If any one has any questions that they can't seem to answer, feel free to drop me a note at mntepnr@sympatico.ca. I done the conversion last fall and all has been great for about a year now. Once you get boost you will never go back!!! alien

I would suggest even less boost. 6 to 7psi at most. Lenthen the wastegate arm a little bit so it opens sooner. Very hard to do properly, but goodluck.

You are crazy to run 17 psi. Did you change internals and head?

Ah, I run 10-15psi regularly, and have had no issues with my turbo'd N/T. The motor was rebuilt 130000Km's ago with N/T pistons. I put new oil pump gears, rebuilt the tranny, and removed my b-shafts before the conversion, and have 30000km's on conversion with no problems and compression above 195psi dry still.

Are you guys monitoring knock?
Maybe the knock sensor / timing retard is saving your motors for the time being...

No I do not have an SAFC to monitor knock, yet, just the indicator light, and it doesn't stay on, and the plugs have been coming out brown. I have also rewired my fuel pump, and pulled timing back 2 degree's.
