Worth it?
Wednesday, April 11, 2007 8:19 PM
Is turboing a 2.4t worth it? i see many of you have done it.

im getting my head ported and polished by a racing engines shop. but im worried about sqeezing a head gasket with boost and everything. So is it really worth the trouble to boost this motor? Does it add that much performance to the car? is there a specific piston and cams yall are using for the turbo application?

my MSN is LxInside@hotmail.com if anyone would like to chat with me.

7psi got me 240hp/280ft-lbs of torque, nothing makes an SRT owner cry like a cavalier kicking thier ass.

What parts did yall use for your pistons and cams and such to go good with the pressure from the turbo?
