Also don't expect ten million HP. 250-300 is probably the safe range. If you don't have a lit of experience with turbo production car engines, you need to not go much further.

Oh yeah, get a good intercooler and just because you read it in a book doesn't mean it is always accurate. Bell's book is a lot short on specifics. But is isn't a bad book if you know nothing about turbo engines.

Basically, The kindest thing I can say here is that you have no idea what you are talking about...

Jimmy Hendrix said, "I play by ear". Someone said, "Doesn't that Hurt"!

Same thing about Tuning Porsche's, "I tune by Ear", I say, "Doesn't that Hurt"!!

Additionally, a 2.7 needs no help from a TurboCharger to Blow up...
