So I have been happily boosted since fall of 2007 running a BEGI S1 kit with an SR20 T25. At about 9 PSI I was making 200hp and 200 ft/lbs of Torque with the following dyno.
I was extremely happy with those numbers, but I wanted my car to become a track *****. After all the people complaining about studs stretching I knew that V-Bands will be in my future. Unfortunately to have fun with V-Bands you will be pushing at least a Disco Potato to 15PSI, which makes stock motors go BOOOOOM. So I decided time to build a motor and get that out of the way before I send Tim my bank account numbers so I can have some Absurdflow GODLINESS.
The plan for the built motor is something that would reliably run 350hp on the track and not blow up. I honestly never plan on running above about 250hp, but I wanted the headroom for the safety margin.
The block is from a 94 which brgracer hooked me up with. The crank is from an 01 motor that I got from Y8S I decided that I would go with a VVT head to eak out a little more power after seeing what Y8S got on his motor with it. I choose to go with a 99 IM with VICS because from what I have read it flows a bit better then the 01+ IM. I will also be upgrading to a 2870 ChinaCharger for the time being until I can afford a real Disco Potato
For engine management I will be running MegaSquirt 3 in standalone with Kevin's VVT controller. My car will be getting tuned by Jerry down at DIYAutoTune and I will be shooting for 300hp at the wheels at around 20PSI, or whatever power I make around 20psi.
