    well im new here and wana ask a broad basic question as im noob i have a y7 and it sucks so i plan on buying a clean y8 block as i have a y8 head and mani ect already and running a p28 ecu im shooting for 250whp and a DD will eagle rods and vitaras along with sleeving and maybe a camshaft plus a stage 2 clutch and flywheel be enough to handle high boost as a DD for 250whp anyway?

    becouse i have doughts about current blocks condition but no the real reason is i dont grow money and i need my DD for work ect so im just got go get a block in good shape with as much shit in it as possible for cheap maybe 200-250 shit might get whole engine with it and send block off for sleeving and maybe boring just wondering if the mods i listed are enough for a DD turbo with 250whp

    Right, but your turbo won't be generating boost as soon as your turn your car on. It has to spool up to create boost. That's what he's trying to tell you...your car will feel nice on boost, but severely lacking before your turbo spools up...

    If you want to run 250 whp

    If you will turbo a y8 motor to get 250 whp you have alot of mods to do, and money to spend.

    Upgrade rods, pistons, sleeves, acl rod/main bearings, valves, crank, springs, retainers, fuel pump, well fully upgraded fuel delivery system, headgasket. Complete torbo kit, which could put out that type of power. Ecu tunning.

    Professional mechanics should do this work also.

    If you want to take the easy way, just install a k-motor, k20a2. 200HP stock. A little more with bolt on's. Less headaches. You will get more ooo's and awe's with that also.

    I have a k20a2 with eagle rods, acl bearings, skunk2 stage2 cams. That's plenty for me ^_^

    Good luck man, all I can do is just give my opinion.

    Hope all turns out well

    it would be awesome if people started to listen to people who know what they are talking about. 250 horses is attainable on stock d-series blocks. Buy forged pistons, eagle rods, arp rod bolts, and build your head. Throw the kit on turn up the boost get it tuned and you will be good to go.

    yeah ive slowly been doing my research and what not and i know for damn sure im going to atleast get rods and pistons because as ive done my research a lil everyone says you need them especially the rods. so you dont throw one thrue the block. good that theres ppl like you blanco that dont just rag but actually help. And building ur own turbo system for your own goals piece by piece is best way right?

Little thing i noticed is on ebay and around i see t3s going for like 150-300 easy everyday but i look at brand new turbonetics or greddy and its ridiculous is brand new that special lol?


    P28 would be fine for my ecu right sence im going to be adding vtec
