Re: Turbo blue

I'm assuming Blue is the name of your car? not bashing you at all when I say this but separating sentences will lead to a more hasty reply.

As for your question the stock 4.6 bottom end by rule of thumb is good up to about 400rwhp(although the cast crank should be good up to a little over 600rwhp, the cast rods are the weak part). Some run much more without many problems, some run less without problems. Just depends on how many times you want to roll the dice.


However, a turbo if tuned correctly and kept up with is typically safer than a supercharged system due to the fact you can stay out of boost if you drive carefully. However when boost builds it is a lot rougher on the engine because of the sudden power surge on the components.. If you keep the boost low, however, you should be ok.

If you're like me, however, you'd want to not cut corners and do it right so you'd want to get a forged rotating assembly before putting FI on.

Just some facts and opinions I've gathered over the years..

It's really bad on the injectors, fuel pump and filter, and it will burn the o2's up... Some ppl say that it will melt the inside of the cats if you have them

You might be able to do a mix and be okay, just go real light like maybe a gallon of turbo to a full tank of gas.... I definatly wouldn't dump to much in it though

Racing fuel definatly burns colder feel a carb on a car with 93 octane pump gas in it and then feel one with racing fuel and then tell me which burns hotter lol, also i mix my fuel at the track ill usually leave about a quarter of a tank of 93 pump gas in my car and mix it with about 3 gallons of raceing fuel and my car runs fine! O2 sensors and every thing still working like normal!
