With sufficient money, you can do anything.

But, why would you bother?

The only reason to use such a large turbo is to force more air into the engine at high rpm's. Then, you need an expensive modification to the IP to get more fuel into it.
Then, you need a huge intercooler to prevent a meltdown.

It all feeds on itself. No sense doing one piece of the puzzle.

If you have to do this, then be prepared to spend $4K and you'll probably get 200 hp from a 617 after a huge amount of time and effort.

Just slapping on a huge turbo will do nothing but make your turbo lag skyrocket. You must pick a turbo based on the compressor map to match the airflow needs of your engine. Too big and your turbo will run in surge mode, quickly killing the bearings and your $$$$ turbo. too small and it will run in overspeed, overheating the air, tear up the bearings, kill the shaft oil seals, and risk the compressor exploding!

If you want to build up a powerhouse (especially on a kids budget) you MUST do some mega research before you dive in.

i am going to develop a kit

that offers a really large (fake) turbo housing that just clamps on over your actual turbo so you can lift your hood and other folks will say "damn!...look at the size of his turbo! wish i had one". i will include an electronic device that mimics the sound of a peterbuilt coming on the turbo too.

sorry, getting silly, better go back to bed.

Take that new trubo and make a jet engine out of it. There are numerous sites that tell you how to do it. I first found out about this on a site called www.jetpoweredbeercoler.com or something close to that. In the end all you have is a small jet engine that makes a lot of noise and goes nowhere but the getting there is fun.
