Hey cool man, I'm about to turn 21 as well. I've had my car since I turned 16.

Isn't it amazing how much we seem to have done already? Not just with cars but with life?

If I was that awesome, I wouldn't waste time on this ******* board. Let alone driving. Where could I possibly have to go?

With his 6spd and 4.1FD I doubt he sees any <4.5krpm on track.

dynapack and dynodynamics read 12% lower in my experience. Everyone keeps comparing paul and artie's dyno to this one and mine...after you factor in the 12%, it looks like we're hitting a wall somewhere. There is definitely a wall and its not the turbo, not the housings, not the exhaust, not the manifold...I wonder what else it could be?

Maybe not fiberglass, but there's carbon-kevlar scuba tanks out there. Just get one and put a TB and some runners on and... oh baby.

that could be a function of his EBC tables, we need to get him rocking a good mbc.

Matt,
Variable intake geometry is where it's at. Ok, so the stocker's are restrictive being designed for 35 hp/cyl not 80...

Absolutely, there's a flow issue. One could certainly buy 3 more MAP sensors, put one on each side of the intercooler, each side of the throttle... I guess you don't even need that, just some jars filled with water like a El Cheapo carb balancer... You should be able to pick out where your losses are.

Obviously you could machine out your TB or just put a mustang one on as a place to start. If you don't see a big improvement you're barking up the wrong tree.

The obvious other place to look is head work - that's what the non-turbo world does when they want more flow. Certainly my car was a lot stronger with it than without.

Nothing wrong with a little pride. I like setting the bar higher for myself.

If one has an intake manifold with a mustang TB flange, it should be very simple to make an adapter plate to bolt on a factory TB to see what harm that makes. It would have to be done at the dyno day, cause no one is going to pay for a dyno session to see what the loss is going to a smaller TB.

I think Travis was talking about it on a m.t thread which I did not subscribe to, lost it. Anyway, the idea would be to raise the boost level at higher RPMs to offset the torque loss due to high-RPM flow losses, and flatten out the torque curve. With an EBC (and enough turbo overhead) this is pretty easy to do. I had been wondering about this approach myself a few months ago.
