    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...........
