NA at AFD in 2019.

3rd year running in that Chassis.

But he is running a TR6060.
