I just want to run a 75 shot. Is that too much for a 2000 gts engine to handle? Besides the spark plugs, what else do i have to do to rebuild the engine? How much will it cost?
hey man. with the stock compression on the GTS being somewhere in the neighboor Hood
of 10.5 or something. my mechanic figured it would be too high for me to jsut dump 100 shot of boost on it. so made a few calls, did some research i found a machine shop to custom machine me forged internals, from pistons, connecting arms, etc. i run a higher compression but sturdier engine soit can take the abuse of the sudden surge of power. to answer you question of what else to do on ur engine, 75 shot is reasonable, but if you wanna keep ur car running, and the engine safe, i'd suggest bring the stock compression down to about 9 or 9.5, that can be done with lower compression piston heads, and if you have cash get better connecting arms too. but i have seen ppl do fine with just lowering the compression ratio by switchin piston heads. as for cost i honestly do not know what to tell you. i went through custom machining so that cost a lot more. lol a good job doesnt hurt. but research making a few phone calls wouldnt hurt.
