FI per square kilometer is pretty terrible. But that FI makes us cover those kms faster.. so.. justified?

I heard that a good pnp n machineing the head plus making sure ur internals are in perfect condition would make a 7 spi turbo perfect, and it wont decrease the engines life span or reliablility.

If u want a good turbo car/ engine get the saab... I did some re search and the swiss techno geeks put alot of work in there Saab 900 engine.

Stock M52tu
I think the spec is 8 psi
The ECU was reflashed
and now running on the 94 Sunoco

the onlly thing is you could be boosted to the tits, but going over 150 is a problem. At least in Ontraio.

s52's are pretty damn strong. i'm planning on supercharging mine but nothing TOO crazy, maybe 7-9psi? i've seen/read about many guys running around 10 psi without opening the motor up. but again, it's how you drive the car.

Im thinkin of doing this too, but for now, its still at the maintenance stage.

Also how much hp do you gain with 7 psi? and do you get that crazy boost sound?

Sound

I dont know how the rest of the guys. I dont have exhaust yet.
When ideling sound like a hover,
when gaining boost pre 3k rpms like a MACK truck
when in boost post 3k rpms like figher jet.

for most part it is not the sound that gives you away. it is giant intercoller in front and if people paying attention oil coller in the grill.
However how it is sound with performance exhaust. i will let somebody else to fill in.

Wow, this thread wins for quite possibly the best collection of the worst grammar I've ever seen.
