Turbo 6i

Yes I have read all the threads, buying a kit is to costly ad I like a challenge. So building my own turbo kit. What would I need for a stock 6i? I miss my bov and etc from my sti. So far I've thought of the things I need: turbo, inter cooler, exhuast manifold, intake manifold maybe? Not sure, wastegate? I'm good with cars but never done something like this, can the stock block handle a turbo? What about my tranny (automatic) and my fuel injectors etc, what all would I need to do and upgrade? Looking forward to your guys responses

You'll need new injectors. What year do you have? You'll need a tuner. You can handle about 8 psi on stock block and autotragic tranny. Stock intake manifold will be fine. Most speed 6 parts bolt up fine like the exhaust manifold.

tapatalking.. err wait.

8 psi? My brothers gsx on a 2.0 can run 14. Oh well, better than none. Would I need to switch to 93 octane?
And an 04 6i

Higher fuel pressures would likely also be needed.

iirc = if i recall correctly

He is referring to standalone tuning. There is also piggyback tuning which us v6's need if we wish to go forced induction.

Found this on a quick google search. Check it out. Some good insight.

Its not overly difficult to physically add a turbo. Its getting it fitted & performing properly that is expensive, time consuming and an overall daunting task.
