    yes sorry ive asked this question before but got tons of answers and i was in another forum... so here it is
    what boost can i run on a mini-me? its a6 block, and z6 head. with a6 pistons. I want to run a T25 turbo or 14b, basically a really small quick spooling turbo. I want to run 8 or 9lbs max but im not sure if that is to high for mini-me, i think the compression ratio is around 9.9:1. what should be the max i should run and im kinda new to turbo kits... this is what i have so far...

    Front Mount intercooler
    HF manifold (ported)
    Not sure which turbo to get.
    I got all the charge pipes
    And a BOV.
    what else will i need, i know injectors but not sure which one
    and dont i need a fuel management unit??
    thanks for the help

    thats fine for boost. its not too high.

    MAX BOOST is not something to even consider. read the sticky- turbo 101. you want to build and tune for a power level- not a psi level. you're going backwards.

    it all comes down to proper fuel delivery and management.

    if you're going to run an FMU and stock injectors- I'd say 8 would be a safe level.
    vafc hack and some 440cc's, and i'd say 9.

    anything higher, you're going to need a 3-bar map sensor, and thus, a computer than can intrepret the different voltages correctly. obd0 maps are good for 9.65 psi.
