    If one were to want to add a turbo system to an engine, what has to happen besides purchasing the parts necessary? Can turbo be added to any engine?

    Can it be added to any engine? Yes. But you have to add the supporting mods to make it work properly.

    Take a carborated engine for example. If you are running 7psi fo fuel pressure, and you are pushing 7psi of boost, then you will get NO fuel flow and you will starve the engine. So you have to raise the fuel pressure as the boost comes up with a boost controller.

    If you are running EFI, then you need to tune it for the boost so that you don't lean the engine out.

    What are you planning on adding a turbo to?

    Another late reply... I really was just curious about it. It came to mind whilst pondering how to get more power out of my 3.7L engine. I'll not be modifying it or anything. It already gets bad fuel economy.

    Actually adding a turbo can net you better mpg IF you can keep your foot out of it. Makes it easier if you don't put one of these pop off valves on it hahahahaha.
