Default K27 suitability


I want to put together a budget blow throught carb set up on a mild 302windsor. It currently gives approximately 260 bhp on a 9 to 1 CR normally aspirated and I'm hoping for around 390-400 HP off 7-10 psi. I was thinking of using a cheap chinese T3/T4 Hybrid but I am able to get hold of a brand new KKK K27 (I dont know any more details than that) for reasonable cost (around $400) and am wondering if anyone has any experience of using these turbos in a home brew set up and if you think it would be big enough, I figure that with it being quite small for a V8 it should spool quite quickly. Any input would be gratefully appreciated. I know they arent big power numbers but its going in a car that only weighs around 2200lb so it should still be fun and street friendly.

The K27 is the OEM turbo off a Porsche 911. It looks like it should actually be decent here.
