    This guy on the corvette forum is doing a custom single turbo on his 383Lt1 Stroker motor

    "My thumper turbo arrived today. Man that is one big ass giant turbo. It is weight 67bls according the UPS shipping label.

    "Hot is 1.89 and cold side is .81. We might have to swap out the 1.89 to a 1.5 A/R that way it should make full boost by around 3000rpm on a 383LT1 motor.

    ps. Correction. The hot side is 1.39 not 1.89. I read it wrong.

    Bruce"

    "the turbo will be mounting in the back storage compartment. It will has it self contain oiling system and a oil cooler. I will use a custom water to air intercooler. The IC will be sitting at the same location as where my supercharger normally sit. We might use a 3" Y aluminum tubing from the compressor (cold side) that way we will have 3" aluminum tubing on the driver side and passanger side coming out to meet the water to air intercooler. From the IC out to the throttle body.

    Mouting the turbo in the compartment is not that far, as some of you guy may think. Rick (Baldturbofreak) measure his front mount turbo and compare to the compartment. It is only about 12" further. Which is not that bad. He says his previsous 355LT1 make full boost around 3000rpm. So on my 383LT1 should make full around 3000-3500rpm. Since the stroker motor is already making good torque down low. The turbo will be blanket and heat shield. So there won't any fire and thing getting burn in there."

    That is one huge mofo of a turbo....he plans on making 1000+hp

    just thought it was interesting...

    3/17/2005 update

    FULL Boost = turbo capacity, unless he says otherwise. he doesn't.

    that turbo will easily blow 35 pounds-- probably more.
