Default A little help please

Doing a turbo setup on a 1.6. Running a sr20 turbo and ms3 with a stock engine jaguar rebuilt. I'm planning in running e85 an I'm wondering what would be a safe boost pressure goal as well as some injector size recommendations.

Exactly 17.304 pounds of boost on a stock engine.

Not really, I have no idea how much boost your engine can take.
However I do know that people with more knowledge and experience then I will say what matters is the amount of horsepower your setup makes as different setups will make different amounts of power and stress your engine differently on the same amount of boost. So the question you really want to ask is how much horsepower your engine can take. Most people say 225 I think.
