I have a 99 chevy vortec 350 i want to build it for a single turbo the cheapest way. What should i use for a cam? What compression should i run ? Are the stock rods ok for this ?
Would it be better to up size my intake/exhaust valves? I want to build my own exhaust manifolds dose anyone have any ideas thanks

to go the cheapest possible elave the engine alone, just fab up your exhaust, and intake tracts and worry about fuel management- you can run a turbo on a stock engine with no modifications and moderate boost.

pretty much all chevy small blocks (GEN I)are the same (except the 400 small block) , 86 and up used a one piece rear main seal and the heads started using centerbolt valve covers
on the vortec heads .470 lift is the ABSOLUTE max you can use on, also using a different cam can and will cause problems with efi malfuctioning
8.5 to 1 is what most people who run turbos use for compression
