Not a bad deal at all. Looked for a phone# but couldn't find one.

Mine is an 8.2 combo, Just a .060 347.
 I had a 67 short bed with a 352 way back, Wish I still had it.

Back to the basics lol. I'm on the search for a turbo at this point & would like to hear what you think would be the ideal turbo size for me. I'm talking compressor & exhaust a/r "sizes". What about "trim", I'm seeing p & q trim turbos & not sure what this means. Could someone please set me up with some numbers & maybe some insight as to what they mean?

Ideal based on what? Back pressure? Power?  Under hood fitment?  Price? Etc.

Not sure about the back pressure question.

600 hp with room to grow to 800 or so.

Car will have a 3" cowl hood, Wanting to stay under it.

It has been said that 1 5/8" headers will work so I will assume a 2 1/2" cross over pipe will be fine also. Not sure what size down pipe I need ( 3 or 3.5 ).

Ideally I want to get a custom hr cam ground & run around on it na until I can gather the pieces necessary for the turbo setup. I am not sure if the car will run well with a turbo specific cam w/o the turbo or not.

Just looking for numbers specific to size & correct for my engine so I know what to look for.

A 76mm or 78mm will easily fit the bill, keep the packaging relatively easy - oh, and you can more than likely not need to get a true custom set-up.  You can save money with the advise Mighty Mouse gave, too.

Ok, 76mm it is. Now what about the compressor & exhaust housing a/r? Or will just any old 76mm pretty much do? Mighty Mouse mentioned keeping the a/r small for the street. I have seen 76's with a/r's as small as .61 up to .96, Just trying to determine what a/r will be the best for the street without sacrificing performance later when turned up.

I will be going with the low buck approach Mighty Mouse suggested. I can't see paying a bunch of $$ for something that may not fit. Will the flanges be Ok on standard flipped shorties? They look a little thin (pacesetters).
