Stock ones are easily hitting 12-16psi, or 250whp. whatever hits first.. and lasting.

I don't think he was saying only to run 13psi- he was saying that if the motor could make say 350whp at 22-23psi, than make 300whp at 16-18 psi and have it last forever.

Yeah I run my stock 1.6 at 13 to 14 psi all day no problem. You have a nicely built one, assumeing you have no detanation, you could run 22 psi with no worries in my opinion.

But the only way to really know the limit is to up to boost till it blows up haha.

good setup. I'm going to be running a similar setup on my 1.8. I have weisco low comps, eagle rods, 550cc injectors and standalone system. have a t25 to go on it now, tip my buddy moves out with his sr20 black top and I'm taking that turbo. not a stock t28, bought it to run 600hp on his. He doesn't know much about cars, just has a lot of money to throw at them, and can't tell me the turbo. Hopefully its a gt2871r.

Hey, also a question with the knife edged crank? Why did you chose to have this done? how much did it cost? Seems like better oil flow and what i found online makes the engine a little more rev happy. I'm currently about to take my engine to get balanced.
