It really depends on the turbocharger. Abacus made 600whp or something like that with an FP red on an all stock Evo9 engine.

Turbo upgrade will definitely be the better option, much more power will be gained from it.

FP's turn around on rebuilds has been good for a while. When I sent mine in last year I think they had it for about 10 days. And my turbine housing needed to sit in an acid bath for two days lol....

Oh this is the X forum, oops.

I still think 19's look dumb.

Since its a X, an 18x10 or 10.5 should be used with a 275/35r18 with a 20 to 25 offset. All you'll need to do is roll the rear...

With only 500 miles they'll be fine. As long as you get an identical tire (brand, model, and size), the allowablw tread depth difference is 4/32" IIRC.

Should be running a strutted style piston for anything over 550whp or so. I personally put them in everything. But if you extrapolate the ~550wtq capacity of those rods to 8500rpm, thats almost...

19's do not belong on an Evo, they do not look good.

18x9.5 with a 30 to 35 offset is what you want, with a 265/35r18 tire. You'll need to roll and do a bit of a pull on the rear fenders with a...

Not sure if serious....

Torque specs are based on the strength of the fastener. Not the weight of the part it's holding on.

SAE Grade 5 is close to Metric 8.8, "medium strength"
SAE Grade 8 is close to metric 10.9, "high strength"

Metric 12.9 exceeds SAE Grade 8. Probably close to F911 it aircraft hardware.

I hope you're planning to install a turbine shaft speed sensor if you're planning to push the turbo that hard.

The 6785 certainly does work on the English Racing EvoX, right around 1050-1100whp all-in running methanol. The real question is what is your power/performance goal for the car?

Even if it's built. Only revving to 8k with S3's is a waste, you're needlessly shifting power to the right.

There is absolutely no need for S3's on a stock engine. You're just shifting the power to the right. S2's are the biggest this setup really needs.

You need to measure how much oil pressure the turbo is getting.

However, using 1qt every 500 miles is a lot more than just turbo leakage.
