Hopefully I'll have more than I'll ever need to finish my car soon if all goes well.

Sold my pistons. I have to sacrifice this project for an opportunity I'm giving myself.

Hopefully I can return to my car during Christmas the soonest or maybe next year :( I miss my car so much already just hearing the low timing backfire all the left over gas :((( , my subwoofers, and how awesome it is! Damn this thing was my life. I literally feel incomplete. I think about my 510 every single day and dream about my plans that are ahead.

Tribute to my 510!

 I'm saying most of the time you are not boosting on the street because there is no need to. We are simply driving.The only time would possibly be accelerating from a stop and as there is likely traffic, you are not doing that much or for long, or pulling out out on the highway but there you are most likely quickly cruising at or near the speed limit. So what's left? Start your car and leave the driveway, drive out of suburbs and into town, speed limits, stop and go traffic, idling, parking lots. So just how much time was actually boosting, pouring on the coal, fat to the mat, heel to the steel, stretch it's legs?? Not a lot because almost all the time there's no room, opportunity or need to.


Now if you have a low compression engine it will be under powered below 3K right where you need it in traffic to get your car moving from a stop and up to speed. A normal compression or even higher will have more zip and be more fun to drive in traffic. Now if purpose built for hill climbing, track or drag racing where the revs are always above 3K a low compression high boost engine might make more sense.  


I don't know what the point of this debate is anymore, honestly. 


I would daily my 510 16 miles to work, most of the drive on the freeway. I'm pretty sure I would be "boosting" most of the commute. 


I never said I wanted a low compression motor, go back to the PM's and read what compression would give out from L20b rods and 32mm Flatop SR pistons. Just going by your advice. You said 8.55

If you are having thoughts then no also why are you asking for our approval?

All depends on the size of the turbocharger, idk what you mean most of the time we drive off boost. About all modern cars spool around 2.3k RPM that come stock turbo. I usually drive above 3k no matter what I'm doing, idk how low you keep your motor.
