    I just bought a stock vk with a black engine, I can't decide to turbo my 202 or get a 308 or 350 chev... Can anyone please guide me with prices and part recommendations

    Cheers

    depends what you want
    obviously a V8 is going to be much easier & cheaper to get power out of, but I've also seen some impressive numbers from turbo'd 202s

    theres some pretty good turbo 202s out there if your a fan of the good ol 202 (like me) then go the 202, otherwise just get an 8 they sound better they go better and will make alot more power cheaper.

    How's about if I was to twin turbo? Is it simply too much for the engine?

    What is your rough budget? May be able to eliminate a few options if we know that. Will it be your daily / project or a track car?

    If you wanted to go the turbo route then I would look at converting to a nissan engine ( rb25, rb26, rb30 ) all pretty cheap these days and simple to fit. The 202 black motor wont really stand up to too much boost.
