Re: 240/300 turbo in a 1979 RX7

Yeah great idea, i've had the same one myself! We've discussed the 'turbo 300 maverick' on here before and he might be running stock cast crank and rods but he is almost certainly running the hypereutectic pistons from the 95/96 truck, and ARP rod bolts, and most likely has polished and shot peened...

But there is a thermal and mechancal stress limit to everything, and Stock cast pistons will be a weak link in a 300 under boost. wow atleast some one got it. thermal control (intake heat water/air...

Re: Boost on a 300

I wanna see some pics of dyno sheets and at least a video to prove this 400 some odd horse stock 300 with 25 PSI boost. IIRC, there is a guy on here who turbo'd a 300 and wrecked some pistons with boost levels nowhere near 25 PSI. I highly doubt the cast pistons (stock) would hold up under that muc...

Re: turbo 300

Hey Will, just think what it might run in a car that weighed about 800lbs lighter :wink: Or a Econoline truck at 2400lbs! Well....2593 with me in it! :twisted: Maverick11, We need some specifics. Weight? / 3028# Density Altitude? / thats up to the waste gate? :roll: Gears? / 3.25 Tires? / 295/65/15...
