G'day all,
Have any of you petrol head geniuses installed a turbo into your 100 series PETROL engines?
If so, hows it going?
I am considering a hair dryer for my 100 series just for the hell of it?

If you dont have a 100 series PETROL turbo and have no experience with one than please refrain from replying, I just want to hear from those of you that have one, Thankyou anyway.

All the best guys and thanks in advance.
Regards
Brendan...100 series DUAL CAB UTE...

I had a 4.5 litre 80 series which was fitted a safari intercooled turbo. Was an awesome car 230kph top speed 0-100 in 6.9 sec. Loved blowiing away SS commodores from the lights. The look on their faces was priceless. Never had any probs, apart from going through brakes and petrol at a massive rate. :-)

Turbo + Gas injection , the only way to fly . There is a little mucking around with a piggy back computer , but apart from that , no real issues

It sounds like a great combo Eric but I'm not sure if the gas injectors will take a positive boost pressure. I know the guys who supply the LPG fitter next door at work with their sequential gas vapour injection kits were thinking of building one for the Ford XR6 Turbo cars but I don't think they've done one as yet. But, if they do build one those injectors would be perfect for a petrol/LPG turbo install.
Regards Andrew.

Speak to the guys at pro gas in huntigdale Melbounre , they have blown alot of money in development on gas injection and now its paying off. Be very carefull , there are a lot of dud kits on the market . For instance , the boemo eng kit , looses all gas programing in the gas ecu if the battery is diconnected . Not nice lol

catch is you can't get them directly on oz from safarri - need to export/import 25 sets!!!
