Talking turbo motor build help

OK I was going to put a turbo on the motor I have in my car now 2.0 Dura. But it is my only car right now and Im workin 2 jobs. So I have decided to build up a used motor into a 350hp turbo motor. And swap it in when its done. What motor should I start with and what internals should I use also comp ratio on pistons, cams etc........... Any and all help will be gratefully accepted.


And if your worried if i can drive with the power My last vehicle was a 02 chevy silverado super charged with 500hp


Thanks

I would use the 2.0 Zetec only because there are a lot more parts out there for it. The build will not be so complicated either. I would go with 9:1 Compression, Forged Pistons, Crower Rods, Crower FI Cams, FR Cylinder Head and FR Intake mani w/ 70mm TB.

With the right set up to compliment the engine such as a good turbo and 3" exhaust, you should be able to make 350 hp. The only problem you may come across at the HP level is fuel. It would benefit you to get a fuel cell.

i would use the 2.3 dura the flow is better on the motor..i would go with 9.0 to 1 compression. Personally i would get some supertech pistions and some crowler rods...of course eagles would do the job too..ive just used crowler in the past in another car and i like it even for the price. Then i would get some billet mains, and arp hardware..port and polish the head..larger valves, etc. This is what i would do.
