Are you mistaking the black Accord to be a Civic? If you are, the guy is claiming 2 bar+ Why would you doubt it? He had issues at the Speedrun though.

hey ported..ye sorry that's what i meant..accord..and yes inspite of that i still find it very tough to believe that the car's running on 2 bar's of boost..i do realise everyone goes through issue's while tuning and testing..at times even during racing..but if you seriously put a lot of thought into it do think 2 bar's of boost would be attainable on that specific car..people if you'll could give out your opinion's..Jignesh back me up here..hehe..cheers..happy revvin..!!

Hey Nikhil,

All of us in the real world here in Mumbai know whats going on and who is doing what and saying what. No point commenting on fantasy when something is real I will comment otherwise once again people will say I am cribbing.

Viper

PS - For the record he had blown his engine 2 weeks prior to the race as well was running around looking for forged pistons. I think he is the same tuner who is based opp Gold's Gym Nepean Sea Road.

I am running my car at 18 PSI boost... Earlier before remapping, the car was running at 10 PSI.. now with the ECU map changed I am getting 18 PSI.. We tried working at 21 PSI but there was mis-firing since I yet have to install a bigger Intercooler.. Once that is done the car will surely be running at 21 PSI...
Cheers

whoa,,,
Sounds interesting how much is approx HP increase at 18Psi & till what level can stock internals handle? are u using stock injectors at 21Psi? have u tried plugining the sparkplug gap to check for misfiring,and last question when do we see it in action? in nxt meet???

Default Re: Turbo Facts - How Much Boost In India?

Lexus V8 (1UZFE) eninge transplanted into a e36 with x2 rear mounted GT3540's with 2x GT I wastegates Hks converging into 1 intercooler with a SARD BOV <hks BOV lost a gasket due to operator issue used a the back up SARD> 15psi boost. Adaptronic is completely stand alone ECU. 950cc injectors and 400lph pump, steel braided lines. Oil cooler etc etc. everything is all forged pistons crank. Stated on the net that the engin stock an handle 50psi but with all the added forged internals must do better.

Now at 12.5 psi here is what i get is it worth puching it further.

Adding the second pic of the dyno runs

AFAIK we could hit about 1000hp mark with 25-28psi of boost. Any comments....
