Hey, thanks for the info!

I did have a few questions about engine set-ups.

My 350 sbc... I don't know the exact numbers, but no more than 300 or so hp. would I be safe to assume that a single hx-35 would be okay to use?

Also... how much boost can i run without worrying about having to upgrade engine parts?

I'm still a bit lost on this comparing boost and rpms between diesel and gas. Is it generally half the boost at twice the rpm, or did it just happen to be that way with your particular comparison?

.... is it possible to use a turbo on a carburated engine?

One last question... what is a good source of information that I could look at? I'm a bit lost when it comes to all these turbocharging details.
