Leave it to a Honda guy to figure full spool at 5K rpms isn't bad.

Yah man, you got it. The real hard people who are here do a custom B20B swap with 18C head into our miata's. Custom log manifold with GT40, 4" downpipe, with direct exit. Screw that exhaust ****. Hondata OBD1 ECU, and that **** is insane.

You should implement DEI. Direct exhaust injection routed straight into the interior. Its the new ****. spools tanker turbo's as if they're gt17's

i figure when revving out to 9k isn't that bad if you ask me no it's not the instaspool that you people maybe after for the road course or autox.

Problem is at the Honduh fanbois forums this kind of ignorant question is asked and answered on a daily basis. Other forums pander to this kind of ignorant thread instead of stopping them dead in their tracks as should happen. Do we need to be nicer to noobs at times? Absolutely. Do guys like Weepymanch need a fast hard dope slap? Absolutely.


Want a serious answer? Stock motor, tranny and rear end gets very iffy past 250hp. Some guys make up to 300hp without trouble but others are breaking stuff at 200hp. Why do people use the disco potato and other small turbo's? Because they are appropriately sized for those power levels.

Any other stupid questions answered thoroughly and repeatedly on this forum you want to ask?
