Well some friends of mine was telling me that if i go like 17psi on a turbo in my svt then i would have to get head studs or what ever? But, I thought that the svt could handle that stock.

The SVT can handle that stock with a good tune and enough fuel.

depends on what size the turbo is. different sized turbos are going to flow different amounts of air, therefore 17psi on a small turbo isn't going to be the same as 17psi on a much larger turbo. to give you better info, we need to know what size turbo you are talking about.

A T3 Super 60 or a GT28Rs will get you there.... and it'll take somewhere around 17-19psi to do it.... and with a good tune the stock motor will handle it with ease.

dang it, why does everyone worry about psi. that has nothing to do with anything. go for a set POWER goal and the psi will be were it will be. end rant.

OT, i believe that 03OrangeSVT pushed his and his let go at the numbers that he has in his signature. but that was due to bad gas so who knows how far he could've gone.

Yes he was pushing the limits. Even with a good tune personally I wouldn't go past 300whp on a stock SVT just to keep a safety barrier.


Also you WILL need a J&S Safeguard if you boost you SVT.


It is a knock controll device

But I quoted the amount of psi that turbos in that size range will need to produce to see the power levels he wants.... on a larger turbo like a gt3076r its closer to 15psi....

Plus we both know you need to know how much it'll take so you can get a turbo with enough efficiency to do the job right... believe it or not I actually use the formulas to pick out what size turbo I need.
