    Yea... i want high revs but im prepared to make an exception. Ill get back to u on your question JT after the car is properly running with the turbo. Knowing that my turbo is too big for wat i am doing right now i will grow into it one way or another so ill let u know how i decide to do that once the car is boosting... im not looking back im moving forward with turboing a stock v6 with a 1.10 ar lol i really just want to see how laggy it really will be... this went from a build to a science experiment as soon as i clicked order on the full race website haha its ok wats the worst that happens... i buy a smaller turbo! Im not going to be upset ..not even a little ..i know wat i got myself into wen i clicked 1.10 more or less lol so im prepared to see this through and relate the numbers here and we will take it from there.. how does that sound? Are we all on the same page ... i donno hp but right now 8 ibs is the starting boost pressure in my mind being as that i do have oil in my coolant...

    I see what u mean now ur right i dont really need incar fuel pressure... i will use the guage for oil pressure i guess instead...

    You can easily buy another housing if the 1.10 ar is to laggy. A .91 would gain roughly 200-300rpm quicker spool. Only down side is the stock rods cant handle a lot of boost/cylinder pressure. Best way to tune a turbo car for quick spool is give it timing. If your stock rods can handle it you could try 28* up to 1.0 engine load.

    You have to take it all the way down to put rods in it as you will need custom pistons. Best to buy a good core/block and build it.

    Ohh i was under the impression u could just pull the head and drop the beefier rods in and call it a day lol im not surprised i knew it was to good to be true..

    Yea even if i did it that way i was thinking i could prolli end up blowing a gasket or spinning a bearing ..i will fully build it but i cant even talk about this right now i get to much anxiety :taylor: i need to focus on wats important right now lol.. building this turbo kit...
