    you will have no problem running 8-9 pounds of boost, but 10+, you should do some internals to make the motor last

    what would i have to do internaly to run 10psi
    • Nov 11, 2010 4:17:27 pm
    pistons, and headwork, like valvesprings bigger valves and would also recommend cams for smoother boosting and acceleration

    yes you can boost a bone stock motor and safely run around 10psi of boost with no issues. i've had my car boosted since summer of 2006 and i've put almost 40,000 miles on the car with the turbo on it. everything still works great and i haven't been easy on it.

    everytime i drive the car it gets the tires blown off at least once or twice and i've made tons of dragstrip runs on it in the past. just get a good tune on it and it will be fine.

    I'm not sayin you can't run stock on 10 pounds of boost, but most people I talk to that build boosted motors say it's better to do those upgrades so you don't pop something internally.

    Oh yeah I wasn't disagreeing with you or anything. If I could afford to I'd be putting rods and pistons in my car just so I could run more boost. I was just saying that it is possible to run that boost level and using my car as an example. Wasn't trying to say anyone was wrong or anything. Lol

    I've got the Greddy kit from when it first came out.

    • Nov 12, 2010 7:24:53 pm
    from the millions of other threads like yours that you would find if you looked under the FORCED INDUCTION SECTION.

    here is your answer:

    you can.

    could something go wrong? of course, engines are not perfect. There have been stories of people blowing something and then there have been plenty of people who have lived happily ever after for a while until something had to be replace.

    Bottom line: learn to read. learn to search. and pray your actually smart enough to actually look into this.
