I was wondering what you guys know about the strength of the internals of my 2.5l. I also was wondering about the strength of the block. I don't want someone to just tell me its aluminum so its weak. I want to go with a custom turbo setup, I have access to a dyno so I will be tuning myself as I am an Automotive Engineering student. I also wanted to see if you guys had any known set ups: fuel, turbos, heads, gaskets, etc. Thanks for your time.

Jon Kensy out of PA is the walking encyclopedia on M5x and S5x strength for boosted applications. He was putting together a resource at some point but it looks like it's stalled out.
