    I've only asked them for a build not that'll buy anything from them. i can get parts cheaper then what these mechanics shops sell them for unless the fabricate it themselves. but even they said the reliability of being a reliable engine is low

    I know in the Cobalt world a shop has a 898 whp Cobalt SS, and thats a 2.1L motor. it had to hit 56 psi to even make that power and then it was a full on race car. Everyone who has tried to get that endeavor has either quit at 500 whp when everything broke or they didn't have the funds to really pay for all the parts.
    they told me it would be around 45psi to get it to 900 range. but like i said i want to slowly build it towards there.that is another issue also fuel type I've taken that into consideration as well. at moment I'm trying to build to figure out how much i can suck out of specific engine on pump gas then gears towards e85

    wouldn't that take the subaru out of it since its a chevy engine. even though would be much more reliable the a 2.5l H4…. yes mechanics are smart and more then just physics is against me

    That's cool. And certainly badass...but there aren't a lot of them running around. They are few and far between.

    Start the video at 4:30 mark and listen to what goes into it. It's not specific, but will give you a good idea...especially the part about people from all over the world working on it. Think about how much that will cost...

    If they are speaking in terms of psi instead of CFM, tell them to do their homework.

    I guess the bottom line here is that you should probably step back and do your own research. You'd do well to go read a few books on EFI and turbocharger basics. While you can hire a tuner, you'll need a background in the area. Also... you may want to get into stock trading or something.

    i already do stock trading for fun.i got the money . that isn't an issue i like to plan out the whole build before i start buying parts
    and idk maybe they should but i don't know turbos to well to judge off the bat and I'm trying to lean about the engines first before moving up to turbos

    Aside from some general knowledge regarding forced induction, some punctuation and the shift key may go a long way for you, as well.

    Last time I checked, Brazil and Norway were on different continents, unless the tectonic plates have shifted on me in the last few months.

    If that's the case... brb, going to Argentina by way of Zimbabwe.
