Re: 77 fleetwood 425 turbo ?
If you mean an exhaust driven, there are no kits available. Concidered doing this, however, there is little room around the exhaust manifolds to mount the turbo block.
You would have to manifacture a manifold that exited to the front of the engine compartment and then send the exhaust to the back. There just isn't a lot of room to stick a turbo under there.
