Can I turbo charge it? I have the turbos and all of the plumbing. My concern is that the compression will not be trubo compatible.
On the otherhand, When I turbo charged the Justy, the book put it at a 9:1 ratio as I recall, and it loved the turbo, at about 6 to 7 lbs.
Not afraid to do the work, just don't want to kill the engine.

That being said, my friend has 11psi on his stock ej25, stock internals but it has been painstakingly tuned properly, and it has been running as a race/daily driver for 2 years with this set-up.
The ej18 is the same, proper tuning allows for higher boost but for an average set-up 4-5 psi is the most i'd try.

I want to be conservative at first, and then move on to more racey tuning and boost levels. Even still I will be staying about 7lbs max.
