Looking at going turbo

Also at what point do you forge everything in the motor. looking at just doing a low boost set-up. Obviously dont want motor issues. Just trying to figure out what I can get away with safely.

Once you get much past 500 rwhp, that's when I'd start going inside the engine and forge it. Low boost? Just keep it under 9 psi(intercooled) or so....but you could probably boost a little more with a methanol injection system.

Iron blocks can hold more boost over aluminum. 7-9lbs is what I see with the aluminum blocks. We have a local guy runing a turbo on a 5.3 putting some serious numbers on stock bottom end, 317 heads and truck manifolds. Just don't skimp out on the oil feed/return lines for the turbo. He had one blow on a hard pull and toasted the engine.http://www.ls1.com/forums/f7/my-6-liter-build-174257/
