Default PSA for MSM owners: Your turbo is too small


The IHI is just super tiny and doesn't want to make any more than 190 wheel horsepower.

This is basically just me showing off my Borg Warner EFR 6758, but it really was the best decision I made for my car AFTER putting in a Megasquirt. A MSM with a stock turbo and a MSQ is still a damn good car in my opinion, just not beefy enough for my tastes.

Also on that note, anyone want a MSM turbo?

MT doesn't allow the sale of animal excrement.

Can't break more than 190hp? Sounds like a tuning problem.

I hope you have a built motor. That 6758 with a medium wastegate spring can bend rods at wastegate boost pressure

I do! Manley rods, Supertech pistons, oil pump, ARP studs all around and all the other stuff you have to do to not explode a BP.

I've just got to modify the manifold I made to fit the V Band of the Borg

Probably pretty close I'd guess...
