For off road I would rather have a 2165, 2180, 2332, 2275 with an Engle 110 cam, VZ 25, VZ 30 or FK 7, cam and single carb. That said a junk yard 1835 turbo will walk all of the afore mentioned engines. I feel using a turbo engine off road with out EFI and a a knock sensor the chance of severe engine damage due to lean running out weighs the power advantage. If you go 1835 use the thick wall cylinder kit form AA.

I like turbos, If you have money to burn they are the way i think. I like strokers too. I think for off road strokers are better. For the dunes and street i like the turbo.
I had a buddy with an auto stick and a turboed 1776 and that was the best set up I have seen yet. Seemed strange but they worked well together.
