    Just curious to see if it's a fellow FABO'er who's doing the /6 turbo build.

    If so, would love to talk to you about the plan and keep up with it as you build it.

    I've got my 340 in with Dennis for some stroking and am going to be queueing up my /6 next.

    Yes, that is my /6 he's got down there. It's been down there for months now. I can tell you all about it.

    Glad I saw this post - I was searching the SW forum to try and find a shop/mechanic to swap the /6 into my engine. My garage isn't going to be ready for that this year.

    You know anyone on your side of town that would want to do the install and freshen up the k-member while we're at it? I've got tons of parts piling up and not enough time.

    I'll shoot you an IM once I know when my engine is going to be done.

    It looks like Maurer is doing a great job on the /6. Even though it's been at his shop for months now the vast majority of that time has been him waiting for me to bring him rods and pistons. I'll post the build details when I get some time.

    So here's the build:

    engine:
    stock iron block over .60
    stock '71 iron head w/ 3-angle and 1.7"/1.44" valves and pockets cleaned up
    comp 264 grind
    offy intake w/ water jackets
    arp head studs (should i get main studs before assembly?)
    tom molner forged rods (essentially k1 7" rods)
    wiseco pistons (if my math and machining is accurate i should land around 8:3:1 static w the piston a hair below the deck)
    romac red balancer
    holley 500 2bbl, planning to send this to the carb ship in CA for blowthrough setup (any other suggestions?)
    going to run a gt32 w/ internal waste gate for now...

    I'm going to have an old co-worker of mine build the manifold, ic, ic plumbing all custom! It should be insane, the guy is a metal genius.

    drive train:
    rebuilt 904 w/ a shift kit (Maurer as well, dude seems to know how to do it all)
    8 3/4 rear end w/ 2.76 gears and a fresh re-build, clutch type (again Maurer)

    For fuel management, obviously there isn't much to a blow through. I'm going to use a mallory fpr w/ the carb and a wide band. I've had a new stock tank modified for a vertical spiral sump w/ walbro 255 in tank. I'm going to run -6AN both ways.

    And I'm still on the fence about ignition, I may see how far my orange box can take me w/ a stock electronic distributor before i investing in anything else. I really want to see what it can do with an old school KISS setup.

    i think mains are like rods... you need to have the mains line honed as they have more pressure against them, making a tighter fit...

    That's a good point. Maybe I'll leave good enough alone with the stock bolts.

    Quick update, the drive train is all built up and the guys at SS/AFX installed the new parts and did a bunch of suspension and fuel system upgrades to support my future boost!

    Excited to get going on the turbo system build.

    FYI, he summers in Colorado, so you may have to wait until September or so to get any new work started.

    Dennis does great work. Since I've gotten my /6 running I've over boosted my engine to 20+ PSI which should have put north of 500+ ft lbs of torque down to the wheels. The head gasket popped but the bottom end didn't even care. Spins like a top still.
