Bbc 454

What size turbo would i want for a 454 BBC and what would the optimal compression be before turboing?

and what would the optimal compression be before turboing? Im building a 454 but i am fairly new to this and am only a short way into becoming a gear-head. I do not know what heads ocam etc i would be using, im still in the process of planning what ill want or need. thx

you can run a turbo with about any compression ratio.if you get the compression up around 10.5 to 11 and a small boost with the torque of the big block it will fly.just remember big blocks don't like high rpms unless there built for it.5500-6000 is about all I would push a stock bottom end.
