So running a turbo without an intercooler is probably a stupid idea huh

as stated on ZZP when you are running around 5-7 psi its ok not to have one
anything over that psi its highly recommended
thats why evos and those rides come stock because the push 14 outa factory

repinS - heck yes. My 92 Mustang 5.0 is just not economical atm. (Prolly selling it soon anyway, not what I thought it would be when I bought it)

Anyway, adding a supercharger kit to an l36, doesnt that require lowering compression ratio, new intake n heads?

With a turbo, does it make your engine wear faster?

in general with stage three and up turbos its a good idea to overhaul the enigne and put stronger connecting rods, better piston rings, overhaul the valve train, intake port and polish, milder cam, ect.
but for a stage one and two its not much more then intercooler, injectors, PCM, and the other obvious parts

According to ZZP the high compression gives l36'* 5% more power.

to shorten the last message of mine the best option with the least amount of wear on the engine would be stage one or two keep the psi under 14 and you can get away with out uber amounts of money and time invested

yeh stock it gives more HP but if you want to put a stage 4 on with minimum wear on the engine id do everything they list plus stronger pistons, connecting rods, redo the valvetrain, and a milder cam to compisate for the higher compresion created by the huge turbo that is wut i meant by milder cam is to prevent engine wear in a stage 4 turbo kit

Of course your engine will wear faster. There will be more pressure in the combustion chamber, resulting in more pressure pushing the pistons down (more wear on the pistons, rods, crank, and rings). But, this happens with anything. Nitrous obviously does this, as well as raising your compression ratio, or really anything you do to add power to your engine.
