ea82t how much boost?

I'm boosting 12psi with an intercooler and some slight fuel management. The car is a daily driver RX. The only problem I have is decreased gas mileage.
I have more planned, but darn it, i want to be the first at something, so I'm gonna keep my ideas to myself until I can conjure up something
Also...Turbo legacys were 2.2 correct? and the WRX is a turbo 2.0? seems the wrx turbo would be more aptly suited for our little engines.

how much is wise though, given that the crank only has 3 main bearings?

your rx is an 87 right?
did you have any problems with the fuel system cutting out at 9 psi?
If so, what did you do about it?

I'm going to buy a HKS fuel cut defender...or a MRT fuel cut defender. Either one should work, and for about $100 too. Only cause i'm not sure what esle to do.
Archemitis: 2.2 would be great, if you could keep it spooled. Sure, i'm gonna want to be fast in a straight line...but i'm really into that huge amount of boost just pulling you out of a turn, so I'm going to go with the faster spooling turbo. Either turbo would be great, it just depends on how you want it to drive.

There used to be a guy on the board that would build bypass for the fuel cutoff for about $25.. I haven't seen him on the board, but I may still have his email addy..
His name was dinosmash2000.. anyone else remember him?
