Hello Listers

I have a Continental IO-470 VO, that I want to turbo charge. A few questions for the collective wisdom, if I may:

1. What turbo should I use? Name, number and aircraft/engine this turbo comes from?
2. What should the compression ratio be for a turbo on this engine?
3. What is the normal compression ratio for this engine?
3. What pistons shall I use to get the compression ratio ideal for a turbo? Name, number and engine, as well as, where do I get hold of such piston?
4. Looking at raising the output of the engine to around 350 hp.

Awaiting your reply with anticipation.

Kindest regards,
Erik in Oz.
