What can be done to the 1.0 to strengthen it? How much boost can the the stock bottom end handle? I read about Vitara pistons all over here, but do they only work with the G13? If they will work, what rods would work with them?

Thanks,
Jordan

I have done a lot of reading, most of the useful information that I have found has been for the 4 cylinder. But thanks, I guess.

Check with t3 ragtop.
He has some modest experience with the 3 cylinder and has a brief thread on how to pump it up, including a turbo.
With any luck, you can just buy his!

Once you get the cars dialed-in (compression, leaks, bearings, alignment, brakes) swap in new rubber and glass, you've got something which should last for years!

What kind of power would you like to make?
The stock motor is easily good enough for 10+ psi, as long as you time and fuel it right.

Going to be 15+ psi, will the stock g10 internals take this? What would have to be done to safely run up to 20psi?
