· 400whp club here I come!!
HT MR2 Turbo
I dunno.... the only SC'd V6 Cam i've ever heard has sounded pretty damn sexy. Much better than my 3sgte I must admint
The burien kit with an intercooler added and good tuning ran close to 215whp on stock 5s internals. With proper tuning the engine is entirely capable of this goal.UfoZ8myCow said:first off... say bye bye to 87 octane fuel... with a turbo you need minimum 91, but i would recommend 93 or even higher if you can find it.
secondly, your gas mileage will suck ass. its a fact of life that with more power comes less fuel economy. this becomes especially true on a forced induction engine. itll burn your fuel hotter and faster than stock.
thirdly, 200whp is a pretty lofty goal with stock internals on a 5S... and it especially wont happen with your stock exhaust on there creating waaaaaay too much back pressure for a good turbo system. if you are going to spend the money on a turbo kit, why leave your stock exhaust on there? might as well go all the way and finish the whole package... youre gonna need at least 2.5" piping and a good free flowing cat to get thing working well together. to hit 200whp, youre going to probably have to run higher boost than what your normal internals will be able to handle, ie, if you want more powah, get forged internals.
You Cali people and you're stupid Smog laws:lol:Robert M said:and i see that you live on oceanside, so i hope you have or can get a hookup for the smog test because you wont pass with the turbo on there. you can go to the smog ref and get it passed but that cost money and you still have to be within the limits allowed for your car. but if he sees something he doesnt like on your car he will flag it and youd be screwed then.
True, but if you want to save gas,t hen shifting at 2k rpm will still keep you out of boost. No car(well the VAST majority) is going to be making significant boost levels at 2000rpm.UfoZ8myCow said:If your turbo doesnt kick in until really high RPM, you have an improperly sized turbo for a street car. Who the hell wants to drive around town at a constant 6000rpm?
