Default what to expect with base Greddy and a BIPES?

Hey guys doing a lot of reading here lately, will probably be a few weeks before installing the Greddy.

I am just curious what I can expect from the stock Greddy with a Bipes?

What is the base WHP and roughly what should i have at the wheels after install?

Also has any one put together a website or anything that shows the different stages of Greddy?

Thanks

80-90rwhp bumped to 120-130rwhp.

my faq pretty much spells out what you need to upgrade, just not greddy specific. since 60% of the members here run the greddy, you should have no trouble finding out what you need.

Or....if you've got one of the imports you can expect a jump from 128-130 up to 160 like me !!!!

But I don't have a BiPeS......just the standard kit with tweeked wastegate.

Thanks Braineack,

Sounds good, that is 30-50 more hp. looking forward to feeling the boost!

What kind of 0-60 and 1/4 times roughly? before and after?

I have gone through your FAQ's too, good info, thanks....

Why don't you do the before and after times, and tell us?

That is a good idea, maybe I will. All I have is a stop watch though so wont be too accurate...

Someone on here broke a 14.5 on a base greddy kit. One hell of a time.

You can expect a slippy clutch if you beat it a lot. Mine is finally giving up the ghost, but I give it a good lashing every once in a while.... okay, a lot. I bought a 1.8 flywheel and getting a street/strip clutch soon. You can also expect a little steeper oil usage. I almost ran my pan dry on accident this year.
