i wanna turbo my car...if i set it at a low boost say about 5-6 psi...or maybe even 4.. will my engine be dependable?..i also have a altima that i use as a daily driver...
And when something goes wrong with a ZPI kit and toasts your engine, how much does ZPI give you to get it repaired?Originally posted by JDangle@Feb 6 2006, 12:40 PM
^^^^ if you run 6 psi you WILL be safe. i run 8-12 depending on the driving situation. and the only real reason i built my motor is so it can handle the 12PSI, if i was going to stay at 8 then i wouldnt have worried about it. jsut think to yourself: you already have another daily driver, so you shouldnt have any down time. at 6 psi with a turbo you can run about 247WHP, with 7 PSI that the TRD S/C uses you only put down 195WHP. 50+HP off 1 PSI cause the turbo doesnt use power to make power. its all free. dont buy into the crap some people will give that a S/C is soooooooo much safer. when it actually puts more strain on the motor. i have been doing this for 8 yrs, so i think i kinda know what im doing. not to mention i have 20K+ miles on my turbo set up with NO problem whatsoever. also you can get a ZPI kit for $2850, or the TRD S/C for $4000. you do the math
