Prepping for a turbo
Ok, with exhaust, CAI, pafc, new clutch, short shift, ect ect out of the way, I'd like to move up to a Turbo.

My question is, what internal work do I need to do to prepare for a Turbo. I've heard some say, stock internals are fine up to n psi, but after that you'll need rods/pistons, ect, ect.

I've been leaning towards the XS, as its supposed to work well with the pafc, but open to better suggestions. thumbsup

dont get XS unless you want trouble...

and to answer your question about internals, you can get everything, pistons, rods, valves, valve springs ect...

btw, do you have a PFC? WTF is a PAFC?

u can always do internals later for better result
i would wait for the stafford Turbo. better gains and performing and way more reliable

i wouldnt run any higher than about 7 psi daily with stock internals,

but you might as well do internals to put everything to work...

increase the rev limiter to 8600 RPM, get internals, TUNE everything, and you'll probably make about 300 hp.

That's good stuff, now I'm hot. Thanks for the info. thumbsup

Rev's already at 8600, but it could use a lot more tuning.
