    I need turbo information,please

    Anything and everything concerning turbos. I'm considering using either a LS engine or a traditional SBC. Dont know which. Single or twin I havent decided either. I have never fooled with turbos before so all the lingo and sizes are foreign to me. Any sites,links,opinions would be greatly appreciated! My projected goal is for extreme street-ability.I mean a dead stock idle. For an idea of what Im shooting for the car now has a BBC in it and weighs 2990lbs without driver.I know that whenit goes back on the street that just replacing the original windows will give me 100 lbs worth of weight. I weighed it when they come out. Add door panels,wipers,stereo (gotta have tunes) air conditioning and a passenger seat and I would say it's fair to assume the car will end up around 3500 lbs with me in it going down the road.

    So,3500 lbs with a single or twin turbo'd SBC or LSI...what do I need to run 6.0 in the 1/8 mile or close to it (under that is an option as well ) and still retain full street manners and reliability. Fuel mileage is a concern as well.I dont want a 6 miles to the gallon cruiser. I would settle for a minimum of 15-17 mpg.


    Who's done this or seen it done? I know its doable,I just need direction and want all the feedback I can get. Thanks!
