Hey guys, I was looking at getting a turbo for my 6 and was wondering what size injectors and fuel pump should I be investing in to be safe when running about 9-11 psi?

9-11 psi is to high for a stock motor, i would keep it around 8 psi and go with some 42lber injectors and a 255lph fuel pump from warlboro

Most people don't understand boost in regaurds to turbos and superchargers ...

you can make 425 rwhp on a stock v8 with 7 psi on just a small single turbo .. so yeah .. fyi .. make sure you do a little more reading ...

the 05-07 v6s are 4.0s which are different from the 04 and down 3.8s and 3.9s from the mustangs and 4.2s from the F and E series which are in the same engines other than displacement

Heres a real funny video

Honda stands for Hold On Not Done Accelerating
