Little bit about the car and my plans to turbocharge it.This car was a true stripper car came rubber floor mats, radio delete, drivers only sunvisor &armrest only, no outside trim no emblems only one that says studebaker drivers fender, poverty hubcaps on factory 15 inch wheels, car weighs 2600 lbs.The car came with 289 that ran but smoked little from what I have read could just be valve guides are wore.The 28o came from factory with steel crank, forge rods, forged rocker arm, high nickle block pretty stout for factory motor.Ok heres my question this is going to be a buget build I will by new parts when I can but also I want to see if I can build this system with used parts ie tubos maybe jy turbos Im not sure I just want to do it myself.I plan on making my own headers I can buy the flanges and tubing from a place called hellsgate fabrication they also sell turbo flanges.I will need help were to put wastegates and blow of valves please be patience Im just learning here are pictures of rango yes I named him lol

    Cool project. A pair of SVO or turbocoupe turbos would work good on a 289.
