Hello everyone i was looking for some advice on what i should do to build my motor up (3.0 liter) to be able to handle a turbo that pushes around 25 psi and help would be very helpful and appreciated thank you
Hey Snow welcome to T.C matey, good to have you. That's a lot of pressure buddy. You'll need to change the pistons, conrods, injectors, fuel pump, you'll need a stand alone ECU, decent cold air intake system with properly rated intercooler, a lot of time and a healthy bank balance.
Greetings and a Warm Welcome to our TorqueCars Forum my Friend!

Good to have you along with us :)
We get asked this question a lot so have a look at these threads which cover the basics. I have to admire your ambition though!:D And I hope you pull it off.

Cheap turbos can be purchased from breakers yards which are ideal for a try it and see type project.:bigsmile:

Please note that I don't think it is worth adding a turbo to an old car with a small capacity engine. There is nothing stopping you but the money and hassle will just not be worth the power gain you get. It is better to just buy a better car for your tuning project.:confused:

Adding a turbo is a major engineering task and without a kit with full instructions and all the parts you need there is a big risk of blowing up the engine. Expect to spend 50 hours upwards on a project of this type. This is not the sort of modification you should undertake unless you are mechanically competent and know what you are doing.

It is worth looking at superchargers as these are generally much easier to install than a turbo is.
