I remember some guy here put a turbo on his V8 here and disappeared. Did he share any secrets?

Jack thanks for your answers and tips, much appreciated.

And your right I am enthusiastic about going fast just for the sake of being fast. I want badly to keep the clipper a Packard powered car and I want it to be quick, street quick not track quick. But ti be truthful I wouldn't mind having a track star.

Continued...
He did not know if the mains on the Packard would line up with the mains of the Cadillac crank so I would love to know that answer.

He said something about taking it to 4.25 x 4.25 stroked out.


I have a Cadillac 472 at home with a spun rod at home.

Well that's all for now.
I hope we can get some answers for anybody who likes going fast.
Thanks, Ronnie

I wrote notes as fast as I could will trying to process aswell so please acknowledge I might say some wrong things below but I tried hard to give you guys what he was saying....


He pondered with putting a 472/500 Cadillac crank in it. Having the rod journals taken down to 2 1/2 inch, grind off diameter of Cadillac crank 2/3 at the machine shop and having the
packard block bored to 2/3 too.

He also pondered getting the Cadillac heads to be mounted on the Packard block. Making them flow better... the Cadillac had a 4.3 stroke.

Using undersize Chevy bearings for extra stroke.
