With a good tune and if you keep it at 5-6 PSI there shouldnt be an issue.

well than thats my answer.. 6 psi.. on a stock internals engine.. exactly what i wanted to hear!!! hurray..

5-6 PSI is going to be good for at least 220-230 RWHP, with headers, exhaust, MAF, injectors, and a dyno tune you MAY be able to reach 250 RWHP. This is depending if you are auto/manual or 4x2/4x4.
headers???

I was soo confused the first time a i read that and then i realized on this truck the turbo manifold will come after the headers... not replacing the headers like on my sentra...

anyway that still seems to be an low number... and injectors, fuel pump, maf (i didnt know you could upgrade this but i guess i will be researching now..) will all be upgraded along when the turbo goes in.. exhaust will probably be done before that.. but dyno tune.. we will see....
