I think they are playing it safe...

See what hot rod magazine got out of a LQ4 (Steel blocked LS) http://www.norotors.com/index.php?topic=7879.0

I'm putting a twin turbo LQ4 in my latest project... should be fun :D
Yer as like says there first run. Are you putting forage internals in it or stock and can you run a turbo setup on stock but just have the psi lower on the turbos or would it still blow the engine apart

I'm a bit new to the turbo game but my plan is to run it stock to start with (apart from rod bolts) on low boost and once I get used to it then strip it and change the cam and add a bit more boost (not as much as Hot Rod magazine). The LQ4 is supposed to be very strong to start with and if it goes bang then just get another one. Cheap as chips, cost me £1200 for a complete cut out engine including ECU, loom and sensors and another £450 to get it shipped from the states :tup:

Spannerpete that looks brill that link is that what your thinking of doing then would love to here the outcome of it and how much you end up paying out as would love to do that myself would be well happy with 500hp as a street strip car and if all it is is to up the psi then sorted lol.

Early days and a lot of learning to do...

I'm going to put a Megasquirt system on as well as I like the idea of DIY tunning. MS3 LSX Plug and Play | EFI SourceEFI Source

The Yanks are getting great power from these engines, just google "turbo LQ4" and they still get 30mpg in a 2 ton truck :D

That's a really good price I reckon.
