[DMCForum] Re: PRV forged internals



I wouldn't go so far as to say super PRV as forced induction prepped
PRV. I looked at the extrude website, that could be useful but it
would just be the equivalent of port and polished at the end of the
day with more strength. I'd rather pursue a forged internal solution
with forced induction at 15psi/1bar. I've read that both Renault and
Peugeot used forged internals in variations of the PRV in the 80's
with single turbo applications and Renault I believe using the same
block and head we use. I'm willing to order the parts from the UK or
France if needed "if even possible."
