I’m in the process of designing and building a bolt on big block Mopar turbo kit for B/E body Mopars. We’ll post photo’s and updates right here as we go. Feel free to leave a comment below, ask questions, offer advice, tips or suggestions.
The big block Mopar turbo kit will come with turbo headers, T6 flange, intercooler and pipework. This will be a single turbo setup. You will need to add your own turbo, as not all turbos and engine combinations are the same. There will be provisions to add your own waste gate and pressure relief valve on the cold intake side, as well as provisions on the turbo manifold to add oxygen sensors, if you want to run EFI.
We’ll discuss why I’ve left this option open for you to decide as we go along.
The test mule is my own 1968 Dodge Coronet, with a 440, Edelbrock heads, Purpleshaft cam, M1 intake, stock bottom end, Mopar ignition with a carburettor.
An air to air intercooler will be easily installed between the radiator support and the grille. It will fit between the radiator support and grille bracket, which also houses the hood latch. There will be no need to remove either and the intercooler will not block the radiator entirely, ensuring fresh air can still pass through the radiator.
At the moment I’m looking to make an intercooler as part of the package. I have the design already, now I’m in the process of sourcing intercooler cores and end tanks within New Zealand. My research shows the traditional full front mount isn’t necessary and restricts air flow to the radiator, which can lead to overheating the engine.
More photos and info to come. In the meantime be sure to check out the Mopar 440 turbo kit vs supercharger article and video, along with different big block Mopar turbo kit setups that readers have sent in.
