i am looking at using a full ba xr6 turbo kit that i have got for next to nothing and was wondereing if any one knew how much power will be lost or gained and roughly what the power out put would be as i DO NOT plan on putting in a decomp plate as the compressions to a turbo are 8.7:1 and a na tuned is 9.7:1 and i am aware of the risk of this but i belive i have more to gain as the compressions have near no diffrence and i am not going to kill the engine with a standard 6 PSI boost the kit i have is all the bolt on stuff i have everything except a turbo motor if any one knows the gain or loss that would be great :)

well there wont be a loss in power if thats what your talking about, you realise you may aswell sell your car, save some money and buy an xr6 turbo as its less f**k around and probably cheaper, ba xr6 turbos go on evilbay cheaper than it will be to fit a kit to your car, tune it, engineer it, then at the end of the day the motor wont be as reliable as a turbo one because of the raised compression and i think the rods are different between the n/a and the turbo

you will gain aprox 60-80% power increase from n/a.
you will be supprised how much boost a n/a engine can handle providing its tuned well, im running 12psi into a std n/a au engine which has 9.6:1 comp, im getting around the same power as a tuned ba/bf turbo at the same boost level..

no need to change the ecu as you can flash tune the standard one anyway?

250rwks is the area you will be in at a moderate boost, some make more, some make less..

you can get away with the std ecu and have it flashed, although you may need to swap the tmap sensor over to a xr6t one..
