    I am going to purchase a 51 Cranbrook. I was interested in seeing what others have done in the way of a turbo/supercharger. I'm not turning it into a racecar or anything but I would like more than the 97 hp from the 3.6L it comes with. All I have been seeing is dual carb intakes and aluminum...

    Hey guys! For better or worse I'm moving from my 400sbc to a gen V 454 I plan to stoke to a 489(or there abouts). with my 400 I could afford aluminum heads off the back so I ran 9.3:1 compression with 10 pounds of boost on a intercooled centrifugal no problem. I don't have the casting...
