Here are my graphs. Stock turbo @ 30psi.

Mods are Intake, UICP, TP, Cat-back, and GS 3-port.






Thanks Killmode! :thumbup:

You can get the HP a bit more up I think. But nice torque.

How so? Tighten the WGA?
That will just make you overboost and spike.

Probably needs fuel,timing,or MIVEC adjustment. Depending if there is knock or not...

What fuel? Please say something other than 93...nvm I see you are in the clouds.

Shell 91.
91 at 30psi...god son you need some oxy in your air! Down here at sea level we don't even run more than 28psi on 93... some don't recommend over 26psi. Must be the suck with more boost up front but dying out faster!

It runs great! Not a single count of knock or anything! We can get away with running more boost because we have less air up here.

Yeah, I know, I was just saying how it sucks to have it die out so fast though.
We might tighten the WGA and get it to hold better.

It won't make difference since the turbo is physically out of flow by 6000 rpm... what's the point of blowing hot air? You do realize boost is not the only way to make power in these cars. All that will happen is that you will have uncontrollable boost spikes...

Been there, done that. :duh:

Much better to get boost manageable and get your timing and MIVEC in a good spot. I dropped 1-2psi and gained a considerable amount of torque and boost control over running the higher boost. Hot air is well, hot air. :shades:

Pretty much... all that happens is your manifold temps go up since the intercooler is air to air and will only cool so much even if very efficient it will eventually heatsoak... Generally 28 psi peak is about the limit for the turbo... MIVEC,timing,fuel provide better gains in the HP area. Boost is great for torque numbers.

Any larger turbo just flows cooler than the stocker and produces more power...

Granted in higher elevations you can run a bit more boost since air is less dense... but there is still a limit.

I see it point less. Then to get...

UICP - response
3 Port - Boost management
TP - exhaust flow
CBE - exhaust flow
Intake - smoother flow / volume.

With those you max the stock turbo. I seen the range from 5000-6500 rpm. Depending on bolt on's.

Really at point no point wasting money on bolt-ons. Better to save for a larger turbo. Will gain more benefits. Then adding DP, Piping, Larger Intake, Intercooler, WGA, etc...

Can't make chicken salad out of chicken shit... once you are out of flow there is no magical way to get more...

i let the boost taper off toward the end since the stocker turns into a hair dryer in the higher rpms. We could gain some ponies with some fine tuning but i left it there since it is a capable powerband and i dont think the stocker is going to be on this car long. cheers!
