    Psi means nothing until you choose a turbo.

    5 PSI on a T4 is COMPLETELY different than 5 PSI on granny's 12b turbo'd Volvo :D

    You can boost anything if you really want. There are tons of ppl who boost D series motors.

    I would run a DSM 16g on 5-6 psi. That would get you good results for a stock bottom end.

    yes you will be very impresed with the power from a small turbo. My EF made 224hp/209tq at the wheels with a 16g on 9lbs with a very conservitave timing and fueling. But first you have some things to do before thinking of going turbo the first one is a multiport conversion.

    then you are probably in decent shape as far as a start. You should also have the hf manifold which means you can find an adapter plate for the turbo you want that makes it relatively easy for you to make a turbo manifold for your motor

    I would not recommend a dsm 16g as mentioned previously- a dsm t-25 will be PLENTY and it's only about $100 since it's stock turbo on the 2g dsms, a 14g is also good but a little bigger and probably overkill as well. The 14g will cost a little more as it's from the 1g dsm's and an upgrade for the 2g's. The 16g is great but too big for your applicaiton. If you want to buy a mint one- I have one for sale. The 16g is NOT A SMALL TURBO!

    On a d15b, a 16g is HUGE. He will NEVER make full use of either that or a t-25.
