if you run at 6-7 psi your internals will hold up, any higher than that i would look into valves, pistons and connecting rods.

also, look into the apex-i power FC thumbsup

give us details on the Turbo and then it could be a lot easier to help you because i think some Turbos require mods and some wont, so...just let us have some info and im sure someone on EC will be able to give you more details on that thumbsup

rofl you do know just cause the Turbo itself is only a couple hundred you'll need a whole kit fabricated around it wink you wont find a full Turbo kit including piping, management, IC for a few hundred $$.

I suggest you go to www.staffordfabrication.com and look at their setup. then compare it to this too good to be true (which it prolly isnt true) deal of yours smile

good luck anyways! and I really hope you have someone who knows what they are doing install it.

I assume that someone is going to make this modern marvel for him, and he is going to be stupid enough to put it on his car.

Bravo.

even if it is just the turbine, a couple hundred sounds a little low to me...quality isnt cheap
