i am swapping a .060 over 351w with a ported stock heads and a cam upgrade into my 74 f100 shortbed. im bought the motor preassemled from a friend and he cant remember the CR so im gonna comp test it and see what i come up with. if it turns out to have low CR i want to turbo it. heard u can make pretty good power numbers with a turbo upgrade. would a foxbody turbo kit be a good way to go. i kno for a fact i have ALOT more under hood room than a foxbody so space isnt an issue and im a good fabricator so i can make brackets for the intercooler and stuff but how efficient are the foxbody kits?

I would start here.

The quality of your rotating assembly will determine whether or not you should be considering a turbo.

Your stock block crank and rods will be fine with the turbo.... WHAT PISTONS DO YOU HAVE? you need a good forged piston!

The best thing for you to do is find a buddy who can fabricate a turbo kit for you if you want to save money.... You will have to fabricate the Fox body trubo kit to fit with your truck. 

The information above is good, go look at the turboforums

turbo forums used to be a good place.  Its a joke anymore (IMHO).

How efficient is WHICH foxbody kit?

I'd rather be a fool who is loyal to his friends than a POS that jumps ship to save face. We were wrong in the end, but nobody can ever call us disloyal. I can live with that.

Hellion kits are nice.  That is a good size turbo for the cubes also.  It should make plenty of power at the bottom without being starved at the top

THat is a pretty large spread when talking power adder.  You will need to use good fuel and start your timing table very conservative.  Work up from there... the smallest slip up will grenade a hyper piston.

im planning on running stock bottom end with probe forged dish pistons with vic jr heads and a vic jr intake with a blow through for now with twin 76s on 6# boost...for now. eventually im planning on building a dart 427 with a callies crank and h beam rods. with kaase p38 heads and super vic (drilled for EFI) and something like fast efi. eventually id like to be making 1000+ hp with the twin 76s and a dart block
