How much of a turbo can the stock internals on a 00RS take? I've read about reliability troubles. What kind of power can be expected reliably with the available kits? I want more power, but I want it to be reliable.
I believe with very good tuning and a intercooler. 8psi
With AVO great kit you can run 6 psi reliably
with a ludespeed kit tuned properly you could run 5psi without an intercooler.
and DNT's future SC you should be able to run about the same
I run 8psi regularly, so far 20k miles since turbo install, no troubles. Though I have tec2 engine management.
Occasionally run at 10psi, usually with octane boost or a few gallons of 100 mixed in.
I have large TMIC
with conservative tuning at 8psi I get 224 hp 244 lb/ft
