    10-12psi can be done "reliably" with a proper tune, but going forged for the important bits is the only reliable way to run boosted long-term, combined with a decent tune of course.

    The car has been rebuilt and running non turbo for a few months. The turbo project is back in the works, and will be re- turbod within the next few months. Build thread is to follow with detailed instructions and pictures.

    I am working on turbocharging my Mazda MP3 with a k04 and would like to know how you were able tune it? Was it with the stock ECU or a stand alone?

    MP3 has advanced timing, so you don't want to use the stock ecu if you boost.
