Re: First post, turbo stratus questions.

Yeah for sure. I don't mind figuring stuff out on my own either. Maybe it will be easier for someone in the future to do this swap with all the info compiled in one place.

Re: First post, turbo stratus questions.

No one would happen to have any SRT4 engine bay measurements, would they? Mainly from the back side (exhaust side) of the engine to the firewall. Just trying to figure out how little room I have to play with.

Re: First post, turbo stratus questions.

I would read through UNA's build threads. You can get some ideas from his adventures.

Re: First post, turbo stratus questions.

Those are really good links. SRT omni is insane! Gives me confidence that I can make my swap work. I'm ready to tear into this thing.

Re: First post, turbo stratus questions.

Me and Jay lower our engines out the bottom, but with a cherry picker lol. UNA did it with the jack and filmed it lol. He actually makes money on it it gets hit so often Car looked great for the $400 paint job it got. This was a great low budget build.

Re: First post, turbo stratus questions.

I would try to find info on the Mexico Stratus R/T as they basically ran the SRT4 driveline. I was researching this for a while for my 06, but have opted out for lack of money.

I've dug up about as much as I can on the Mexico R/T and I know that the SRT turbofold won't clear my firewall but I don't know by how much. I was under the impression that a PT cruiser setup may work but I just can't verify. An aftermarket cast iron manifold and smaller turbo should clear but I won't know until its all mounted.

Anyone make solid mounts for the stratus? I can make my own but I'd rather not.

Also, what's the most power someone has made on a 41te? Seems like most guys swap to the old 3 speed neon transmissions for race use on an auto. I don't plan on racing, but it would be nice to talk to a few people who have. I'm aware of the inherent weaknesses in the 604 but I want to try it anyway.

Re: First post, turbo stratus questions. 318 stock

Hey, I have a 2000 dodge 1500 318, stock standard tranny 2wd. I would like to put, twin turbo into it. I would like to run up to 6-10 psi, if I could for the cheapest cost. What would I need to do? The two turbos are off a dodge 2001, 3500, diesel. Would it be a good idea to drive the truck? If not what would I do so I can? (First time using this any tips would be great)

Re: First post, turbo stratus questions.

Joe, you'd have better luck on one of the truck-specific forums out there. There are a lot of people who have turbo'd those Magnum V8s so you should be able to find help pretty easily.

Re: First post, turbo stratus questions.

Thank you very much vergo. That helped so much. I'll go look there. The best idea would be aftermarket?
