On a Series II L36, over 7psi of boost would need bigger injector then.

The SC 3800 has different internals, so a born-NA 3800 would die alot faster if you had the same amount of boost, right hector? I imagine a tranny upgrade would be a must for a turbo with decent psi, but dont take my word for it, ask the expert. I figure a turbo good for 30-40HP is good enough for me, then maybe add an intercooler to take it up a notch. I personally want my engine to last about another 80k miles, even with a turbo if i can get the money and convince the parents...

We just completed our first turbo project. It'* NOT on the market, and I won't have any pricing information or availability for at least a year, but I thought you all might like to see just how we did it:

www.INTENSE-Racing.com

Just click on Our Turbo Project on the left panel.
