Default Re: Upgraded Turbo on Stock Internals

Instead of thinking about how to make the car faster via larger turbo, why not work on your driving (you're not Micheal Schumacher, no matter how much you play GT5 or whatever) and how the car handles? You won't have to worry about the engine blowing unless you're a horrible driver. There is a huge difference between a fast car and a fast driver.

I know of one tuner who ran a stock motor and had it hold up. Stock bottom end is garbage.

IDK about others, but to me it sounds kind of like rice crispies lol, kind of a crackling pinging sound from the engine, I had a friend who mistook it for a loose heatshield on the exhauast and boom, holes in pistons lol. If your getting audible knock on stock bottom end, its pretty much done already.

My car has been down for the last 7 months while I've been building a block which is about ready to go in to the car.

In my personal opinion, I wouldn't expect a stock block to last very long on an upgraded turbo... Mine probably only lasted about 5-6K miles after adding E85 on the stock turbo.

EDIT: Please don't listen to fuji production, he obviously doesn't have enough personal experience (his OWN car, his OWN work) to be making such statements about the reliability of the stock block.
24psi on stock turbo? Jesus tap-dancing christ.

If your getting detonation and you can hear it, your probably screwed already. If you know any mechanics who have a.......cant remember the name lol, but its a camera scope that you can use to see inside your cylinders. If your knocking, you will probably have little divets on the pistons.
