Holy lord what a setup. HKS GT turbo, the best one for our motors, brand new
FMAX tubular manifold, divorced TIAL wastegate, 72-lb injectors, Quaife
diff, SMC BABK, Motivational suspension setup, all kinds of internal work...
what ELSE can you do to it? =)
What kind of output do you expect out of this setup? The major differences
between this setup and one like Jay's ex-car and Ryan Besterwich's car is
that you have the GT turbo and tubular manifold. How much power do you
expect with the same setup as Ryan had for his dyno run on the SE-R.net
page? He made 392hp at 20psi, C16, and H20 injection. Maybe 50 more hp? 80?
Man, if there's anything else, I don't want to know about it.<font face="Verdana, Arial" size="2">what ELSE can you do to it? =)</font>
It's hard to say. I believe we can get over 400 HP out of it, possibly up to about 430. I don't believe we'll get much more out of it than that, because the turbo becomes inefficient after thereabouts. While the GT30/37 is a fantastic turbo, it's not the most powerful one out there... Shaggy has a bigger compressor wheel than I do and will always make more max HP than I will.<font face="Verdana, Arial" size="2">What kind of output do you expect out of this setup?</font>
yeah, it's my daily driver... and believe it or not, traction really isn't a problem as of right now. I'm only running at 10 psi, and I have some leaking going on that I'm trying to track down and fix in my engine bay. So it's not as fast as it should be really, and then I also have the Quaife LSD, which I believe honestly helps a lot. First gear is still kind of useless, but I just don't boost in 1st gear. In second gear I have very minimal traction problems, sometimes a little spin and some hunting around, but it's generally manageable.<font face="Verdana, Arial" size="2">is the car a daily driver? How in the hell do you get traction?</font>
Well as you can see in the last pic I posted, and this one below, I don't have any hoses out of the top of my wastegate. Just two hoses, one on either side of the wastegate. They go to the In and Out fittings on the boost controller box. Hope that helps.<font face="Verdana, Arial" size="2">Where does the hose on the top of the wastegate run to?</font>
