: : : Not thinking about playing around with the boost anytime soon, etc., but how exactly could that be done?

: has anyone changed the pulley size? if so, any problems...im assuming that it cant be too great for the car.

The real question is how much boost can you run before you incur detonation, without having to lower the engine compression or install an aftercooler....Between 6 and 7 psi is generally recognized as the max responsible boost you can run without doing one of these 2 other things..
