Pearl red, but only if you've got black or silver wheels. You might be able to get away with a candy, but I've only seen a few people do it right.

900 whp depending on the weather and how much your girlfriend weighs.

If you had done a search for "fat gf", you'd know this.

460cc should be good to 240whp with a greddy I think. The calculator is in the FAQ.

Are you using a rrfpr? Or is it the stock fpr as well?

More power than the puny little TD04H-15G turbo that came in your Greddy kit is capable of maintaining airflow to support.

The MSD box must obviously be removed, and preferably cast into a lake of flaming sulfur. The Vortech may be left in place, or removed at your discretion. Its presence will alter the scaling of the fuel map considerably, so you'd be unable to use anybody else's fuel map as a baseline.

I'm trying to identify the weakest link in your system to making power. I know of a few Greddy setups who've pushed the 250whp mark... but they had aftermarket DP's 3" DP's, headwork, full supporting mods, etc...

If you're still on the stock Greddy downpipe, I don't think I've ever heard anyboyd make more than about 180whp on one, that's why I asked for every single part. If you're on stock hose clamps and not T-bolt clamps, you'll be limited to how much boost you can run, for example.

Can you be more specific about your setup? Maybe some pics?

you should expect to run ALL OF IT. whatever boost your turbo makes, that is.

I've seen worse.
You've got some standard hose clamps on your charge pipes... will need t-bolt clamps.

Probably still on the stock Greddy DP, will need aftermarket drop-in version. I know a few places make them, but you'll have to ask/look.

Run a test-pipe, 3" exhaust, new fuel filter... install 460's and MS, run 14psi of boost for about 220-230whp.

Wait for clutch to fry and replace.

Wait for differential to explode and replace.

Might want a new fuel pump, tranny and dif fluid swap, and a new radiator... I can tell from the color of your radiator that it's about to **** the bed.

Enjoy.

See, there you go. Now I know that you live like half an hour away from me, and I can offer to come halfway out and take a look-see, or you can drive it up here, whichever suits you.

I'm not a member, but I run one or 2 autocrosses with them a year.
