well your not going to turbo an engine that has no defense for knock, would you? these engines do not have a circuit(that i can find) that will retard timing in the event of knock. the factory ecm(or junk superchips types of tuners) has no way of adjusting the fuel and timing tables with boost present. and a FMU is a bandaid that barely works. your best approach would be to build your own big single turbo set up and run a megasquirt ECU. maybe standalone tranny controller as well. you'd have to remove one of the plugs from the block and install a knock sensor.
