Do not do this and in fact do not run that amount of boost PSI with stock engine parts
A turbo C6 Corvette undergoing testing on a chassis dyno when the stock intake manifold exploded & flames erupted from the engine.
The explosion was strong enough when a ball of fire shot out of the turbo porting & started burning cables hanging on the wall.
It’s mentioned after the incident that this C6 Corvette was claimed to be running 26 lbs boost at 5900 RPM & was recorded at 1356 hp before the stock intake manifold blew apart, dumping the fuel into the engine and causing the fireworks. You would think they would have video recorded clearly showing the results
