Yeah but I wouldn't take that chance though. An engine is an investment and I want to protect my investment. You and I both know that once he gets a taste of a turbo or supercharger, he'll want more boost. And a stock engine can't really handle more than 4 lbs of boost at the most.

The manufacturer. I still wouldn't take that chance though. Anything more than 4 psi can seriously damage the engine's internal components very badly. Now don't get me wrong now but there are some models out there that can handle alot more boost than that. Like the 3.7 and 3.5 ecoboost V6 engines found in the new F150 and Ford Taurus Sho models. It really depends on how well the engine has been maintained and how you really go about doing it. His engine can't handle that amount of boost because it's worn out. Now a newer engine might be able to but it's risky. It can and yet sometimes it can't.

do you have any clue on what you are talking about? The 'manufacturer' doesnt say anything about how much boost you can or cant run. Ford doesnt state that you can only run x about of boost on X motor. There are ALOT of things that will determine how much boost you can run, like what fuel you use, if you use an intercooler, your ignition system and what your fuel system consists of. Also, using the ecoboost motors in your argument isnt valid, as they come from the factory with lower compression ratio's since they are boosted.

btw, fwiw, one of my friends procharged his 350z and he can run upto 10psi, and my other buddy is putting on a supercharger on his 2011 3500hd and out of the box it runs 8psi.. on the stock fuel pump too.

^ those are MODERN examples on completely different motors

the OP's truck is 14 years old with NON-FORGED internals and a ragged out motor

anything more than 6psi and i bet he'll run into issues starting with melted pistons

Crank is no different in a turbo 2.3,rods are no different.Pistons are lower compression.Get the turbo brain while you are getting pieces.Easiest way to get hp.We have just sold two complete setups from 2.3 super coupes for $650 ea
