Tom, please help me clarify few things regarding your turbo for SVT

Tom, would you please help me clarify few things regarding the full turbo kit for SVT model.

My goal is to make around 250hp to the wheel on 91 octane gas. I live in California, the highest octane is 91. How much modifications would i need to perform on the follow components?

Engine internal

--

Transmission

--

Exhaust

--

clutch

--


suspension

--


I understand the full turbo kit comes with a tuned chip. Is the chip as simple of just plug
and play? or would I need to ship the car to your shop for tuning?



Thanks in Advance Tom...

****The problem isnt can the kit do 250HP at the wheels all stock the problem is i dont feel it is safe doing it on 91 , The most i have pushed on 91 is 200/200 and that is as far as im willing to go

Engine internal
****If you were to lower the compression of the SVT engine this would help with being able to run more boost with lower octane but when you lower the compression you lower the engines ability to make good power at low boost its kind of a trade off

--

Transmission
****Mine is all stock with the exception of a Quaife

--

Exhaust
****I have a 3 inch Exh but it isnt a must

--

clutch
****My SVT has a Clutchmasters STG4

--


suspension
My SVT is all stock

--


I understand the full turbo kit comes with a tuned chip. Is the chip as simple of just plug
and play? or would I need to ship the car to your shop for tuning?

****I wish it was as simple as plug and play , I feel i can get real close the nice thing about the predator is it can scan and datalogg and you can give me feed back to what changes need to be made and i can email them to you and you load the new tunes

Tom, is bottle neck on HP just the 91octane gas? other than the gas octane, the SVT engine should have lot more potential, right?

On your web site for the SVT kit, its making 239whp on pump gas, is that on 93 or 100 octane gas?


would it be a better investment to turbo a regular zx3 than a SVT?

Thanks Tom!

Yes Octane is the limiting factor with the 10.2 compression of the SVT

The 239 was on 94

I would say stay with the SVT

Tom, how did you get the car to run 239whp? is the only difference is the gas octane (91 vs 94)? What other mods did you have to do get to the car to run those numbers?

thanks again for your insights Tom!

239 was done on a 94/95 Octane , Octane is the ONLY limiting factor , If we had 110 octane STD that we could run 20PSI on the SVT all the time and make 320 at the wheels

A Predator comes in the SVT Focus kit
