Sav, I just want to be clear on one point:

I hate you.

As a direct result of this thread, I am likely going to end up spending a hell of a lot more money on the new engine than I'd anticipated.

Just search for videos of STIs with external dumps. There are a bunch of them and they give you a decent idea. It's loud, like a car with no exhaust would be, but you have to decide how much you use full boost around town.

Honestly, there's no reason not to recirculate it. I just don't need to, so I didn't.

i'd probably go atmospheric dump just so I don't have to worry about overboost anymore.

Not what I meant. Just admiring the craftsmanship.

I'm having Hytech build a stepped primary big tube header just for my engine. Equally pretty IMO. It'll end up being the prototype of the production header for us supercharged and built N/A guys. Building a manifold using a Skunk2 B18 Honda piece, that's just about done. 10mm cams, shim under bucket. Built for about a 7800 shift point, capable of 8500 rpm.

The motor will have 11.0:1 pistons and a 37 lb/min Rotrex supercharger. N/A race motor style response and ah, plenty of torque. Which reminds me, I need to shop for a taller ring and pinion.

A local track guy guy running the same blower on his 325 BMW is getting 325whp IIRC. I'm aiming for an actual 250~270whp on the track, using a little bit of a restrictor in the Rotrex inlet. The motor without the Rotrex should be good for about 190whp on race gas.

Fixed for you.

I've been in a 400 - 500 hp Civic with an open WG, it was a screamer.

I rode in a 520 hp civic and as soon as boost came on instant loss of traction in 4th gear. Also anti-lag is loud as ****!

with VTA you're less likely to have overboost.

Long on this mani. Short on the BEGI/FM & MSM replacement.

Small EWG, high boost = win, so you're good. Are you using a 1 bar spring and then MBC to tune higher or multiple springs? Or starting with a lower spring? I have decided to go vbands, so I need to get my shopping list together.

why don't we need a support/crane for this set-up? I'm in a rock and a hard place...if I could turn back time I would have ordered this before savington.

I have a grip set-aside for this purchase.

Full-Race Motorsports Call us toll free at (866) FULL-RACE

Find me a braced tubular manifold on that site. It's schedule 40 stainless, not some cheap thin-wall ****.

Wow, second site I've seen ~mid $800 "ramhorn" style manifolds. Maybe I should do one? They aren't as good as the standard Absurdflow, but are a lot easier to build and if some girls are willing to pay that, wow.

I will never understand why a 71mm compressor has an outlet the size of my urethra. What is that, 30mm?

Damn, nice piece.


So it looks like the real solution to the stretching hardware is to replace with v-bands. I wish I had known this 2-years ago.

Oh well, see you bitches at the track.
