Default What is needed to run big power such as 350 or 400rwhp

Hi

I am wondering what modifications would be needed to run 350 or 400rwhp?

At the moment I have:

Greddy turbo
Emerald ECU
FMIC
550CC injectors
FM 2.5" Exhaust
Torsen diff + shafts and prop
Spec 2 clutch and 1.8 flywheel

I have the belfrab racing kit to fit to a spare engine and will be putting forged internals in.

I know the Greddy unit wont run much more than 250rwhp.

What is the exact needed modifications to reach 350 or 400?

cheers

question is not relevant to a educated discussion about turbocharged Miata Please discontinue asking these general questions which make no sense. Thanks

Also a good tip for you would be to research and search. Reading is useful in this forum.

good luck to you,

You'll need a V8.

short answer: none of your parts will do. Seriously. None of them. Except for intercooler if it is large enough - a FMIC could be the size of a waffle or a pool table.. way to be specific.

a human can produce about 1/4th a horsepower, so you're going to need at least 1600 legs.

You'd do well to get the Greddy to 250 hp, not to mention passing 250..

I say max out the Greddy, then re-evaluate your goals.

the belfab rods will hold.

Dude build up the engine to stay together at about 25-30psi. Maintain a decent A/F , ignition timing and EGT temperatures.

I'm going to try to make a meaningful reply here.

To the OP: if you genuinely want 400 RWHP, and this is for a street application, you're going to need a Chevrolet LS7 engine, a T56 transmission, and the differential and conversion kit of your choice. The Belfab parts and your spare engine, along with your current engine, transmission, diff and axles can be sold to partially offset the cost of this conversion.
