Thanks.
Just realized that i first said hello back in march.
Anyhow i have a 58 Chrysler 392 that i would like to boost, but dont know if this is in the realm of reality with its two bolt main, and (9.5 :1 ) compression.
Maybe it would make more sense to sell this motor off, and build a LS1?

Make sense? Maybe not. Be seriously awesome? Definitely. You can always lower compression, and boost isn't as abusive on the bottom end as RPM. I've got a boosted slant six project myself. If you're up for the fabrication, I vote go for it with the 392.
