    im wanting to make roughly 300whp, as a goal, i am wondering the quality of the rev hard kit, and if it will be able to meet my goal effectivly and efficiently, its $2200 for the whole deal, including fuel pump

    ive heard that there kits are "self explosion" kits, wether this is true i do not know, but this is what i hear in other forums, i do know their piping is mild steel, which is fine, and they use a half quality waste gate, jus curious as to what you guys think, ill be ready to purchase in 1 month, trying to decide on what will be best

    also this wont be stock internals, only 6 psi on stock internals until i build the bottom end, but i dont plan to hit the 300 whp mark until the rest is built

    and?

    plenty of people run these kits, they need to be tuned right.

    maybe you blew your engine because of the lack of tuning or it was bound to blow any day

    It's all about the tune...if it's tuned right a boosted car can be reliable.

    Cracked pistons...I would say detonation due to a bad tune or no tune at all.
