btw the stock block will hold about 500hp but they will hold more...but for hold long...maybe a couple years...maby 2 weeks...
Get a Main Cap Plate and a Valley Girdle to help with block flex. that will help

Sup newbie? I did the import thing fora bit too. Except I had an Evo. No real tire spin to speak of. I'm sortanew to domestics as well.The only one I have reallyplayed with is my ex girls'02 GT withan ATI ProchargerD-1SC. That thing is SICK! Are you wanting a hi-rev screamer, or a torqueietire fryer? I have been goofin with cars hardfor like 6 yrs. I got a few answers for ya. I think boost is the only way to go, but then again, I got spoiled by 26PSI in myEvo

damn 26 psi huh.........i always loved the Evos. I still got some import in me so a hi-rev car is always fun. My main thing though is to get a fast 1/4 mile car.

26 psi is nothing. Haha i was running 35psi on my 1G talon awd before i threw a rod through the block making 650 awhp. After rebuilding the car im deciding to come over to the domestic scene, to many damn headaches from having a turbo car. the heat kills everything. I might not ever run a 10 second 1/4 mile for $8k but i much rather have somethign dependable!
