hey guys. A friend of mine has the 2.2 and he wants more power. I was wondering how much hp will the stock internals handle. also how much boost will it take if we decide to go with forced induction. thanks for any advice or help.
Well I guess I'll say it. You or your friend aren't ready for this step yet. There isn't a set hp number, psi number, or anything like that where an engine will magically explode if exceeded. It all depends on your set up, the components used, the state of tune, etc etc ect.
Get to reading, or you'll blow something up way before these mythical limits people post up.
I know its not a magic number. i'm just looking for an idea of how much power would still be safe for the engine. i also know running lean will make the engine blow. Thats what suportting mods and a piggyback is for. Trust me i'm not a noob to cars. Just specificly this car.
