Considered? Yes. Attempted? No.

A small displacement turbo is one of my dream motors. 2.5 using the low compression of the Mahle P&Cs on an aluminum case, 2.2 crank & rods, big oil pump, Supertec headstuds, Carrera manifold and motronic ECU w/knock sensor. Thats all I could figure out on my own though. Researching this stuff made my head hurt and I came to the conclusion that it was going to take someone a lot smarter than me to figure the rest of the motor specifics out.

Goran forwarded me a couple of websites on turbo charger maps, etc, in response to the link above. I'll see if I can find them.
