My turbo is somewhat similar in size to what he was running and Im at 25psi now and theres no way in hell my car is making 400rwhp. Fail dyno chart is FAIL.

I cant go any high power wise then what i am making now as I cant turn the boost up anymore and my injectors at 25psi are at 89% duty cycle at 7300 rpms.

Im hoping 350 with video proof and that should be sufficient enough for me.

Dude with a racing seat and harness like this, you can make any amount of power you'd want.

Lol, no need to get all defensive. The car did what it did, get over it

You should change your location to Greece

Leatherface your car is sick and I really give you props on holding together a stock motor so long at that hp. I'm not sure that Rics car was really posting that kinds of #s or not but we all know that every dyno's numbers are a little different. Keep up the good work. We should all give ric some credit considering that car was put together over 6 years ago.

So 25psi+18*+???afr= 340whp?
you are on 92oct correct?
What are the AFR's? mid/high 11's?
Also what are you using to monitor/detect knock?

25psi + 18* 11:5-8 afr = Im guessing 340whp. I say this because Ive done the math before and for each psi I was making 6.32whp. I was at 19psi in this video (boost gauge said 21 but verified it was less with the hydra. Since then for some reason it works fine now).





Im using 93 octane. So figure 6.32 x 6 = 37.92 + 311 = 348whp - a bit for the exhaust and thats where I get my guess from. Im using the MSM's knock sensor with the Hydra and its been working perfectly

I should say that number is based on going to the same dynojet that I went to in the video above

took out the red suede cluster hood and put in a black one and i also took out the carbon fiber gauge bezel as it started cracking and looking like a crusty *******. I sprayed the gauge surround flat black and oddly enough it made a huge difference that I really like.

I've got access to a dyno I could donate... but I'm guessing you aren't coming up towards east TN. Although, a US-129 (the dragon) run in that thing would be a blast, and very terrifying all at the same time.
