Default Head bolts for the Turbo?

[:I]Does anyone know where I can find solid head bolts to fit my 03 GT Turbo? I was told that the head floats at 16 lbs or above and the solution would be to install solid head bolts, then I could take my Boost to 26lbs?[8)]

Huh?

Im ignorant to the whole bolts deal...

But: without bigger injectors the only thing 26lbs will getcha is a lean run and a thrown piston. Besides, doesnt our 16g hybrid lose efficiency @ around 18psi? [:I]

MHO, if you are there, and want to do studs, have the money for them, do them. If you can get them and they are spec. hell just put them in. If you are going to keep this car up into the end of the warranty, keep moding it, then it would never hurt.

I know I look forward to prices in 3 or 4 years from now. I look forward to knowing what works well, the stage 2-3 mod. Bigger turbo as soon as someone gets the plumbing worked out. I am just going to keep improving the looks, the suspension as it wears IE: shocks & struts, brake rotors and pads. Working to a 2.5" or 3.0" TURBO back, depending on the bigger turbo at that time. Stage 1 is enough to break this car in. I think on Christmas break I am going to lower it 1.3" F/R. I cant wait for the struts to wear out for this, but donÂ’t want to replace consumable goods when I will need to sometime any way, and that is the time to upgrade. MHO.

Oh, when you start to get into the 90, 100, and 110 RWHP Sportsters, you damn sure put the studs in.
