I run a 22ret in my truck and i used a closed chambered head from 22re. as for the block and turbo,they have 175,000+ and i rebuilt the head from an EFI engine because that is all i had. i can crawl over just about any thing and i only have to crack the throttle alittle bit ounce in a while. and for the freeway........i couldn't be happier being able to do 100mph+ in fifth gear on level ground, with 35's!!! I would run it if i was you. there is a few things you will have to do like change the oil more often, and make sure you have a good radiator, and use a turbo clutch and flywheel because there bigger and can hold more pressure. and one last thing watch the temp gauge because it doesn't take much to blow the head gasket, that is how i got mine <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

Wolfhalen, you still can't blame the turbo for running too hot. If properly coold, you won't have a problem. It is like using the 22R radiator with a 350 V8 and saying the V8 is the problem with the overheating because it generates more heat.

If you build something, build it right. I ran 8 psi in 100+ degree weather staying below 200 degrees. Usually hangs around 185.

The reason for the intercooler is to force even more air than 8psi. You don't have to run one. The intercooler is to help with detination, not overheating.

<font color="yellow">My uncle is into the whole ICCA racing thing. (Sure, they spend as much on their vehicles as we do, and can only drive them in circles. But they drive in REALLY FAST circles).

Anyway, he's an instructor occasionally at Mid-Ohio and he's told me one of the first things they do when they show up is check the student roster for people running 911 turbos. A couple of the instructors will take however many students that may be aside and explain to them that they will have to run their car at idle in the pits for about 10 minutes to let the oil circulate through the turbo. The 911 turbo is worse than most, because the engine is essentially oil-cooled, (Porsche will tell you it's air-cooled, but the 911 6-cylinder doesn't hold 4 gallons of oil because the engineers screwed up) so they can fry one FAST after being hard on the throttle pretty much for 30 minutes straight, then just sutting it off. People have wrecked brand new tubro motors in one weekend up there...

So the moral of the story, let the engine run for a couple minutes if you've been working the turbo really hard (mountain passes, mud running, ect.)</font>
