Default 1995 f150 turbocharger?

I would like to turbocharge my 95 ford pickup for some added speed. My truck is the v8 5.8l 351. I can spend a good amount I cash on something so all suggestions are welcome. Thanks.

I'm sure there are turbo headers out there for the 351 I know there are for the 302.

You shouldn't need a new computer. Unless your going over 5-6psi then you want a computer for boosted motors. Also if you go over 8psi I'd invest in a water-methanol injection system.

Same here and the ob1 computer can handle up to 6-8 psi without having problems. Timing won't be affected but you might want to bump it a bit.

I read somewhere that for every pound of boost you are supposed to advance the timing 1
