How many psi from a turbo can the stock 1.6L sohc X3 accent handle without there being any problems? I heard the heads are good.. but what about the rest of the internals?

I assume you mean 1.5L sohc..

I would say around 7-8 psi, because if you go higher, you generally need to retard timing under full boost. That is a general rule for most all cars being turbocharged. However, I have talked to a guy in canada who was running something like 10 psi, with I *think* no timing retard, on stock inernals. he didn't speak english so well, and I was kinda amazed when he gave me a few 'no's as I asked if he had certain things that I would think youcould not do without.. but he seemed to be doing ok. Unless he didn't understand what I was asking, always the chance of that..

I have run 15 to 18 psi and she held together just fine. You need enough fuel to support it but you are pushing your limits. I wouldn't do over 15 without some Scoupe pistons.
