    sleeved block and new pistons i would do that b4 i put boost on my you'll need to run either hondata and neptune ecu but you'll blow your blow if your gonna go 15-20 lbs. of boost but i would atleast put new piston in to lower the compression

    to answer your first question, you can run about 6-8psi with a piggyback fmu or afc. with a good tune prolly 10-12, but that's prolly ppushing it.
    I run my jrsc at 6psi with just an fmu and a boost timing controller, i have had no problems in over 8 months, turbo is a different beast over s/c tho.

    get yourself pistons, rods, fuel upgrade and boost up to 20psi with a good tune.
    anything over 20psi i recommend you get your block sleeved.^_^

    i really don't agree my friend had piston and rods and a good tune running 15 bls. of boost and blew his block don't risk it cause your going to pay for in the long run if you want something reliable i would go with a sleeved block and pistons

    the only time you will blow your engine is if you have a bad tune.

    different turbos put out different power at different psi. pick a good turbo then go from there.

    it's going to be whatever you want if you want more advice i would ask kenny tran at Jotech Motor Sports - || Home Page || and see what he tells you or go to T1 Race Development and ask then tony palo what to do one of the best tuners in the country cause i guaranty they will tell you to sleeve the block
