Dave, I turbocharged a 95 F3. It was for a Formula SAE car. We used an model 93A Aerodyne turbo, MoTeC M4 Pro sequential fuel management system. Our rules called for a restictor in the intake (ala NasCar) to keep HP down, with the restrictor we made 98hp at the countershaft. With it unrestricted, a 8lb spring in the Aerocharger, 116 octane VP we made 153@11750. ( the clutch set-up we had wouldn't hold anymore boost). I can be more specific, let me know...........
