Can I purchase a turbocharger for my Farmall C Tractor, and where might that be? Thank you.

Lets see, 19HP from a 5.3 to 1 compression 113cu" , 1550rpm four banger. Is there three or five main bearings? Even if all built to the hilt with 100HP and $30,000 invested. What class are you going to pull in ? It's going to need main cap saddles, studs on the mains and head. O''ringed head. Forged pistons, custom billet rods. Sequential port fuel injection. Intercooling and E85 fuel. For a 10-12HP increase a simple draw through carb setup and 7psi boost may work. Will also need a re-ground cam and heavier valve springs for more rpms.

Carburetor is upstream of the turbo. Simplifies the installation but limits HP due to wet airflow. Can't intercool with a draw through. One backfire will shred the intercooler. Don't expect to make any more power after huge bucks. Than a M with the sleeves pulled, high compression pistons and a cam.

If you want to turbo an antique tractor be ready to spend the money. I have had nothing but headaches with my 560 that I turbocharged. I don't care what they say, stock engines will not hold up very well at least for the 6 cylinders. Granted, it makes some serious horsepower, but I was told I could run 25 psi boost and all I could ever get was just barely 11 psi. Had issues with the turbo since day one and took it in to 2 different diesel shops and they both said the turbo was junk when I got it. They believed that has been my problem with head gaskets. Like I say, they make good power but you will need to start with AT LEAST a fresh engine before ya go peaking out the horsepower potential.
