Not sure exactly how big that turbo is, but with your mods there is probably no way you could ever spool it

you would need a lot more fuel to spin that big of a turbo. And even then you'd have other issues

I was thinking it was a 4LEK? Maybe an HX60ish? You would need aftermarked injectors to really make it work for you.

"01" red with red tint, I'd say not quite stock

If it was a 60 it'd be an ht60 which is a modern version of the ht3 but I'm pretty sure they weren't around until the n-14's.

Doesn't matter either way, its alot too big for a single on a VP truck.

It has been quite a few years since I have looked under the hood with a BC400 but as I recall it is a pretty big turbo as others have said. Not only that the BC engines are 855 CID so that should tell ya something.

^^^ Exactly. Put it under your stock turbo, makes a good set of twins. You will still need more fuel to get the full use out of them though.

dude if you run an old charger off some blown up pete your asking for trouble in your pick up, one thing I have learned is if it looks cool and kinda seems like a good idea becuase a buddy suggested it, dont do it!. Like the guys above said with your mods you are no where close to having enough fuel to spool and even if you did you wouldnt like it around the street and it would run like garbage. The charger on there would be similiar to a K1 turbo, I have an old 85 359 pete with a big cam 4 in it as well and I wouldnt attempt to run that charger.

Idk if it's in questionable shape then have it rebuilt get some bigger injectors, 150's-200's and run it under your stock turbo for a nice compound setup like others have already said.
