been thinking about putting my turbo, intercooler etc onto it from my other project but was just wondering:
Will the OHC handle 10psi with stock internals?
Can the std computer be retained?
What size injectors are recommended?
Will it work alright with the stock cam?
The 4 speed auto would be the weak link yes?
Not going for all out hp as the car MUST remain reliable and still fetch some kind of decent economy aswell (sounds stupid i know) but just wanted to get ideas and advice b4 i went ahead with it
if you arnt going for all out power then you will be fine!
things only break when you miss treat them!
but putting 10 psi in it is going a bit to far 10 psi will make you truck loads of power i would only pump 5 or 6 psi into and you will make massive ab\mounts of improvement!
but will the auto handle the 5-6psi? i have seen improved shift boxes for the 4speed auto's on Ebay, surely a better firmer shift would improve the boxes life and a bigger tranny cooler? what about the injectors and computer?
injectors are fine the computer will handle it but if you wanna get the most out of it i would atleast run some sort of chip!
yest a improved shift is gonna make it better and dont buy those kits off ebay as you can do it your self for about $4
