Re: T3 turbo on a 4.3? (2003 s10)

Most of the turbo 4.3's are going to be custom set up's even using syty manifolds and turbo. This is one of those if you have to ask you cannon afford it kind of things.
If you want to do it, research, and understand that it will not be done the right way cheap. The n/a 4.3 will handle boost if fueled and tuned properly. The more boost you run, the more expensive the project is going to become. Putting a hard number on it is impossible because of the custom work, and the zillion different ways you could go about doing it.
very true, on my 2.2 project you can do a very basic turbo running like 5 lbs of boost and its somewhat ok without intercooler, bov, and alot of the bells and whistles. but once you get 8lbs+ thats when you have to start spending alot more money. Just do research and you will find alot more info on what can be done and what cannot.
