ODD question l know, but l have seen forum postings previously of folks playing with turbochargers on a T engine.
What work is required to the engine, what pistons would work best with a turbo?
Standard alu pistons would probably work fine, lowering the compression shouldn't be needed in a T
The problems might be the added load on the bottom end if you use all the extra power, what crank to use & to add an oil circulation system etc. (Plus it looks a bit modern for my taste)
Here are a couple of threads with turbo T engines:
And here is a thread on superchargers - with some turbo info: http://www.mtfca.com/discus/messages/50893/57130.html?1213979542
Fortunately now we have plenty of crank choices (and even 5 main blocks available) so making the bottom live is manageable. I believe the head is a bit under-bolted. I think if a person went to perhaps 12mm studs and nuts of maybe even 1/2" studs and nuts they could probably get enough "clamping" when used with a copper shim head gasket (also available) to make it live. I have one of the new BB Rajo's and have thought some sort of "blower" might work nice. Through that all into a front wheel drive replica Indy car, hum.
Just use some NOX and be done with it.
G'day Jack, how are you and Cheryl.
NOX ..... Ouch.
One of the guys in our club rigged one up. He has since past,but at 94 years old,it was something to see. The car ran like a scalded hog!
If I was going to add a turbo I would probably add EFI. Consider you will be non era anyway. The early turbo cars (Corvairs, 2.3 Fords etc) problems were related to carburation. Cheap universal fit EFI systems are available along with crank trigger ignition
Don't forget the oil pump. I used to make jet engines out of old turbos, and those bearings go out fast without oil flowing.
