HOLY **** you're putting down 350 whp with 205s? I'm having trouble putting down 200 on the miata with those, and I'm running WAY stickier rubber than Neovas, AND I have rear wheel drive.

Buddy of mine who drag races says anything above 250 whp on a civic hatch, you're looking at 245 or larger street rubber for even halfway decent traction. And that's on a hatch which has a more favorable weight distribution.

Ananth, There's a space limitation on an OHC Wheel Well, it cannot accomodate more than 205 width, i wanted 225 minimum but that doesn't fit, 350 is at 17 psi that doesn't mean i will be running that kind of boost in 1st & 2nd gear. i have setup boost according to gearing & RPM.

Thanks mahesh, the car is still not ready the way i want & i am in no mood for any kind of publicity as i build this car for myself, may be later down the line later but not now.

Yes I understand the boost control can be controlled by gear. But you wont reach 17 psi in second or first anyway because there is lower load on the engine.

The point is, this is what you need obviously. a discreet set of fender flares:

Not that I am technically very knowledgeable, but flared arches will certainly help accomodate wider tyres, but possibly one would need a negative offset rim, right ?




Cheers

Awesome dyno graph, awesome car. Mighty congratulations to you.

Also, i have seen people running 225 in front and 235s in the back in lancers without any flaring done... have u tried fitting in some wider tires to check? I think City should accomodate 225 with just slight rolling in of the fenders inner curves.

Was in Pune when i got the news. Had half a mind to take the next bus to Bbay. LOL

350bhp@9250rpm is insane. Do post the dyno chart for the latter.

Until then, i'l be more than happy drooling over the 318whp version.

PS : I think its time to take your mod to the next level and give us the first AWD OHC!!!

Jitubhai,
I am in complete loss of words. When you come to Shivaji Park next time (you were there today), I am going to beg like crazy till you take me for a short spin.

Jeetu,

This is un frigging believable. 350 whp from a 1.75 literwith pump gas? Wow

Hats off to your dedication and patience.Next time I am in Mumbai, I am earmarking a day to come and see your car in action. Hope you will be free then.

Vijay

Hi Jitu,

First and foremost, congratulations on the first major milestone of the epic build. Was following it through various stages via various sources over the past years. Doing something of this magnitude in India isn't a joke, given the fact that it is a complete DIY project.

That apart, I would like to know a few harmless details about the setup.

1. Are you using any form of auxiliary injection (water/methanol/toluol). Is it via calibrated jetting or is it EMS controlled?

2. Is it an internal or external wastegate setup?

3. What cams (brand)? Or have you retained the stock cams since they tend to work well with forced induction (at this level at least). You have mentioned upgraded valvetrain components, what is included in that.

4. Is the crank COMPLETELY stock or has undergone balancing?

5. Are the driveshafts stock?

and if possible, what kind of AFRs you are doing at WOT.

Thanks and hope to see your car soon at TN.
