The guys over at burger ran at around 25 or 26 psi on a ST n54, so I think it can hold for a while... Maybe in a couple of months I'll open up the engine and forge the pistons, rods, etc... But for now it seems to hold pretty well

The motor will make 600WHP or so all day assuming the tuning and hardware is good. I'd say once you venture much north of that, pistons are going to have a relatively short shelf life. Even with that said, the high WHP singles running around don't seem to be dropping too many pistons and you rarely see rod failure. Just at thinner margin once you start pushing 30+ PSI through the big singles.

Sick. Can't imagine all that power in the 1M. It would be like trying to ride a Miura bull. Wild.

Sounds like this car is going to be scoring 7-1, compared to an average 3-1 win, right?

I have that same fmic. Works great! Install is not very fun though. I got stuck for a while cause that charge pipe elbow was made for the shorter charge pipes. I think they're on the 08-09 MAY 1ers. That was a pain. I didn't think about air flow over the temp sensor either. So now it reads almost 5 degrees higher. I just have to relocate it. I just zip tied it up while I was in there. It really dropped my intake temps though.

Not certain if this was answered, but why did you choose to go with the single turbo?

Why not butcher a standard 135. Doing this to a rare appreciating collectors car is very strange to me.
