turbo upgrades...

What im wanting to know is when upgrading turbo stages what do u need to immediately replace in your engine so that the bigger turbo wont destroy it? I know theres a butt load of things you can replace in turbo systems but what are the things u absolutely have to replace?

fuel pump, fuel rails, oil pump, oil cooler, oil catcher, injectors, dump pipe, wastegate (internal or external), intercooler, piping, intake.

those are most of the things you NEED to upgrade when increasing boost/getting a bigger turbo.

not really, aslong as your c/r isn't over 9.5:1 then you wont really need to get low compression pistons... and if you're doin' that then i'd go with a low compression package, making all internals give a lower compression.

if seeking a lower compression, you should get a 3" exhaust along with a slightly thicker copper head gaskit.

that's an easy, cheap way to slightly lower ur compression.

Depends on car...

There are many many things that can happen when you upgrade turbos. How good is your tranny? Clutch? What about your brakes? Tires? exhaust system?

You'll probably need to remap your ECU.
