Damn my hats off to u killer, I just got the greddy sp2 exhaust for xmas from my girl and relised that it was quiet due to a silencer in the mid pipe, I just had a quote today for header back stainless steel exhaust 2.25" $300-400. And hes going to hack the 2" off the muffler to get rid of any restrictions. That price doesn't include the cat I have to buy. I plan on going with the greddy tc with there intercooler and eventually after that find a set of heads and have them reworked by a local shop that does great work for a great price. I was just wandering what I could expect specially with the auto trans.
All really boils down to design. Never (unless a major difference in tuning) will two turbo kits running identical psi be too far off from each other. For instance, it would be impossible for 1 8psi turbo to produce 105 and the other 8psi produce 140whp without there being a nice list of unknown mods.Really, I was hoping for mid 14's with the auto trans I thought someone on here had a greddy kit running low 14's. Are we the only ones with autos that r turbocharge or going to be turbocharged? Now did u do the work urself or did u take it somewhere? The thing I don't get about the different kits producing different hp gains is 8psi is 8psi so what r the differences in the kits allowing the zpi or the hks to run smoother?
Its flywheel (crank) gains, not whp. 50% of 80whp (stock for autos are between 80-86whp) is 40whp which would put you at 120whp, now the problem with this is not many companies advertise "correctly"..This is based on perfect, ideal conditions.Wow, I'd say the #'s from my limited experience r pretty close the kits I've looked at say a 50% gain which should be 140-150......but that could be flywheel gain and not whp. I'll have to do more research my buddie that used to woek with me and older guy is an airflow engineer by trade and used to work for Carol Shelby back in the day now he reprograms nav systems for Mercedes but he knows alot about turbos and I gonna get him to tune it for me. I may even contact turbonetics and see if they can give me some ideas maybe to piece together a kit. Who knows def want a turbo
AEM makes a stand alone for our box?em cai, jic exhaust, custom 2.5'' piping to axle, aem standalone, aem map sensor holding up to 3.5 bar, aria pistons, custom port and polish job, regrind cam, hks gauges, hks gt2510 t3 turbo and gt2 wastegate, dc sport header, 103 octane gas (when dyno'd), custom intercooler, custom motor mounts, perrin fuel rail, 370cc injectors, custom rod, and then a few other little things.
200whp, 12.5psi, high 12's low 13's with slicks and race gas.
I calculated what all of the mods my old car would have been if the manufacturers claim had been right. It was about 465 REAR WHEEL hp on a car with ~299 rwhp stock.Yeah thats the problem now a days u can't expect professionalism from companies they claim certain #'s that r not attainable under normal conditions. I guess I'll just have to research more. Now for the front mount intercooler I was thinking about getting 1 of those universal piping kits cause a guy is giving me a intercooler of his honda(he had it on there for show still has the end caps lol) how'd u pipe urs?
