      Ok just bought a 94 Rado and so far in love with it but it's toooooooo slowwww so I've came down to obviously makin the 12V turboed sounds logical to me, now I've came across a 3.2 stroker kit that seems like a fun little project within a project. So my question is has anyone done the stroker kit from eurospecsport.com with a garrett gt3582r? Oh and what's a good place for drivetrain upgrades? Any suggestions will help since I'm looking to do this during the winter and hopefully have it running by end of next summer

      84mm bore is too big to be running turbo on unless you kept it very cool and low boost. Your best just to leave it stock and boost 20 pounds which is plenty enough for having some fun.

      There just isnt any need for boring these engines out and turboing unless your trying for some records. Weve all seen many stock bottom ends putting out 400whp . This is all good news as those stroker kits are some big money thats better spent on a nice turbo setup.
