Hi . Here is a picture of my billet turbo going to be used to chase 1000hp . My current mods S/S 3.5inh exhaust , injectors, process west intercooler and inlet maniflod, bosch fuel pumps , surge tank, actuator . 06 BF F6 running 377rwkw at 15 psi . I dont have pix of the first upgrade but I'm trying to find them

Hope you don't just plan on turning up the boost and using bolt ons!

I am coming close to the completion of my build, that coincidentally is targeting 1000hp (at the treads).

And I have not fitted anything less than what has been considered to be rated less than 1200-1500hp safety rated!

So far its nearly cost me my sanity, my marriage, my next 10 Xmases and birthdays worth of gifts and a lot of extremely hardcore research into over rating everything as a safety margin!

Not to forget the driveline, the clutch, gearbox, tailshaft, diff and axles need to be extensively upgraded to handle the nuclear explosion that's turning all of this!

I wouldn't push the standard internals much more than 15psi, without expecting some sort of technical conundrum presenting itself sooner rather than later!

it's 10 years ago that post you just quoted... read the rest of this thread and you'll get an appreciation of this build :)

Trav has had it parked for over 3 years. All it really needs ins a new turbo core. I've been teasing him and told him that he should just sell it to me....
