Assuming you want to increase boost, yes!<img src=/images/forums/snitz/smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>
Do you know of any good auto wreckers in your area (lots of newer Hyundais?)?

hey put an intercooler in that turbo because it will not hurt the engine. it only will increase power and you will be able to turn up the boost on the little t15 turbo on the scoupe. so do it but look on ebay for one for cheap.

Why not fit an air-water interooler? I am :)

But seriosuly, before you consider increasign the boost, consider fitting an oil cooler! I ahev had an oil temp gauge fitted to my S-Coupe Turbo, with the temperature sensor in the sump. At 60-70 km/h around town, the oil temperature sits around 100 deg C. Speed upto 110 km/h down the highway, and after 20-30 minutes, the oil temperature will hit 140-145 deg C. And this is on a mild 25 deg C day, with the boost set at the 'standard' 10 psi.

Bear in mind that it is around 150 deg C that engine oil starts to break down!

Now I have a 10 row oil cooler from a Saab 9-3 Turbo fitted, and the oil temperature sites nicely on 90-100 deg all day long. It cost me A$100 at a European wreckers, with an extra $60 for a sandwich plate from Revolution Racegear, and A$50 in hoses and fittings.

For A$210 it is cheap insurance against an engine rebuild.
