this forum has seen this over and over and over again and usually we never hear back from the person......

fast, cheap, reliable - pick two, three is impossible ....

the first thing that will go is your ring landings... like all the others

i run 1 bar daily on a fully built motor and have been doing it for nearly 80k miles. stock internals (barring an '01 - which only buys you a little more time/boost) is a time bomb with boost, especially pushing it. 7psi stock everything 12 psi with a huge headgasket is all i would go.

but theres so many cocky people that think they know better than what's already happened to 95% that have gone down that road.

go ahead, accept the challenge, it's not my money or time...

Own the dream
