Hey everyone.

Just new to modifying my old 60s with 250000kms. I have heard conflicting advice about putting a turbo on it. What information or experience do people have that i could take on board.

Beyond this what can i do to maximise my power and get it running its best before i consider a turbo. Can the old cars be dyno tuned perhaps?


Cheers guys

Hi Dan and welcome.
In the past I have had a multitude of 60's, five of which had after market turbo kits with or without an intercooler. In my opinion there is everything to be gained from a turbo conversion and nothing lost.
It transforms the 60 series, it will go up any hill in top gear and keep up with modern traffic like a modern truck. At your mileage it wont hurt it at all, the engine is very robust and lowly stressed. When fitted the maximum fuel control can be adjusted to suit and 130-140 BHP can be expected.

Thank mate.

That sounds promising. Is there anything that I would want to look at or do maintainance on that would improve my chances to avoid damage? And is there any turbo specs that i would want to look for or stear clear from perhaps any models that work well

Hi Dan,
I dont know the situation regarding the availability of new/ s/h kits where you are. If new are available, and your budget ran to it I'd have new. If they aren't available then a s/h kit is your option but I'd have the turbo overhauled at a specialist before fitting.
I've sold a few of these kits to other forum members and they've been pleased with the results. If you get a kit with an intercooler then even better.
Keep us informed.

I doubt you'd see any damage, I hav'nt
