I'm pretty drunk, so please forgive any terrible ideas. I know this forum is full of turbo info and I have run a few searches.

I have a '93 Sentra auto that I had originally planned a turbo 5 speed swap for, but I let some minor rust turn into major rust, and now its just a beater. Anyway, my buddy has a blown up '86 Subaru XT turbo. He wants to see me put his turbo on the Sentra as a joke, which I'm willing to go along with, as long as its cheap and fairly reliable. Either way, I do plan to buy a 5 speed for a future turbo build, so anything I learn/buy should be useful in the future.

From what I've gathered from searches, the stock fuel system is good to 2-3 psi and the MAF to 5. Has anyone tried a boost-referenced fuel pressure increase to run roughly 5 psi on a stock setup? I'd assume the pump can't handle much past a stock setup, but I need a 255lph or larger for my Z31 300zx V8 swap soon, so I could run the stock z pump for a while. I know the auto tranny can't take much, but I have yet to see any real numbers.

Any input is appreciated. Whether I'm still interested sober is up in the air, but either way, it should be entertaining. Thanks.

the stock pump can handle 6 psi fine.

as for using that subaru turbo, its either a VJ or VF turbo. you'll have to custom make the turbo manifold for it.

you could just get the basic turbo kit from TSI. its only $1500, and has just about everything. you could take the maf, injectors and ECU from an auto SE-R or NX2000, have the ecu sent to JWT for a GA16DE+T tune for $600.
