Why do you feel you need to upgrade those components? What is your goal with this engine? Also, you plan to run 20 psi but you don't know what turbocharger you're running? Boost pressure should not be the goal. Nobody builds an engine and says "I want 20 psi of boost. I don't care what kind of power it makes or what turbo I'm running, I just want 20 psi."

20 psi on X turbocharger is going to perform differently than 20 psi on Y turbocharger. What are your goals?

Like keel said it depends on what your goals are. I always sleeve engines I'm planning on making big power with, learned that lesson the hard way several times when the stock sleeves cracked. A built head is always a good thing on a turbo setup making any real power. Are you building with budget constraints?

Imo, it's pointless to sleeve a d. You can make over 600 whp on stock sleeves with a good tune. If your making that kind of power your just in it for bragging rights. If you want more power than that for a race car, go b or k.

As mentioned, we need to know goals to give suggest. There is nothing wrong with that head gasket. Why switch it if it's working. No need to switch unless it blows. I run cometics on all my builds as they are usually custom and need something stock won't cover. What fuel you are using would also be good to know

water meth injection will help you make alot more power because you can run a lot more timing with out detonating. so you will gain a lot of power.

@Keel i feel to upgrade coz now i want more power from it, where did i said that boost pressure is my goal ?? my goal is to run this engine at it's max output without failing, lets say i want more power with stock sleeves i throw in the cams springs retainers and meth kit too, raise the rev limit to 8k and with the meth its going to make more power so then am i risking my sleeves by upgrading the head and meth ? this is what im trying to figure out, yes it's a budget build i don't want to spend too much from now on, and the fuel im using is 93 ron, this is best we can have in Pakistan.

You aren't sure which model turbonetics you have but you are running 20psi or you want to run 20psi?

The list above is that your current setup?


I would start with the head upgrades.

Very good Tuning is going to keep your cylinder walls from cracking. 93 is going to help lessen the chance of detonation.

Like they have all been saying you need to pick a quantifiable goal then work backwards. If max power on a stock shortblock is the goal just perform regular maintenance and have the tuner work his magic. 240hp is about the most you can safely run so I'd shoot for about 225. The upgrades you asked about would be to achieve much higher hp. Hope that helps.

suspension and brakes fall into the performance category as well.

I say post what you have for those components, and see about improving them.

It also would not hurt to have a different final drive in the transmission. That alone can be a HUGE performance gain if geared properly

In my honest opinion, why not just learn to love what you have if it's a budget conscious build?
