Yeah that is a good idea, but 2-3 psi boost wouldn't hurt and you would feel the difference quite alot.

On what premise can you be sure it won't hurt?

....

Yeah man, lets just run more boost, which will give you more power for nothing.... :/

More boost = more heat, more wear.

You really need to take some precautions before just upping the boost, and make sure when you do to have run on a dyno to make sure you are not leaning out.

Pretty much been said.. need a decent intake setup being it a brand name pod filter or a known to work Cold Air Intake... a decent sized exhaust system a 3" possibly... a decent service from brand name plugs and leads and a 1 > 3 Psi boost increase after previous things have been done.

a mate of mine had a tx5 turbo and any boost over 9 psi would cause the ecu to freak out and from 6psi to 9 psi made bugger all difference on the stock engine..

if he is running 2/3 psi boost he has a hose leak check that i use to own a 1985 tx5 turbo and they push out 7 psi stock i would be checking vacum hose before turning the boost up and not to mention these little ihi turbo cant handle more then 10 psi with out a intercooler even then i wouldent recamond going past 12psi

bty you cant stick a pod in these little beast because where are you going to put it because these have monster air filters in them as the afm is on the bottem of the round container for the air filter
