Any recommendations on what works and what not?
I am planning on 24x12x3 Spearco intercooler and a full TO4B from turbonetics, plannig on Super H3 but considering other options. I want them to be good enough for 450hp at least.

Any personal experience?

thanks in advance

Re: Gettin new (and bigger)I/C and Turbo any recom

Turbonetics should be able to recomend a turbo to meet your needs. BTW, my 240turbo just ran a 13.38 @ 107.1 w/the stock T3. Can't wait to get that upgrade. Good luck!!!

my 2 cents

The spearco that size will run you close to $800. Bell Engineering sells a 27x10x3 unit with top and bottom tanks for $500. This is a very impressive unit and will easily handle 600hp. If you are going with the full TO4B turbo, the 'SuperH' compressor wheel and an O-trim turbine wheel with a .81 a/r housing should do the trick to produce 450hp and still provide nice boost response. You might want to look into the TO4E turbo's, they offer a more aggressive design, but have slight larger compressor housing that require the turbo to be shimmed off the manifold so the compressor housing doesn't hit the exhaust manifold. Good luck.

My biased opinion

Carlos you too have been bitten by the bug 240turbo has some good advice, and he has gone through quite a few upgrades . I personally bought his old T04E-57MM with .63A/R . It should be arriving in a few weeks . 240turbo has spent quite a bit of cash on his Z, but still knows how to get the most bang for the buck . The T04E I bought from flows 400 to 450 hp, and has a low surge line . This is good on a bigger turbo because at low RPM turbulence can occur, and can put unwanted stress on turbo . It also has a wide range of good effeciency . The T04E was originally for diesel trucks to give maximum power output over entire flow range . I expect high twelves with a starion intercooler and FPR. I have never been in a car that fast . Get 20+MPG, run circles around em . I am sure I will be smiling from ear to ear when I eat my first big block . I thank you Carlos for your info over the last year, it was your advice that made me buy the turbo motor for my 78 in the first place .
