    1995 formula

    Project car!!

    I wanted to get somemore input on my project car, the 95 formula that I'v decided to do a LS1 conversion on. I'm in the procese of ordering all my new suspension parts including the new K-rail from BMR. The moter is goin to end up being a stroked 383 with a 4.0 stroke with dished pistons (forged aluminum) 8.5 to 1 compresion. Cam lob is still undecided. I'm going to probably us mildly ported LS6 heads. I am going to stay with the fuel injection so here is my delema?? The reason the compression is so low, as you probably already guessed is because I am going to either supercharge this motor or go with twin smaller turbo's rather than one bigger one. I would like some opinions on witch way you guys feel is best? Please remember I am aware that the install on the turbo's is much more dificult but I already planed ahead by having the new K-rail made for just that type of install just in case I go that route. Please let me know your thoughts???

    Thanks

    have you looked into a rear mount twin turbo setup? if I had the money that is the way I'd go.

    APS twin turbo will fit very well and have greater reliability than most any other setup IMO.
    The 383 setup isnt too friendly with ls1 engines. Get a 402/408 setup

    The aftermarket k-member will make a world of different in the clearance.
