    You have to ensure the crank, rods and bearings are in good condition With any turbo you put a lot of added stress on the bottom end of the engine. You need the essentials for any turbo application. An intercooler would make the turbo even more efficient.

    if it bone stock engine, do not put lots of pressure, I guess 0.2-0.4 bar/Mpa would make nice extra power?
