New to the forum. I have a 1973 Opel Manta project car. The build likely wont start until later this year (too many other irons in the fire). I remember reading an article many years ago in Car & Driver titled "An Opel Under Pressure", which outlined adding turbo to a stock Opel 1.9L engine. I've wanted to try it ever since.
So, I'm just here to start to get smarter on how all this works.

Yep, thanks, that's a good read. I had read it earlier, and it's what made me think that this is the right place for me to find information, opinions, ideas. I have no false ideas that it is an easy thing, I just always liked the idea. Like I said, I won't likely start the project for a while, so I've got time to plan.

The admin here would like to extend a sincere welcome to everyone new to TorqueCars. I apologise for the delay in responding; I've had a really busy period recently, but I believe I've caught up now.

I'm certain you'll fit right in, and I'm looking forward to talking cars with you.

I enjoy the idea of this initiative, and I'm a big fan of automotive variety in whatever form it takes from cars to project ideas.
