you better build the motor (dished pistons to lower compression, forged crank and rods, probably a cam swap, and high strength gaskets) or you wont get more than about 5psi through the turbo befor you blow the motor, the stock compression is too high on the non turbo motors especially the gt's which have a slightly higher compression that an L model.
