couple of FI questions

I understand the stock bottom end can only handle 6-8 psi, but why is the stock block so limited? Is a forged bottom end the remedy?

Second, which members have successfully fabbed up a front mount turbo?

Pros & cons versus a supercharger?

As always thanks HTC!

The stock cast pistons are the weakest link, then the cast connecting rods. The block and a forged 6.1L crank will take 1000hp no problem.

I've always played with turbos as I greatly dislike belt drives and I find turbos more interesting and challenging to tinker with.

Stu ghost03hemi should be along sooner or later. He has a front mount that he did himself. I believe there are a few more as well.

Frostking, arocketman, charged392, Hemidup, Sharadon Performance and many others have been a big influence.

What are you looking to build? What's your horse power goals. Daily driver? Do some track runs? Beat down on a few local ford/chevy/toyoyta trucks? A few mustangs?
