lf you`re not sure when you can swing the turbo conversion don`t sweat it, running low comp pistons for a while won`t be as bad as you think.l ran a turbo motor on straight fuel injection for a while and it didn`t kill me,it was still fast enough to have fun in. Good motivation to complete it also..
What exactly would turbo head gaskets do for me? Does it affect the compression or does it just make the engine more capable of handling a turbo?
