Turbo Chevelle 383

Hey Guys,
I have some free time on my hands and was wondering if anyone has ever boosted a 383 in a Chevelle before. I have a brand new turbo laying around and a chevelle, so I wondered what the hell? Any pros and cons i should know about before I jump into it?

Thanks,

Mike

If the 383 does not have a low compression ratio its not going to work very well on pump gas
without a intercooler or water methanol injection.

You can't slap just any turbo onto the engine. It needs to be sized for Engine, VE, RPM, CID and power level. Im sure its been done.
