8psi on a stock motor will be about max, but you are def going to need to tune. Running that kind of boost on a stock tune can scatter a motor fast. I would highly recommend larger injectors as well... and engine that runs too lean = disaster

In order to tune I have to buy a new computer

Not necessarily... you can find software to reflash yours or some places will do the reflash for you if you send your pcm or ecm to them. Look up tpg tuning, slow boyz racing, early performance. Possibly David Varner on my fb page. He's a SRT-4/evo master

cheaper than buying a create motor or rebuilding one that scattered due to too much pressure on the internals, or leaning out

I just read on the 2gn.org site I can run the turbo on stock everything but I need a rising rate fuel pressure regulator

as long as you keep it low boost you can. I wouldn't do anymore than 8-9psi on stock internals

I dont own a turbo Neon, but I have a two different turbo'd platforms I can share. First, adding a turbo to a stock setup makes your engine a ticking time bomb. You're forcing the engine to do more than was intended for it to do. You haven't mentioned doing an engine rebuild, which is the first thing I'd do to make sure the engine isn't gonna explode on your first attempt to drive the car. At least put some ARP connecting rod bolts and head bolts on the car. You'll need bigger injectors and probably go with a Walbro 255 fuel pump. You won't need a dyno for what you're talking about, usually a pre-programmed chip is sufficient to help bring the bigger injectors/fuel pump/turbo all together to operate together in unison. And then of course you need to address things like the exhaust (which will need to be 2.0-2.5" min) and consider the stress put on the tranny if the clutch or torque convertor is able to cope with the additional stress and be safe to continually use and abuse.

Also, can I ask how much the kit costs and cost of install/parts/tune? And if the amount of doing this is past $4000, I would recommend moving to an (1998-2000) Z28 Camaro and just change the platform of power
