Stock boost is around 0.6 bar. I recalled back in the days when my turbo, ECU and injectors were still stock, I have raised the boost to 1.1 bar without an issue. I drove the car for 3 years before I upgraded all the hardware from Evo and dyno-tune the car to run at 1.6 bar.

The difference in terms of power was very obvious from 0.6 bar to 1.1 bar. Guarantee you'll grin ear to ear whenever you boost.

However you need to make sure your car is in very good condition. I was running the stock intercooler but with upgraded intercooler piping. The stock rubber pipes expands due heat and high boost loosing response. Good luck!

Yes it is! The difference was obvious. Back then, how I wish I have an electronic boost controller that has the scramble boost function. Reminds me of "Gone in 60 seconds". Hahaha..

Haha.. that will work too but I had changed 2 boost controller last time. A cheap type that looks like cigarette lighter with flat knob on top but lasted only for 3 years before I changed it to Works Engineering one that was sold with the car.

Yup, no more boost, no more forced induction. I have missed it. Now, I start to tune my 13B. A sneak peek one the mod in the long list.... hehehe.. will share more when the project completes in 3 months.

I'll be back!! (to the car mod world)

can't wait till he posted some pictures, do post some!

His trek was really well done so I'm guessing his 13b is going to be the same too.
