    Ok, well I don't have the $$$ this year to do the re-sleeving. It is being saved for the coming 2006 summer season. I have t3/t4 A/R .57 / .63 turbo that I would like to install this season. I would like to enjoy my setup this year.

    What psi should should I run on my setup this summer?

    Here is what I have:

    - Stock b18b block
    - New OEM headgasket
    - New ARP head bolts
    - New OEM timing belt
    - New OEM water pump
    - Upgraded radiator fans
    - Removed A/C
    - Uberdata w/ 450cc dsm injectors
    - Walbro 255 lph (low pressure)
    - Percision FMIC
    - 3'' exhaust
    - DSM BOV
    - Tial Wastegate 38mm

    i think 8 -10 would be sufficient for a good grin factor with the proper tuning...

    the real question should be, how much power should i be able to make

    what you should do, is use turbo math and find out how much boost you'll need to run with that turbo to make the power you desire :)

    i think he wants as much power as can be attained without grenading the block...

    you'll mst likely top out the 450's before you're in danger powerwise of blowing up your block, assuming a good, solid, conservative fuel tune and moderate ignition map.

    Cool good to hear, I am on my way to having the $$$ for sleeving. I have saved 45 dollars so far :D. Right now I have an 8psi spring so I will run with that. Thanks for the help guys, and I will post pics and time slips when I get that far.
