#1679 Hi. I am new to car modding and would like some help from pros

Posted by dweed384 on 24 August 2020 - 02:06 PM in CarMod Support

Hi. I’m new to car modding and am planning out my choice for mods for my 1973 Plymouth Roadrunner that I am going to be buying and doing all the mods to. I am struggling to pick out a turbocharger and radiator as of right now. I might ask about more later on since I want to try to do this on my own I’m just completely stumped on what to choose for these 2. I am planning on putting a ZZ572 Deluxe Big Block Chevy motor in it with 621 horsepower. I used a calculator to get the info that I would need to choose a turbocharger and it said that I would need a minimum of a 17 PSI boost, at least 132 pounds of air per minute, and at least 1636 CFM. Is this combination even possible? Please let me know. Also, I was just planning on using the measurements for a regular sized radiator for the roadrunner. My friend and I are planning on doing a competition type car modding series on youtube kinda like HiLow from Doughnut Media but without the price differences. Pretty much we are seeing who can make the best car without breaking $100k. The car is all fixed up and everything. My goal is to get over 1200 hp for as little as possible and I just assumed that a project like this would take like $100,000. I’m just trying to get a general idea on what I would need and I thought about asking people on forums because I assumed that people in car forums would have recommendations or at least point me in the right direction of what I would need. I already have plans to fix handling like I have performance air suspension picked out, I have performance tires picked out, I have performance coilers picked out, I have performance rims picked out, and I already have a roll cage on the list.
