Re: Turbo 200ci

Just get you one of these and go from there. I have never heard of boxing in the entire carb for a blow through turbo set up. When I do the turbo setup for my 250 I will be using one of these carb hats.

I'm looking for a small bump in compression. Probably around 9.0:1 to make up for the drop that the can will cause. Probably need to get to around 53-51cc chambers, I think!

About how much should be milled of the head on a 200 out of a 67 mustang. I plan on 264h 110lc cam, dual out header, and dsII/msd 6 ignition? Not looking for a huge increase, just a bump and good sound!

Re: 144 with Alum head?

I do not think that it would be worth all the trouble. The 144 has the same dimensions as the 200 so would be close to the same weight. The biggest thing you will need to worry about is the 144 only having 4 mains. I would go with a 7 main 200 or 250 before you blow the money on the aluminum head.
