It seems as though people on this forum are 100% against doing single turbos on the N/A 13b's, Can someone who knows what the reasoning behind this is fill in a clueless brotha!?

High compression = EASY KABOOM

" = Needs Very precise tuning

" = manifold porting

' = limitied performance since you cant get high boost

just to name a few

Interesting, what alternative do you recommend instead of running like 8 pounds of boost.

"cheerio" Haha! What options do I have with the N/A I have VERY little experience with these motors and I would like to familiarize myself with this N/A one before I go ***** deep into swapping and rewiring a new motor.

i did an N/A turbo the right way with a microtech LT10S Greddy FMIC Greddy boost controler, 550 Cleaned Injectors PRIMARY, 750cc SECONDARY running 7-9 PSI, ported tII manifold, and walbro fuel pump, and the car ran fine very strong for all of about 30 min blew up while data logging in 4th with 11.9 AFR go figure mabey timing was off ?????
