well i bought a turbo,IC and manifold.....now my dad found out about it and is going nuts!!! like when he was 25 he built himself a sweet fiat 124 all motor like pretty much racecar so he knows his shit well. so now hes going on about how my engine is gonna blow, im gonna fry my rings, snap a rod.....etc... i just want to put a turbo on my car and run low boost

d16y8 200 000 km, good condition, always use synthetic oil

if i run 6 psi with a good tune on a p30 will this be ok?? and its only for this summer, once im done boot camp ill be buying forged internals. i know a bunch of you are running like 10 psi on stock internals....so am i good? or should i wait till i get forged internals??

thanks

edit: and yes im getting custom made chargepiping and downpipe i just didnt mention lol

6 psi is hardly a problem so long as you don't lean out during WOT so tell Dad that its okay...many drivers here can attest to the fact that 8psi stock internals is reliable..i for one can say so

just tell him its your car youll do what you want, if your paying for it then whats he care? low boost doesnt hurt anything
im guessing your dads machine shop guy is more into muscle cars by the way hes talking, just explain to him that your 1.6 has a lot more technology in it than his old small block

tell him to come talk to us, and that his machine shop guy may know cars, but how much does he really know about boosting hondas?

well, you might want to remind him that you are not 5 years old, and you have been researching it. may i suggest "maximum boost" by corkey bell for him then. or: homemadeturbo.com, turbod16.com, hell even honda-tech.com but especially here.

well, 6psi is something... you'll ruin your motor if you haven't changed the tune. So prove to him that tuning is the key to keeping your rings happy. Also, internals are good to 250whp... so the pure power isn't going to ruin anything.
