Won't you risk of blowing the motor with 10-12psi??

Our stock internals can hold up to 300hp as long as the compression ratio is changed, the car will be fine. Definitely not a daily driver though

350-375 is more the range after that playing with fire..

As long as compression ratio is changed?? Huh?

They can be daily driven without any problems people do it all the time...

How the hell are you going to change the compression ratio?

I've seen v6s shattered which were producing 265hp.

Slapping on a single turbo to a car with 150hp to the crank isn't going to double its output. You'll have to add a lot of things to get to 370 like you're talking about (tune, exhaust, heads, intake, cai, throttle body)

None of which would affect the compression ratio. To get 370hp out of the v6 in question you would need forged internals and some pretty serious boost.

That's what I'm saying, I'm only talking about him putting on a single turbo and not going over 300rwhp. He'd be at 230 at the most which our car can handle with stock internals. But with the added forced induction, there will be too much pressure throughout the engine and you could blow a head gasket real easy. That's why I say with lower compression, his car will last longer.

He has a 2000 splitport model... He makes over 150 to the ground already lol

I've seen a procharger on 11psi pulley make over 300 to the wheels with just exhaust work.. Turbos make more power per lb of boost because they are very efficient, 14ish could net him 350 on a stock motor with just a procharger

^stock automatic on 7.2psi single turbo.

1)There are several 350+ HP v6 mustangs without forged internals
2)A Tune seems to be a given when adding any sort of forced induction, however why you would attempt to add a "CAI" to a turbo setup is beyond me, and throttle body isn't needed either.

To change the compression ratio you need to rebuild the engine and at that point you might as well go with forged internals cause your already ripping the block apart

+1 on TMA

Cobra injectors from a termi, they are called 39/42lbs (termis are 03-04 cobras)

You need the I hectors to pump in enough fuel to keep up with amount of air going in, it won't waste gas if its tuned right

Stock 19/21 depending on year of car, in your 2000 it's 19's

Or you misunderstood what he was talking about. He's saying the temptation to get on the throttle more because of the turbo is gonna cause him to use more gas than normal.

Any more bickering and the thread will be closed. All OP needs is an answer which it sounds like he got.

If we are going to speak, lets at least use terms so everybody is sure whats being talked about.

99.5% of the time somebody mentions compression ratio they are talking about static compression ratio, and not effective compression ratio.
