Ok all u turbo junkies i need some help... I've been on a mission 2 boost my zx3 but in new at this...I've got a godspeed t4 hybrid...all the goodies for it, intercooler,piping, have hks gauges, aem wideband air 2 fuel, 60 pound injectors, Kenne bell boost a pump,diablo mafia with ported maf housing, crower stage 2 cams, fidanza cam gears, cometic top end and bottom end kits, supertech valves, crower springs and retainers..255lph pump,spa manifold with 3 bolt 35mm wastegate, cfm 65mm throttle body, sctxcal3, blowoff valve, all the feed lines fittings catch tank oil separator and alot more mods...the problem is in 7000 in this already and the car has 150,000 on the stock bottom end.

255 pump will not work in the stock tank with out running a full return system. the stock returnless system pulses the fuel pump and that will mess up the gears in a standard pump

all that money you spent on the cams and head should have been spent on a good turbo

How much is the restless system and what turbo would u suggest

focused0713 02-11-2013 10:00 PM

Return full system

Only lookin for 250whp right now could i just stick with my stock pump and BAP get a better Turbo and achieve this with what i have?

stock pump and bap will work for that. but like tim said you should have used the head money for a good turbo. a nice 48mm precision turbo costs like 575 bux

If i invest in new turbo what is a good starting boost for my setup and any tune suggestions...i have the sct but im sure i will still need a custom tune...what is hp potential on stock pump and BAP

Yes you will need a custom tune and I can help you with that , stock fuel pump will get you to 250 with no issues as long as it is up to the load , meaning the pump , sock and filter is in good working order

Tom how do i actually go about getting a tune from u and what kind of money am i looking gettin into almost ten grand for 250-300hp cause i don't think a motor with 150,000 can take much more than that and im not ready 2 build

ZXthrizzle05 02-11-2013 11:17 PM

toms tune is great and it takes steps to get perfected. he will give you the $ details but being a customer myself I am very pleased and will allways give you free updates if you add a mod or up the boost
