What is the best setup for a '72 240 without swapping out the engine, and what is the power increase????

Thanks

RE: Dual Carbs vs. Triple Carbs vs. Turbo Upgrade?

If you don't want and engine swap, then try nitrous oxide. A stock L24 should be able to handle about 75 hp NOS if it is in good condition. I once turbocharged a stock L26 that had a compression ratio of 8.8 to 1 and it easily handled 7psi. These motors are pretty strong and so NOS should be no problem. Good luck!!!

L24T

actually im re-building the L24 in my garage right now so i can bolt Ian's turbo up to it. i did however use L16 pistons instead of the L24 pistons to lower C/R.

by the way Ian, ummm...i forgot to get the turbo L28 oil strainer, you wouldnt happen to have one laying around would you? =)
