dood are you for real????

what kit are you planing on getting first of all?

12 psi is possible with good tuning and an intercooler.

turbo tom's full kit is good for that. or you can get a stg1 kit and do a methenol injection to lower temp, boost more and avoid deto.

i thnk, im just doing the straite up stg1 kit and setting it at the most psi which my car can saftely handle.

12 psi dayum. I dont know much about the Zetec, but a 12 psi you probably only be "safe" if you build up the motor-stronger pistons, valve springs, retainers, lifters, etc. You also want to have 3'' exhaust and headers to release all that pressure

yea but you could do a menthenol injection i think and run 12psi all day. trey isnt ur car auto?

also you do realize that at 12 psi your auto trany will melt.

you could beef up the auto trany to that lentech company or whatever.

i think with toms full kit with the intercooler if you had it tuned properly you could run 12psi safetly. you would need someone who knows how to tune cause im sure you can blow your motor up.

what octane are you running? my car can safely run 12psi with 101octane in the tank, but only about 9psi with 91oct. Mostly depends on your tune, and the octane of gas you use.
