HI im michael, im building a 302 for my 2.3l fox and i want to eventually put a turbo on it... (its not in my budget right now) but i also want to put some nitrous on it i have no idea what shot. i was wondering what i should do a single big turbo around a 70mm or 2 smaller turbos around 32mm... and on the single turbo how does that work with the headers going into a single collecter. i know turbos are pretty expensive the 70mm t-series from turbonetics is like 1400 (thats more than i have in the entire car including 302) haha but how much am i looking at for total? including piping, headers, turbo, intercooler, blow off valve, blow through carb, and if i forgot anything please tell me... and which is better 2 smaller turbos or one big one? and if anybody has a set up similar with all this about how much horse power am i looking at on spray with roller rockers, edelbrock performer, and 289 heads (smaller combustion chambers) intake and everything listed for the turbo...

why do any forced induction? It's expensive as hell and a real pain...
I'd recommend doing a great stroker 331/347 in your 302...using a good block with forged internals and aluminum heads you can easily make 500hp...with a good NOS setup you'll be as fast as you want to be.
You really can't build a NOS then a turbo motor from the same internals, NOS loves compression, boost hates it.
As a final note, forget 289 heads or any other cast iron head for that matter, to build a shortblock of any note you MUST get aftermarket aluminum heads...the old boat anchors just don't flow enough to make big hp.
I do have a great stroker 347 forged rotating assembly for sale, if you are interested PM me...
