psi doesnt mean anything, you need to worry about cfm. different turbos make different amounts of power at the same psi.

sooo...what turbo do you plan on running 6psi on?

im running 11.5 with a .42/.48 t3 and the only issue i had was a HG. a cometic and ARP headstuds will solve that problem though

im not that big off noob i know some kinda of stuff but people say diff things i was hoping that someone knew from experiance... i kinda thought it wasnt smart to run that high of compression.. do you think if i got like a z6 headgasket ill be ok or not.. dont really got the money to get low comp pistions...
