1600dp budget turbo build

Post by woolardgarage » Thu Jun 28, 2018 6:25 pm

Ok here is the build I'm thinking off let me know if there is anything wrong with this build.

Stock case
Stock Crank
Stock cam
Stock Pistons and barrels
041 Heads
Forged 1.4:1 rockers
VW650 dual Valve springs
Supergrip snakeskin valves
Chromoly pushrods
Titanium Retainers
Lightweight 8 dowel flywheel
Chromoly Gland nut
CB performance Turbo header
Dellorto side draft 40 carb
Used t25 or t3 turbo rebuilt from like a saab or subaru
MSD 6AL box
MSD 2step
Pentronix flamethrower Distributor
Bosch blue 009 coil

Might have left out a few parts. This is going in my 1969 standard bug for some mild street fun. I want to make between 120-180 hp to the crank at 7-14psi (I'm trying to be as realistic as possible). I also want to redline at 5.5-6k. Let me know if any of this seems like it will work together or if my goals aren't realistic. Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Why the stock cam? Probably a little wild on springs and such there are folks with bigger cams making more power with less.

Why not the stock cam, dual patterned, great low end, the most successful grind ever offered?
I would consider bee-hives or something with steel retainers,aluminum/titanium ones wear out faster.
Yeah some may call it overkill, but you can't have too much overkill.

I don't think I worded that well. I meant vw650s are probably a little wild, if using a stock cam. I guess I look at it like if its open and you are looking at it and considering any kind of performance why not change it.
