Re: Idiot's guide to turbocharging the falcon 6

Just thought I should clear up the carb hat size. A larger diameter carb hat will not put more stress on the carb stud. The area of the carburator is the only place where the pressure can act to put stress on the carb stud. The area of the carburetor doesn't change. Sure, there is more area in a bi...

I have read that most TBI style injectors start having issues around 20 psi. In theory around 150 hp is about all you are going to get out of any single injector. Once you get above about 35 lbhr they start getting expensive. Over 50 lbhr are kinda rare and even more money. The GM tbi's are by far ...

Incorrect. Peak torque occurs at peak VE.

Peak power occurs at the point where the balance of RPM and VE is optimum.

100% VE @ 1000 RPM makes less power than 75% VE @ 5000 rpm, for example.

Be very careful welding those back together.

And while I've never had a weld fail, I would be extremely cautious and deliberate welding my own control arms.
