Ahhh, don't be a wuss . I'm gonna run 20psi on my stock motor. Not all the time, but I'll do it. It's good for bragging rights

20psi may be good for bragging rights, but i dont have no desire to build a engine right now. I have to save up for the clutch and LSD I'll need before summer. I havent driven the car since spring i want to enjoy it for a while.

yeah i dont think he will be to happy with the turbo for low boost for very long. it needs to scream, it is definitely a top end turbo.

here is a dyno of that turbo on my engine. low boost was 14 high was 24

I hate to be the bearer of bad news... but since your on the stock clutch you wont see 270whp. The stock clutches tend to let go around the 240-250 mark.

Yeah thats my issue. The build got expencive and i dont have the money to put a clutch in right now. I know they dont like over 250 horse. Car has become my endless money pit. lol. My tuner is gunna start at around 8-9 psi and see what happens. If i can make it last untill spring on 9psi I will. then put a good clutch and flywheel in it and tune it to 13 psi or so. I know i wont be happy with low boost, but its better than not driving the car for another 6 months. The gauge pod, i honestly dont remember. I google searched for them, found the cheepest one. I work at a Ford dealer so i had the body shop paint it to match the A pillar.

Ok so I talked to my tuner today, and he said the car is coming along great. He told me it made around 275 on about 10 psi. He is going to tone it down so my clutch lastes longer then the drive home. I want around 250 for now, so i can try to save money for the clutch in the spring. i have seen a lot of people running the spec and CM clutches, are they the best for boosted aplications? After the clutch i want to kick boost to 13 psi and should be easily above 300whp.
