before you cop a barrage of abuse ...

did you even use the search function?????

i did even before i started mine and the hard questions i then asked about..

dont need forgies n that s**t unless ure planning on running big numbers..
stock bottom ends in good cond can handle upto 15psi safely - depending on tune IIRC..

im running 10psi and my motors in mint cond..

you need dollars, and plenty of them. mine ended up at about $8000 -9000 all up ..do s**t yourself and you can save more dollars...

some of the other more experienced turbo boys on here can let you know more..


i forgot to add--- IF YOU BUY CHEAP s**t PARTS THEN THATS WHAT YOU'LL END UP WITH as your sitting on the side of the road with smoke pouring out from everywhere..

stock internals will handle 20psi/400rwkw with good tune.

but stock compression wont allow u to run much more than 15-18psi. after that u will start to go backwards because ignition advance will be to low.
