speedemon is on a distinguished road

ok with turbos or any forced induction tuning tuning tuning and then tune again lol
most any engine respones well to boost if it is set up right
first off do you want low (less than 8psi)or high boost (10+psi)
low boost you can have high compression ratios like 9:1 10:1 like that
but for high boost you need to stay under 8.5:1
now ask yourself what your going to do with the boost tow race or drive it like a grandma fuel mileage?
then remember a garrett t28 .60/ar turbo runs around $1200 new
FI is pricy so make sure you think everything through before you start anything
just so you don't think in full of it i have a 400whp turbo charged nissan 240
so i know how things are and i found out the hard way lol
hope this helps
