turbo questions

ok first off if i want a big turbo that would be running on lets say 20psi or more...what would i have to change internal wise so i dont completely obliterate my motor? ive got a heavy foot also id like to take to the track every now and then when i do this

i was thinking maybe rods, pistons, milling the head, camshafts and cam gears, crankshaft is out of the question i priced those out and there ridiculous

what about intake and exhaust valves and springs would i have to upgrade those as well?

any suggestions would be greatly appreciated thx guys and girls

for 20 psi, all you'd have to do is basically rods and pistons. nothing else.

ok the only reason why i chose 20psi cause its right in the middle of to little and to much for a dd also if i ever wanted to go more boost and had those other upgrades i would be more then safe as well as i would have the hp and torque needed to go down the track at a good speed

Stop rating your power in damn psi, people!!!

Run 20psi on a gt2560 and then run 20psi on a gt35r. BIG fuggin difference.

You say you have a heavy foot and like to go fast...sounds like you want 300+whp. A nice gt2871r or gt3071r will get you movin right quick.
