I was wondering how many pounds of boost would a stock catera motor handle and if boost was applied to it what fuel management/ electronics would be needed to make it compatible to forced induction? :thumbsup:

With the weak points taken out of the engine, heavyduty headgaskets, lower compression ratio... 10-15 i bet.

These engines barely run with standard configuration, why boosting it? If I were you I just would waste neither my time nor my money. But it's just me :)
