im thinking this has been asked loads and I know in theory its possible running a low boost system but will the ECU adapt?? mine is a 97 (built in 96) Pontiac fire fly 3 cylinder gas.
was thinking 5-7psi system with a small intercooler.
the engine is strong with no leaks and does not burn oil.

thanks stuart

With a few minor mods, it's not a problem. The motors are very well built, and can stand that small amount of boost easily. Search for coolant temp sensor mod

right then as budget is every thing I will start looking for a nice small snail to give my mighty three cylinders a helping hand :) then fab up a manifold and braze a oil return to the sump and then look for some where to tap into the oil feed needed to keep the snail lubed up. now I understand carbs and mechanical stuff but electronics baffle me so will prob be asking questions later on as I get easily confused lol
thanks people :)
