Im currently building a vitara set up, and its gunna cost me some $$$, so before I get the turbo I want to drop the motor in (with built bottom and top end) and sorta break it in before I put the turbo on.

and I was thinking Im probably going to be running it N/A for a couple of months before I put on the actual turbo. so is there any dangers of running it like that, and if i was going to run it at the track (after breaking it in) for fun would it be safe?

this is what is going to be the set up

vitara pistions (75mm)
TT h beam rods
sleeved block
Supertech dished valves and retainers
crower stage 2 turbo camshaft
cosmetic head gasket

and theres probably more but thats what i can think of off the top of my head

There shouldnt be any negative side effects of running it na...deppending on your compression ration it might be a little slow though...

Its probably a better idea to break the motor in before the turbo anyways. That way everything seats right and stuff.
