Im waiting for it to stop raining right now so I can tune it, I saw 32psi the first time it took it out, it felt like an animal. My Hoosiers where useless in 3rd. Thats when I thought the waste gate was a piece of crap, then I reolized I had my ebc set to not send any signal to the waste gate from my previous set up. Im going to tune for 15-20 we will see how it feels.

Ill post up some info soon, looks like the rain might stop this weekend. If I get the suspension finished up and my steering wheel back on I may go out for a ride and post up some data logs. Im shooting for around 320whp or so shouldn't be a problem.

Can these engines REALLY handle that much psi? I know on my volvo S70 T5, we started to blow gaskets at about 18 psi. I only run 12 psi in it.

I'm looking for closer to 375whp as 300whp is likely what I was making last year at 21psi on the 2871, and I finally have a 6spd so no more replacing trannies every weekend haha

Whose running stock motors these days anyhow?

As for a stock bottom end, there are or have been making close to 400wheel on stock bottoms, for how long is the real question.

Im nowhere near stock, my motor is completely built. I just want the turbo to make power all the way to 8k or so unlike my greddy that fell on its face anywhere after 5500 it pissed me off at the track, I only had about a 1500 rpm power band. This turbo so far seems to spool at the same time as the greddy did but hopefully wont fall on its face.
