Wow. I did not anticipate such a sweet custom setup. Very, very commendable!! Great job on the setup so far. I'm impressed with the stock bottom end numbers. Very happy to see that.

Just a couple q's...is the car tuned for 93 octane at 13 psi? Any dyno sheets for 13 psi?

As for the 8 psi dyno, I'm just curious as to why the curve seems to be slightly decreasing as the rpm's increase. I would have thought the GT28R, along with your head setup, can keep the curve linear up top. Not that there's anything wrong with it because it still is impressive.

Also, do you have any other pics of your turbo setup by any chance? I'm very interested in seeing more of it. Great job on that.

It has not been re-dynoed. I have the 55# injectors and it runs pretty good. With the way it was tuned, I should be safe. Again, no chip and just letting the pcm do it's thing. I will get it redynoed, but it's winter here and the car is put away for now. She is tuned for 93 OCT.

The engine was set up to push 12-13 psi. But at the tuning, we couldn't get it to hold the pressure. Wastegate problems. You can see where the wastegate blew wide open when we hit past 8 psi...

Stiffer spring and we played with shortening the controller's lines and everything is fine. She holds a steady 13 psi. I'm pretty much at the limits of this turbo, but then I have no plans to take it further.


I'll try to get a pics of the turbo, manifold, wastegate and DP that I took when it was outside while I was building it.

I like your car and love your style. This may not be a fair question, but have you put a dollar value to your mods?
