hi im new hear and am looking to turbo my g16a baleno. and want to know what is the compression ratio on these standard and what sort of boost could i run safely as i just want a bit more poke out of it but be able to still use it daily. doing the work myself is no prob as i have just finished a turbo project over my work. we turned a bmw 325i motorsport into a 2.7 lower comp T3 monster only runing at 8psi at the moment because on the electronic side we have only used bigger injectors,3bar fuel regaulator and a retard box. the owner is now saving up to have a complete managment system made. we are expecting around the 450 hp mark, on a lsd that will be a good grin to drive! but back to the reason im hear anyhelp would be very helpfull. thanks ian
p.s you will have to bear with me as i am machanicly minded im not into all this writing stuff.ian

the compression ratio on the G16A is 1:9.8 according to their website:

you could run about 7psi safely, that's with the stock bottom end, even going up to 10psi could be risky with a stock block.

I'd say 10psi all day if you lower the compression just a bit.
