Turbos

Do you need to do anything to your engine before you install turbos? I've heard you need to get forged parts but I know some people that have turbos with stock parts. Help?

If you stay low boost on forced induction and stay 50-100hp under stock internals limit you'll be fine but right at or above max you need to forge

Your question is way to vague. Like stated above its all about what kind of power you want to make. The stock internals will be plenty for lower boost, which with full boltons and a good tune, will probably put you around 575whp give or take. Anything more then that, although it has been done plenty, i personally wouldn't feel comfortable without going forged.

If you need to ask that question you have a long ways to go before you should buy any type of forced induction for your car.

GT_fanatic,

When first starting with forced induction, it's not a bad idea to buy a kit/package. These packages are usually for low boost/stock internals applications and include everything you need. Your tuner should be able to tell you how much boost your engine can safely handle and how much he/she can safely tune for.

If you have any other questions, feel free to shoot me a PM!

It all depends on how much power you want to make! Im still basically stock with my car down to the clutch!
