Hello my europeans friends!
I need get off from web some time, but now im back. And yes, i continuos with only 8 valves in head... .. I didn't have money for make my dream change to 16V. My turbine brokes( i think make overspeed because the high pressure), i need buy other turbine, and my money goes down.. Now i using a bigger turbo, A/R. 50 cold, A/R. 63 hot, Garret. Really nice turbo, much more power(don't make so hot the air pressurized).
And now i have the curious.. Somebody here know how much pressure or power, the standard C20NE Rods can resists without crash? Because i stay with forged competition pistons, but i continuos with standard rods. I crashed 2 rods in my former engine, now i have some fear for put pressure again. I stay with 14,5 psi all te time, and 22 psi in overboost.
Thanks for any information!
