effects of higher boost
I ran 2.0 bar levels in my 8.3-1 compression kh engine for a good 20+k
miles until another driver decided to be kind enough to run a red and
allow me to hit them. Anyway, the car is almost stripped and the top end
of the engine is off. I was amazed to see how good the cylinders still
were. The ridge at the top was was barely a skin and still honing marks
there. The engine never knocked or otherwise and burnt oil only from the
turbo. Incredible how great these oiling sytems are. Maybe the oil jets
helped it some. Anyway, use premium, and careful not to exceed the
computer's limit, I didn't have any trouble. The plugs and pistons don't
show leaning out in the least.
P.S.- The block is still up for grabs. 1st who wants it, gets it. You
just have to pull it from the car. It is bare, though, but free.
