it's still very early in terms of big turbo upgrades, but I will say unequivocally we are making real progress and haven't blown a motor yet. Safe tunes with conservative ignition timing and boost levels make sure cylinder pressure is not sky high. FYI we are staying in the 19-24psi boost range.

There are a few early adopters running around with big turbo raptors and various configuration turbos. We have a few projects currently for stock motors, mildly built, and fully built. That's not to say oem engines are bullet proof, more aggressive tuning could crack a piston/ringland. but so far we've not had an issue

no need for disappointment, we've just begun to scratch the surface. However just like any other serious platform, forged rods, forged pistons, cams, valve springs and fuel pumps will be needed to make serious power.

turbo upgrade really is the next logical step. there are many different size rotors, housings and wastegate configurations which complicate matters but that's the most interesting part of our work

I believe you guys told my customer his goals were not achievable with a stock bottom end and that he'd have issues at the desired power level. Then again I think he was at loss seeing as his GTR makes good power on a stock bottom end. But, not all twin turbo V6's are created equal. It's nice to see you guys are making progress with the HO Ecoboost platform.
