Default Guess my horsepower?

Okay, just wondering what you guys think my horsepower will be? A little background, mods, and previous power levels.

This was my first car, got her for my 16th birthday. Went through several stages, to where it finally is now. Currently looking to do some body work and cosmetic upgrades such as 6UL's, Carbon Mirrors, Carbon Trunk lid w/duck bill, and front lip.



My previous set-up made 380/300 @ 25 pounds of boost, these are my current changes I made to my car:

OLD VS NEW
OBX 264/264 Cams 9MM lift-- KELFORD Turbo 272/272 10MM lift
Stock Intake Manifold -- Flipside Custom's manifold w/70MM TB
60-1 .48 Journal Bearing -- PTE Billet 5857 .63 Hotside Ball Bearing
ETD Shorty Manifold -- ARTech Ramhorn Manifold
2.5/3.0" Downpipe -- ARTech 3" turbo back downpipe
Ebay FMIC -- ETS Custom FMIC 3.5" Core
2.5" IC piping longer route -- 3" cold side, 2.5" hot side short running

With that being said, I am getting the car tuned this Friday at Sound Performance, I changed from AMS due to wanting my car done sooner. Sound Performance is well known in the Supra Community. The car will be tuned at 20 Pounds of boost on 93, and next year will be stepping up to E85 for real power numbers at 30-35 PSI

Hopefully this will be the highest horsepower 1.6L B6 in the Country/World? (Documented of course)

Impossible.
The turbo is just TOO BIG. It will never spool, and everybody knows you make less power than naturally aspirated when youre lagging.
What he needs is a gt2554, thats the best turbo for the miata.

you should be able to hit 600 with that turbo, but to take advantage of the billet wheel your going to need to run more than 20psi.

my buddy has that turbo with a 0.83 housing or something weird on his 1jz and he made 400hp at 22psi but the rest of the engine was factory... he ran out of fuel too.

those billet wheels are meant to flow crazy amounts of boost (you should be aiming to pressurize your engine to 30-32psi)

at 20psi i can see you making 398whp and 272 ft lbs.

You should have gone with a JRSC dummy.

it will generate tons of heat and make no torque and always be lagging.



what you need is a FFS thupercharger with a 5th injector and a hyper reroute

It would be pretty cool to see you break 500hp once you get E85. I am guessing 450/350. IIRC Eliminator from m.net went from 450 to 490hp at 28psi on a 1.8L with just adding a 3" exhaust and a short runner manifold... and that was before he changed the stock cams. Can I watch?
