No one has done it yet in the community at large. There was a SEMA show car by vaccar that was turbocharged but tuning was not available at the time so no one really knows if the turbo actually was functional. Roush toyed with a TVS900 supercharged Focus Stage 3 package at one time also for SEMA. Roush did not put the kit into production. Too expensive and less powerful than the factory 2.0 L EcoBoost GTDI engine for the Focus ST.so then will the n/a 2.0 handle boost.. is there a supercharger kit for the 2.0
Cobb tuning was familiar with the Mazdaspeed3 already and were trying to build an analog test mule for Focus ST development iirc. The MTX75 has been used behind the Noble M12 and other cars with twin turbocharged 3.0L v6 engines making over 300 hp but the differential would need to be changed and a few other parts along the way for that application.why did they choose mazda trans. is the gear box stronger..
i was asking the dyno for just general numbers because it give in site if this is the best way to go(too me it seems like it is) some people just want proof rather than old fact not a lot of people will buy something unless it has been confirmed or tested these days. i just wanted to see if there was a slight hp gain because if there was it gives proof that there is more torque and hp hitting the pavement.
Good to know the manuals at least have something to use, dct are another issue altogether.
The capability of that trans is not important to me the stock mk3 ones are, if those have any good possibility might as well test it out, if i had enough money atm to buy my v6 engine swap and knew i had all the part i would push my tranny to death to learn the limitations..
I'm pretty sure there are numbers out there from Getrag that show their rated limit for the DCT is around 185 ft/lb... But that could be very conservative or not, I don't think we know yet... There are a few highly tuned NA cars using it past 185 lb/ft, but not by much... I could be wrong, this is just from I've gathered here following various threads over the last year.I know there are some problems with the DCT but aren't most of those because of bad seals and programming? I would say at this point it is a complete unknown as to whether the standard OR DCTs will handle more horse power. BTW doesnt Lamborghini use a dual clutch system as well for their "auto tranny"?
Next Gen Gallardo get dual clutch - Lamborghini Forum
