Are there any issues in running a typical 930 type system on a Euro Spec 10:3:1 compression motor? I know boost can be an issue.

Do you think the valve guides will survive?

My goal is 80 to 100 added horsepower.

Thanks in advance.
Contact Protomotive. They have a CHIP specifically tuned for the Euro spec motor, but you need to run a little less boost than 0.5bar if you are thinking of the non-intercooled version. At 0.5bar, you should be at around 360HP, so at a guess, at 0.4bar you'd be at around 340HP?

If you want to run more boost, you're in trouble. You'll need to decompress that motor for any more boost, but at 0.4 - 0.45bar boost, you'll reach your 80-100HP goal
