build ur internals up first and then boost, at least u can run a higher psi then without blowing ur engine, if u decide to not replace ur internals then just run a low boost like 5-6 psi

Make sure if you are getting turbo, and running higher boost you get a good tune and if you are runnning more than 7-8 PSI your pushing it for that SOHC.

do your engine first that what im doing pistons,rings,rods,slevees everything, but i aint going to lower the compression of my car...the thingis that your engine dont have much torque so if you lower the compression is going to take forever u rpm to go upinto you get boost is truth that u can boost more but u loss torque and if you wanna do it right do the head, port and polish,cam everything........is going to cost u some money but this hobby is expensive...good luck
