Lots of ways to go about building an SC with Turbocharger. Most important is to line out your goals and budget.
Thanks for the thread link, Brian. Not sure why I couldn't find it...

used a stock turbo and euro exhaust went with a Tial wastegate. Some things you should consider to ensure decent engine life: EFI (I used a megasuqirt kit supplied by Tony Bitz), a better ignition (I used EDIS controlled by the Megasquirt ECU), an intercooler, and I added a blow off valve and the drivability went through the roof. I limit my boost to .5 bar (7 psi) and drain oil back to the engine sump.
This sounds very cool! Off to do some pricing research.

Thanks for the help guys!
The Uncertainty Principle. It proves we can't ever really know...what's going on. So it shouldn't bother you. Not being able to figure anything out. Although you will be responsible for this on the mid-term. -Larry Gopnik
