Starting to look good, but it will be your turbo and rpm limit that becomes the bottleneck if the quest if for higher bhp and you really want to get the full use out of the parts you have installed (276 cams, big valves, fuel system aso).
You dont happen to have a dyno plot from a "dynamic sweep" rather than the static point to point one?

Btw is your car with auto transmission, or coverted to manual? The first picture on the Maptun site from your dash indicate automatic.

Holly crap That looks insane!

Will it actually fit back into the car when you are all done?

I can't wait to see the final product.

That's not his car; he had his engine shipped to them from Taiwan. I guess they put it into a mule in order to tune it

The site showed an older 9-5 sedan, grey not blue and in this car the DI cassette is not yellow as in the pic.

Very impressive. We'd love to see the whole car together. The extra large tires, body molding kit, and all. I have seen parts of the car in different areas of your blog.


Also, just as a side note, in my old job, I visited Taiwan at least half a dozen times a year for about 5 years. I wish I'd know about your project then. I'd love to have seen the car in person.

What size Garett turbo is that. Comparable to GT35R? This will be a solid motor due to its size providing full spool at around 3500 RPM and hopefully revving past 7000.

This is just an educated guess but...

I am thinking a 35 will not generate full boost at 3500rpms AND rev past 7k. I have a 30'76 and do not generate full boost till 4k.

I would say low 4k on full boost and a low to mid 7k on redline

bear in mind that you're looking at STATIC dyno results, meaning the RPM was locked in each measurement point, so the turbo has "as much time as it needs" to build up the boost. On the road though rpm climbs as soon as you open the throttle and if not in 5th gear and driving up a very steep hill... So in other words on the road for instance in 3rd you will newer see turbo fully spooled as low as the roto graph reads. Depending on the size of the turbo the difference between roto and road 3rd can be >500rpms.

My guess of the turbo is a GT30R, close the GT3076 but comprssor slitly different.
