                He's planning on bringing it to the dyno day to surprise a few of us... :)

                In any case, I see a lot of turbo mods, but no mention of supporting mods inside the engine to support 350+whp. Even with a dead solid tune, there's only two people that are running 300+whp boosted on OEM internals currently. Does anyone know if the engine was built? Doesn't look like there's a coolant reroute either.

                I applaud the work and parts though. Just needs finishing IMO. If you're going to go that far, might as well go all the way.

                  Yeah that's a good point, can't imagine the stock pistons will hold up that well with that power, forged would probably be needed. I hope he's coming out, would be good to see in person.

                    Yeah, every dyno day needs a catastrophic failure!

                    Just so long as it happens after my run....

                      i "think" it was already turbo'd before. not sure if it is built or not.

                        pistons arent the problem from what ive seen but more or less the rods.

                          :lol: if I was going to put down that type of power from a 1.8l four banger you can guarantee damn well I'ld do the pistons too. Just not worth taking the risk with the rest of the motor in my books.

                            :lol: Foo.

                            At that power goal, it's all of the above. If the tune is even a little off, detonation will destroy the ring lands and/or the rods.
                            The stress of that power will push the rods over the edge eventually.
                            And if his cylinder temps get high enough, the hypereutectic pistons will actually expand so much that they'll seize into the cylinder walls. I've seen the aftermath of that in person. It sucks and it's cool all at the same time.
                            Forged pistons and rods for our cars now can be found so cheaply from CAT, M-tuned, Belfab, etc. that it's crazy not to go ahead and build at least that much when you're building something so extreme.

                            What still gets me is that it sounds like it's going to see some track time and there's not a coolant reroute going on. But I digress.

                              Whew. OK. So the internals are forged. And there is a coolant reroute, it's just using the dual thermostat design... Sweetness.
