I wouldn't turbo a stock block unless you want to deal with a world of trouble and end up selling the car out of anger.

what i meant by stock block was stock bottom end, especially because you say it's a bit worn, 10lbs of boost on a tired motor ... i wouldnt chance it

i would think if you are going to run boost, you would want to run forged pistons

Well if you're gonna through the bottom end and replace the pistons, rods, etc, why don't you just stroke it? Although a 331 with mild boost may end up cracking the block...

And thus the story begins!

"I'm going to toss this turbo on a stock motor!"
"You need to rebuild it first bro, or it'll blow!"
"Ok, I'll go through it and replace the pistons, rering and bearing it!"
"If you're going to do all that, why not just build a 331/347, it'll be sick!"
"Oooooo!  Ok, for a little more money, I'm gonna build a 331/347, and put a turbo on it!"
"You're going to crack the stock block in half!"
"Damn, what can I do to keep from blowing the block up?"
"Dart block, or Windsor stroker!  Windsor stroker's probably FAR cheaper, plus you can make even MORE power!  You know, there's no replacement for displacement!"
"Hmm...dunno if it's gonna fit...and...and...and...yeah all that stuff."
"It'll fit, you just need 'x', 'y', and 'z' and you're good to go!"
"Really?  Damn, ok Windsor stroker it is!"

And there you have it.  If the guys got deep pocketbooks, insert 'build a dart block' where he decided on the stroker.

It never ends!

 Cheesy yep...right on


I did some of this tinkering back in the mid 90's. I put a blower on my stock 90 LX 5.0. It can work just make sure not to detanate it and run at least a 190L pump...a timing retard of some kind is a must. It works best with an improved exhaust sys too. I had a typical bolt on mid 13 sec 5.0. With the blower it went to mid 12's( i also installed a 65 mm TB and a  73 mm C&L mass air meter). The key is the tune. Just my experience anyways. Smiley
