I'm new to a turbo V/8 and trying to learn it. Once had a svo but this is compltelty different. How much boost can I safely run? My motor has about 30k on it with forged rods ,slugs, 8.5to1 C/R. Stock crankshaft with no main girdle. I've been playing around at about 12psi. With no problems at all. The previous owner ran it at 15psi. with no problems. I'm gonna put it on the dyno next weekend to see what I can run safely. Thanks for any help. -Jeff

SVT: assuming you stole my dream car from me jk, i'd take that PMS and throw it in the river or at least only use it for startup type stuff , that car should make good power with the parts that are in it
Push the boost pressure you need to reach the cracked block point. Expect it to go somewhere over 600rwhp with a turbo. You should be good to around 20psi, maybe a tad less, with your CR and an intercooler with pump gas.
