I had heard of this build from ishanji and also had followed it when i had joined tbhp.when this engine was just plonked in stock.

what a journey it has been for this car.wow.from some 75-80WHP to 350 WHP and now that too will be going down the drain.as the car will put more and more power down.Wow.

especially the fact that you have different maps for different gears,fuels,driving conditions.Amazing.Also its simply amazing that you did all this on your own.amazing patience,knowledge.

Respect.

So, I had a chance to take this car out for a spin today. Two Words = MONSTER. INSANE!!! Believe me when I say this, no drooling over a dyno chart can tell you of what the power delivery is like in real life. It is outright SCARY. You will walk out of this car entirely unnerved......have to experience it to really know what we are talking about here.

Below 3,000 rpms, it feels like "just another" powerful car. The clutch takes some getting used to. It is hard, about 5x that of my diesel Jeep, and is basically like an on / off switch. However, 50 meters and I got used to it. Its pretty driveable in traffic...light steering and slick gearshift helping. Cross 3,000 rpms and you know this is a special car. She pulls strong and clean, until 5,000 when all hell breaks loose. Literally. Few cars spin their wheels in 2nd / 3rd / (possibly) 4th gear at 5,000 rpms but this beast is one of them. I could see fellow BHPians R.P.M. & Rehaan shut their mouths and hang on for dear life. The thrust you get is forceful, aggressive, and one is literally shoved back into their seat. We were overtaking a VW Passat, and its driver thought someone is braking (hence the tyre noise). Hell, he was shocked to see tyres spinning, but the car accelerating in 3rd gear! Short-lived joy though, as we didn't have a chance to go all the way up to 9,500 (though I am so looking forward to it)!

One thing : This car is safe only in the hands of an ace; Jitu was super calm when working her through the revv range. He's obviously learnt how to tame the beast. Butttttttttttttttt in the wrong hands, this car is a widow-maker. Drive safe, Jitu. Congratulations. The mega-achievement was written all over your face.

And I did not wait for a ride while be stood outside Blue Sea earlier this evening. Dang!
Jitu, its amazing how you have managed to come through this entire project. I have seen how emotionally involved you have been with the swap, and then the turbo. Kudos to you bro.
So when's the Speedrun eh?

Hard to use and very heavy to carry as well. Weighs like a ton. lol.

Congrats Jitu! Looks like you've set an example by letting your Dyno charts do the talking. Amazing effort!

O.T : When Jitu has managed 350WHP on a highly modified Honda motor why was it hard to believe Pete's Skoda was churning out 500HP or something close to that. Don't pounce on me now....I'm just thinking aloud. I think the lack of Dyno charts and wayy off timings worked against him.

Congrats again Jitu!! A perfect build according to me!!

Oh man!! Brilliant stuff Jitu! Epic!

Wish we could have more videos of the car accelerating from 0-100 or whatever is possible on the road!

I know it's a totally pointless figure, but what sort of top speed will this have? Above 250?
