Why would you say that? have you tried or it is just your assumptions?

I could be wrong, true there are those (jp for one) who have turbo'd the stock VE bottom end with great results both with power and reliability. Two things I've seen in common on their builds 1) they are either running high octane race gas and/or are using water/methanol injection and 2) they have some type of tubular header coupled with a turbine housing and down pipe option designed to reduce back pressure to a minimum.

I have yet to see someone using a stock DET or even GTiR cast manifold, VE pistons & rods and pump gas only on a 10 + psi set up. If you know of someone with such a build, I'd really like to know and get the name of their tuning shop!
