Turbo

For tax returns I'm thinking about buying an on3 performance kit and boosting it 6Ibs but my motor is stock, is this a good idea, I know that bottom end can hold up to 450 but idk about the pistons or anything else, tell me if I should

You should be just fine with 6 pounds. They say their car made 330 with 5 pounds, so i imagine 6 will give you 350 or so.

Stock bottom end can usually hold up to 10 psi, but I would stay 9 or under without forged internals

I hear good things about on3 from a gentleman I work with that was with JEGS before moving down south. Biggest issues were hardware missing, that kind of thing. As far as reliability and performance he never had complaints.

Ill inquire on it. Maybe there was an issue, but the aforementioned co-worker of mine was tech support there for a few years and never got a performance or durability complaint.

I'm doing something similar but I'm gonna build my motor this year and do my turbo the next. It's gonna suck to have potential for more but being held back by a stock bottom end. I'm gonna stay tuned though looking forward to some good insight on the installation

Me too I'm thinking of buying the whole motor and doing it that way. That's why I joined this site just trying to see what everybody is doing and maybe learn from their mistakes maybe save a little headache
