It's coming down to crunch time and I still haven't decided how hard I want to push this engine. I'll get down to the facts.
What's the most you'd push on a motor like this if it was your car? I like the hahn base setting of 8lbs but obviously everyone wants more boost.
I have 105,000 miles on my eco. It has been boosted and beaten most of its life. I'm at 17psi currently and ~250-260whp.
That sounds promising, I bought it with 102k from a 60 year old lady who bought it brand new in 2005 and drove it 40mi round trip to work everyday. Before me I doubt the car had ever seen redline. That's a lot of power though on a stock motor! My biggest fear is a rod failure.
Boosted L61s will hold 300whp with a good tune.
