what are you running tIM?? drag gen III or a custom set up??

i'm going with the greddy kit in may. basically cause i dont want to blow shit up.....i figure 5.5psi will be good for 13's, and i'll hvae a reliable daily driver. then next year i'll rebuild the engine and boost the crap out of it, after i buy the car back off the lease. what i like about the greddy kit is that it comes with an 18g turbo, which is capable of over 20psi:D very cool:D

i'm probably also gonna run a nitrous express N-tercooler kit, and try to hit 12's with some slicks:D

13s with 5.5psi??? i'm not sure about that
actually, i'm guestimating based upon other mods i'm doing.

i have a skunk2 intake manifold, i'm gonna run a 65-68mm throttle body, a test pipe/high flow cat, and i have greddy evo cat-back.

i think i shoudl hit 13.90's with that setup. i know a bunch of guys on club si are running 14.0-14.2 with the kit and exhaust at 5.5psi.

F-MAX

Hey nycivicsi, if i were you, i would go with the same turbo kit that I'm getting....I'm getting the f-max kit this may...it comes with a comression garket which alows you to run 12-13 pounds on a stock engine safely

I don't care what it comes with, running that boost on a stock motor with out a standalone plus top notch tuning will not be safe.

hehe compression gasket, think again my friend. no matter how thick that mother is, nothign can save your precious cylinder walls from 12 psi without engine management.

Greddy kits are very nice (complete kit that looks good) but 1/4 ets won't differ tremendously from stock. With the kit and upgraded clutch 14.5-15 for average drivers, 14-14.5 for good drivers. I base this all on other greddy turboed gsr's and si's and experience at the track.

Sorry but im trying to figure out the basics of all this. What exactly do you mean by "engine management" ??

like a standalone, something that'll manage fuel across the board, spark, etc.
