Im going to be limiting my boost to 45-50 PSI Until I can O-ring & stud the head (any input on this is welcom). I have had the turbo sitting around for a long time. But I think I paid around 1,700.00 for the Stage 3 Kit. Once I get it on I will probly be wanting to sell my stage 2 turbo the GT3782R.

I'd keep boost around 40psi if the head is completely stock. 45 would be ok but on the high side.

I'd say around 450-475.

Mopar Man the remember the 88r will be flowing more air at 40psi then you 82r. It flows a larger volume of air at the same psi.

Well I think today I will be ordering my 120 HP injectors and hopfully have them in and the new turbo on early next week. Is there anything I should watch out for as far as week links? Drive shafts, Rear ends, U-Joints, Ect... I know I will need to o-ring & stud the head if i want to run much more than 40-45 PSI boost. But what else will I need to do?
Thanks

It does great! I love it. Spools like right now and keeps things nice and cool:thumbsup I can put my edge juce w/attitude on lvl 6 (the HOT mode) and pin the throttle @ like 45 mph in 5th gear and run it all the way up past 110 mph and the EGT's will never touch 1,300*:woot:
