    Hi all , me and my friend are thinking of turbocharging an other m50 b25. This time for real power and lot of boost
    We are thinking of stock crank and rods, forged pistons (8.5:1 cr), mls gasket , all arp bolts etc, and stand alone ecu ofcorse. But not sure on witch turbo ?? Turbonetcs, holset, garret . Any help please.

    #1. What power do you want

    #2. If you get pistons, get rods

    #3. If you get lower compression pistons you donŽt need a MLS gasket

    Do you favour a type of turbo? If you post your goals IŽll be able to reccomend a turbo to suit.

    Also state the type of turbo manifold youŽll be using.

    Our goals are at around 500 bhp knowing that the m50 nv have a strong block. I don't have any turbo brand so will go for the best ! The turbo manifold will be custom built ( 6 to 1 )

    You donŽt need anything but ARP and MLS for 500hp.

    for 500hp with a 6-1 IŽd still recommend a HX40 .
    Same setup as IŽll be doing, only IŽm going to make a split pulse manifold.

    Yes that trough but if I live in UK !!. Here in Malta we have high temperatures, lot of humidity and the most the worst fuel that exist in the whole world .
    My previous project was stroking an m50 nv to 3 liter , turbo (t04e) ,inter cooler, stand alone ecu and water/methanol injection . The best results that we got out of it was just 400bhp (on dyno ) with 8-10 psi boost and 9:1 cr. More boost or timing and it starts pinking . On the other hand I cant run on racing fuel for every day use !!

    You need methanol injection for anything above that boost then and things will be just fine.

    That way you can run upto 400hp on normal fuel and add on the meth for anything above that.
