Hey Kev
 
http://motors.shop.ebay.com/i.html?LH_Auction=1&_trkparms=65%253A1%257C39%253A1&rt=nc&_nkw=1962+Chrysler&_ipg=&_sticky=1&_trksid=p4506.c0.m245&_sop=10&_sc=1
 
Pick one.  There's 2 pages.  The bottom of the first page has several.  My search was for 62 Chrysler.  Eliminated the buy-it-now, and went to newly listed
 
I offered that guy $200 for that turbo

You can use the one on CL. The turbine isn't too big. It might be a little slow to come up as a remote mount. If it does, swap the turbine housing with something smaller.
You can play mix-n-match with turbos all day long if it stays in the same turbo family.

As for the Godspeed stuff on eBag? I'm kinda leery about those. I get the feeling they're the Chinese knock-offs. Quality is a crap shoot. They're cheap. Maybe a little too cheap.

Thanks Boss.
 
Feets,
 
Thanks for the info I was wondering if a complete stand alone system could work, that's answered.   What I don't understand is where to pull oil from if I use the vehicles oil system?  Also where's the best place to return oil to?  When I did the knock off t-bird turbo coupe back in 95 I dropped in to the pan just below the rail.  To me it always seemed a bit simplistic.

Heat does help drive the turbo. Once you move the turbo away from the engine you need to drop down on the turbine housing to increase the velocity of the exhaust through the turbine.

As for the oil, I run a 440. It has two ports oil pressure ports at the rear of the engine. The oil sending unit screws into one of them. I put a T fitting into the port and ran lines to the turbos.
My turbos were high enough to drain back into the pan. I punched through the side of the pan's sump with a bulkhead fitting and ran driver's side drain to it. Due to exhaust routing, the passenger side was different. I welded a 1/2 tube poking out of the front corner of the pan at a slightly upward angle. A simple 1/2" press on hose was clamped between it and the turbo outlet.
Be sure the return is above the oil level in the pan.

They're a crap shoot, I know.
 
Some of that chinese stuff is pretty good, and I would prefer a US made.  But they fill a budget nitch since I have to buy 2 of them.
 
I still have a pricey install to deal with
