    Hi everyone! Haven't been on here for awhile, been busy with work. (I do auto upholstery repair so if any advice needed please PM) Anyways, since Winter time is come it seems to be time to start adding the power. I want to boost it eventually. Preferably turbo over super, though the block does have just under 110k which I do not want to get rid of during the build. So to add a turbo what mods should I add to the 302? I don't want to replace everything if I don't have to. A list of mods that are necessary and the best bang for your buck and a list of what can be salvaged from the oem parts. I would greatly appreciated responses, thanks!

    Avoid the generic ebay kits. the ONLY ones you should consider from ebay are the On3 kit, and the CX racing kit. although the intercoolers in both are pathetic.

    My Chinese turbo works perfectly fine.
