Thirdly, there are two sides to a turbocharger, the exhaust simply drives the turbine... there is no connection between the intake and exhaust. In other words nothing could possibly be 'sucked' in from the exhaust side and end up in the intake side.

The more likely scenario is that you found out that the stock engine has ZERO chance of being boosted to 15 lbs. and last more than a short period of time.

As pointed out earlier... if you stay at 7 lbs. or less you should be OK for some time, but you'll can at least expect the engine to last less than 50k miles. You cannot expect to increase cylinder pressure on that magnitude without significant damage to components that were never designed for such conditions. There are no free rides.

Dude, he put the muffler on the intake side- read the post.

If you post on this forum some absurd story I, or anyone else, has the right, and maybe responsibility, to point out that it's absurd or factually incorrect. I do not believe this guy, or anyone else, would weld up a muffler to the intake. That is not a personal attack. If you said you drove your Ridgeline into the side of a cliff and didn't get a dent I'd say the same about you.

Are his actions hurting me or the community? Yes, I believe he is. He's trying to convince people that you can successfully make such extreme modifications to a stock engine without repercussions. I feel that it's the responsible thing to do to point out that there is no free lunch in this fantasy. If you read what the guy is really trying to do... sell turbo kits... you then see who has the real agenda (and it's not me).


Joe, I hate that you are a lifetime member, this comment of yours hurts this community. Secondly, your anti-spam measure in the signature is dated and ineffective. Keep up or leave.

That is so people can contact me. I am the one and ONLY ROC email address that people can contact.

So in all due respect I say the same to you. Either deal with it or leave.

Re: Finally - A Turbo For You Guys!

As for this entire thread... it was a FARCE, a SCAM. Anyone that would believe such nonsense deserves what they get. Mufflers on the intake, etc.

The result is the guy screwed around and destroyed his engine. All you pie in the sky people that can't deal with the truth can swallow a huge dose of REALITY.

I won't post here again. The world is full of idiots and if this is what you want to do then you'll fit right in. I'm sure you also believe in magic fire injector spark plugs, magic fuel pellets, and fuel line magnets. Vendors love to prey on the weak minded.

I'm sorry you can't deal with the truth. Find fantasy land and live there. Every word I posted is TRUE. Live with it. Others would have just banned you outright, but not me.

You are quite late to the game. This was pointed out very early in the thread. No news here. Move along.

Re: Finally - A Turbo For You Guys!

I'm going to close this thread. It offers no value and is a good example of what not to do. I suspect much of it was nothing more than fantasy and what the OP did just resulted in a destroyed engine.
