As a novice to the world of turbos, I have some questions about compression. I'm rebuilding an 81 turbo engine and would like to increase performance without harming driveability or increasing chances of detonation. I plan on adding an intercooler, but am unsure of how high I can go with compression and manifold pressure. The engine has dished pistons, can I go with flat top pistons? How much boost is safe? Cam?

Any info appeciated.

There's a table of block/head/piston combinations at Z Club Of Texas at <A HREF=http://209.39.254.202>http://209.39.254.202</A>/ in the technical references section provided by Jim Wolf that mights give youy what you need.
