    im doing a turbo 11 psi setup on my b18a1, and im wondering how high can i rev the stock creankshaft, im gettin je pistons and eagle rods so they are not a cause for concern, but the crank i want to keep stock, because its fucking 800 bucks for a forged one

    by the way are there any other mods i should consider while im redoing the whole motor......

    thanks
    matt

    10k if you really want to- I've done it quite a few times. Just build the block to handle it.

    serisouly consider a crank gurdle, such as in the GSR block, it helps prevet crank deflection.

    we're running several 600-800 HP LS/VTEC with stock crank. and they hold up just fine. GSR girdle is not necesarry.
