Something a little nos can fixTurboTurd said:ACK!
The car is making less than 200rwhp at 4,000rpms
What good is all this power if it doesn't even come into play for at least 6000rpms!!!!!
If someone could make 1000hp at 10psi at 10,000rpms and rev limiter was at 11,000rpms, it may be great dyno numbers, but what good is that for on the street?
It will? It's a totally different motor, turbo package, fuel system, electronics setup and driveline. This compares to a certain purple 3000GT how?Uhm. Wow. I guess this should end the debate on whether or not 560AWHP was possible at 18 PSI.
I've read that post too, funny thing is, when someone on the board, comes and says "I lost to a Supra", everyone believes him, when someone comes on here with something different and never shown before, who are the first to call BS?omnip_1 said:I was reading the post regarding "AAM'S 560 @ 18PSI" and there were multiple people saying "NO WAY THEY CAN MAKE 560 @ 18 PSI... PERIOD" A 3L engine is an 3L engine, maybe differing volumetric efficiencies, but this shows that it can be done with a 3L at THAT PRESSURE.

If you are at all knowledgeable on the ways of the 93-98 Supra TT, you could easily compare horsepower levels to CFM flow to get some type of idea on what a car maybe able to achieve. For example, a Supra that we have done a single turbo conversion on using a T04R kit on which is rated at 1000 CFM @ 15psi. This car created 525 RWHP at 21psi on 93-octane and a whopping 650 RWHP at 29psi on 116 unleaded. Now, take the AAM TDO5 Turbo Kit on my car. Each turbo flows well over 650 CFM @ 15psi, which combined makes 1300 CFM @ 15psi. Thus, I think it is very reasonable to see why my car is able to produce 562 AWHP at 18psi of boost. Additionally, my experiences with single turbo conversions on the 94 and up Supra have revealed there is a lot of horsepower to be gained above 20psi on large turbo applications. Therefore, just like a Supra the more boost you throw at it, the bigger HP levels you will see!
Case in point, I had the pleasure of racing this particular car on the road, he happened to be an old roommate who for the entire time that I have known him talked about as much shit about my car almost as much as some people on this board. He claimed never in a million years any 3000 could ever beat a Supra. I was convinced some day I would make him eat his own words, and I did! I am happy to report back after 3 separate 3rd gear runs I was able to pull him by about 2 cars at the end of my 4th gear so we than decided to go from a rolling 1st gear run do to the fact it would be unfair AWD versus RWD from a dead stop and the results where even better due mainly due to quicker spool up time and the torque that my car makes down low is much more than any Supra that I know at those boost levels. The sad thing for him was not only did a 3000 beat him, but also I did it with less boost than he was running.
