Post twin turbo small block

Does anybody have any experience putting turbos on a carbureted smallblock? I have the opportunity to buy a book that supposedly has everything you need to know but I'm just wondering if it is too hard to do. Ive read books on adjusting carbs so that shouldn't be a problem. I think it would be the coolest freakin thing to have a 66 mustang with shaved shock towers and a twin turbo 347. WHat do you guys think?

I'm not much on power adders, but a TT set-up on most anything would make for a pretty wicked ride! I know that Car Craft had mentioned a while back an engine that Keith Duttweiler (I know that I butchered the spelling! <img src="graemlins/pain.gif" border="0" alt="[pain]" /> ) runs that is a TT set-up with something like a 273. He pulls into the 7's with that thing!

Go to this site my friend. Hang around for a couple weeks and learn the ropes. Then start asking some questions. A prerequisite to this site would be two books; Turbochargers by Hugh McInnes and Maximum Boost by Corky Bell. These books will teach you the theory behind turbos give you the information needed to build a system. There are hundreds of guys on this site that have built the car you are talking about. I am recommending the books because undeducated questions usually get you a bunch of flaming. Once they get to know you you will find there is probably no better place to find the information for turbo systems. Some of the guys have years of experience and are very sharp.

I am in the process of finishing my Turbocharged small block S-10(Hence the user name) and the site I gave you has been a ton of help.
