what setup you got.. etclately ive been bouncing off boost cut in every gear besides 1st and its holding up alright.. i've always had an engine blow by problem though.. and it hasnt gotten anyworse since gettin the t28/t3 or whatever it is.
Yea, my point exactly. That is why I'm going to take my time with mine... if it takes me 2 years, then so be it! But, I'm happy with my 187hp ATW at the moment... but I'm not going to stick the FE3 in unless I'm 99% sure I'll be getting over 300hp ATW. Otherwise, why bother?PeterD said:Xscape has an F2T, so he has the turbo internals and lower compression ratio.
Nobody in Australia, and AFAIK America has run decent boost on an unbuilt FE DOHC.
If this is your plan, I'm assumin you will just run it like this till it blows, and then do a proper rebuild?
You could reliably run around 8-10 psi on a 9.2 compression with GOOD tuning I would gestimate. This would get you around your 150-170kw flywheel mark,maybe more. Please keep in mind I'm speculating here.
But why? If that's your power goal, put that hardware on the F2T, and with management and fuel, and BOOST you'll be making 170-180kw ATW.
In my opinion, the FE is not worth doing unless you do it PROPERLY. By this I define a built bottom end, and big power goals. 200kw ATW +++ at least.
