you'll be able to make 170rwhp with 1.8 injectors and a 12:1 FMU on the stock FP. At least I was able to.

it's really all in the math. 80psi of fuel and 265cc injectors = 198BHP

yeah but you have to be getting enough air in there to mix with all that fuel, doesnt the cfm capability of the turbo factor in there somewhere?

well, regardless if you are reaching 170rwhp at 4psi or 8psi, the injectors will be capable of supplying enough fuel.

ok.. so since my compressor is smaller than say the 15g turbo that comes with the greddy.. whats the real world differance.. will it just get to a point and stop making boost? like get up to psi, and not be able to do any more.. from what i can tell by looking at the map it should be at like 60 percent efficency at 6500rpm 8psi.... this sound about right.. ??

You will blow hotter air sooner like bripad. This is a trade off for your low end boost response at 230<- whp it shouldnt be alot of difference but the extra head room of the compressor does help not heat the air as much. For example my 16g had as much flow potential at 8 psi as the 15c at 15 psi but i only used so much of it.

yeah as far as what your motor is ussing with crazzy ported heads and high dollar ignition **** you might use most of the available flow but i doubt it matter alot, just try to get it as cool as you can without bogging it on the low end.

yeah, i got no crazy ported heads or high dollar ignition... The way i see it, if the 2.0 engine on the eclipse ran with this turbo, why wouldnt my 1.6??
