iv got a 1.5 engine and i need to pull it apart and rebuild it so i might as well do all the internal work while iv got it all apart so what would i have to do to handle say 10-14 psi ???Asian_907 said:You don't really need aftermarket pistons when you're pushing 1 bar.
But, what you will need is a fuel management system such as an SAFC or something similar, bigger injectors but you'll have to do the math depending on how much boost you want and how much fuel you need, and you'll need a bigger fuel pump.
If you want to push much more htan 12-14 psi, you WILL need to do a lot more internal work, but since you're asking basic questions, I don't think you should push much more than 10psi and keep it simple until you are more experienced.
ill be putting a t3/t4-t4 turbo . when it comes to swapping 1.5 to the 2.0 do you have to swap anything else at all after that engine has been swappedAsian_907 said:Well...
If you gotta pull and rebuild anyways, why dont you sell the 1.5 and buy the 2.0 Beta? It's almost bolt-on and it's a lot more interesting pulling it apart and rebuilding it. It's one of the most common engine swaps on Hyundaiperformance.com. What kind of turbo are you going to be running anyways?
