Just a few quick questions. Which model turbo unit did they put into the 1996 850R? What boost does it run at stock, how much extra boost can it handle stock, 2-5psi? More?

Re: 850R turbo unit questions... (od1)

I believe they were still using the 15G one. That turbo should still be good for up to 20 psi. Heck, most of the turbo can handle up to that I think. It's the engine that is not holding up. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emwink.gif" BORDER="0">

Mitsubishi 15G. It is good up to 20psi, but you have to be careful runing your Volvo internals that high. If you do, make sure you have proper fuel delivery options, otherwise you risk bending a rod.<p>You could easily go from the stock 11psi to 13 psi, or just chip the car.
