i've actually kept up on most of your stuff and you helped me learn a ton about turbocharging a ve.

the .86 housing was what i wanted an keo wasn't sure which one it was, im glad it turned out to be the one i wanted so that should help with the back pressure along with external gate, 3" dp, 3" exhaust and 3" test pipe.. i know with turbos back pressure can be a problem esp with the ve's so if i was going to do this i wanted the least amount possible without breaking the bank.

my goal is 300whp on low boost

Exactly!!! the trans broke because i was abusive because i was getting pissed off at bein fucking slow. sure.. there was a few things holding me back that night like humidity and needing a tune up an whatever.. it really was bothering me i was so far from before when i was netting 14.2's an 14.0's all night..

that right there was the straw that broke the camels back.. i can launch hella easy an pull a way better time with a turbo then i could n/a launching as hard as i could. not to mention im actually saving alot of money vs staying n/a an going all out high comp.

even if i melt my pistons i'll just get some used det pistons, new rings, bearings and be on my marry way

I cannot fathom the logic being applied to lead you to your decision. You thought you had a problem with your N/A car, so that problem is now ignored or forgotten about and to attain your goal of "moar fast" you are going to put a turbo on it.

It is your goal, your car, your money, your life and I try to understand why people do what they do, but I just cannot!

Either way, good luck! I don't wish anything bad happens, that is for sure. Our cars that are not being driven are just a waste of space.

the way i look at it is like this.. as it sits the cars a 14.0 on its best day.. a tune up and retune may have yielded slightly better.. if i went high comp, 4-1 header and custom intake manifold i could possibly bring the car into the mid 13's maybe low 13's, by the time all is said an done thats a pretty penny to spend to take half a second or so off your 1/4 mile time.. and of course all this is launching as hard as i can and bein very hard on the drivetrain

the route im going i should be able to get mid to high 12's and barely break a sweat.. ya ok the engine has a shit ton more power an that is harder on the transmission.. but im going to be nice to it until i can get my hands on a p11 or b15 trans..

and again, believe it or not.. im spending less to go turbo.. i really would Love a 2.3 ve like cory had.. but its just not in the cards.
