Wouldn't it be better to build the engine up before throwing a turbo in?

Read that the stock duratec is good up to 11 psi with a t25, but that is of course only one opinion
I too would be interested to know what people consider good preparation for a turbo

Lol 01+ 2.3Ls are Duratecs

Pre-98 2.3Ls are LIMAs.

The best way to run a turbo 2.3L is to build up to Thunderbird 2.3T specs and run it like that.
