Hi 55superbeetle
I do swap engine on my Volvo 240. Engine LQ9 (6.0 L), Wiseco pistons, CR 8.8-8.9, std 317 heads, may be std cam or LS6 cam, HD springs, ARP all spuds, Compstar rods, 4l80e, std intake, may be LS intake. And some boost...

Goal 600-700 HP for street and anytime drag.

I got the opportunity to buy at a good price new turbine Borg Warner S475 T6 1.32 AR (75 comp wheel, 88mm turbo). Оn what RPMs would appear positive boost, and on what a full boost 14psi?
whether the turbine is suitable for my purposes?
Who knows its approximate weight?

I also wanted to ask about the torque converter. I have a new standard torque converter with stall speed of 2200 rpm. Enough for me? If not, what Stall speed is preferable? Or do I need to order a torque converter with a higher stall speed? In general, to what power can use with a standard torque converter and transmission 4l80e? I have a transmission from the Chevrolet Express 3500 2001 model year.

I really wouldn't bother taking the motor apart for that power goal but being overbuilt never hurts. I'm not sure how long the stock converter will last but it will most likely suck with that turbo. Stall speed is going to change with many things and the converter will affect spool time too. Don't get caught up in stall speed, turbo converters are kind of magic, the best money you will spend will be on a custom converter built for your setup.

What is the Octane rating for the gasoline you have available? If it is the same as in Germany then 8.9 CR is too low and will make the engine lazy.

Thanks for the advice. Then I will order a converter for my purposes.
Advise, in what firm is better to turn to the United States.

The octane number us both in the Europe, but the fuel quality is not always good. Everything else, where I live, there is only 95 petrol for sale. To buy a 98 have to travel to a nearby town.

The pistons and connecting rods I've already bought. If there is a need to increase the compression ratio, I can try to use other gaskets or sgrind heads.


What you think about Borg Warner S475 T6 1.32 AR for this config?

Putting together a 5.3 turbo first gen rx7 for my father in law. My step daughter is also about to get her drivers license so we got a turbo wagon and lifted it on all terrains, seemed like a good idea at the time.

Thanks guys, really just trying to broaden my skill set to build the coolest 142 in the world lol. All the money I've earned form this build has gone into buying parts for the 142, hopefully next year will be my year to have my own cool car again.

6.0 with twin s366's. Reaaaaalllllly want to have AC in the car too, planning on rear mount radiator, but that could all be a pipe dream once I start mocking everything up. Probably going to move the firewall back some to make room. Lot's of dreaming that might not become reality.....but number one goal is to be able to drive it anywhere i want and run 8.50's, we'll see.....

Im thinking about a LS swap in my 142 too. Are you going to use the stock front suspension?
Built a 142 with an old 350 many years ago and the front suspension with steering box and frame rails suck big time
