I went to a dyno 30 miles north and spent a good part of the day there. Great guys. If you need an excellent dyno around the Chattanooga, TN area, go to "Cleveland Performance" in Cleveland, TN.
Did 12 pulls, made changes in-between on my laptop to the PiMP. In my case this took the car from being 95% correct, to 100%. I can't drive at full boost and tweak what VE isn't able to tweak either at the top end.
Anyway, I hit 332 hp/347 tq...and their printer stopped working...seriously. One of the guys pulled a .bmp file and emailed it to me, but I can't make out the numbers. SO...I can post any of these dyno's building up, but not the final one.
I will give them a call about getting a copy of that final dyno in a version that I can read - (DAGNABBIT!) but great as they are, none of them knew what I did about 'puters and I don't know much...
Thanks Stinger and Wes, that's with a 22-23 lb initial surge then settles to 18 lbs of boost. My turbo is just to small now for Bo's Stage 3 head, BUT your PiMP is the stuff!
Good to hear! That's a fair number for that boost. There is probably another 30-40hp in that setup at that boost with some advanced tuning though (dialing in timing and such). I know you want "safe" more than "maximum numbers" though.
Is this a 50 trim turbo? If so, it can support 400-415rwhp when maxed out. I've seen the same setup as you with a 50 trim make 424 rwhp at 22-23psi when tuned to the limit.
There is probably another 30-40hp in that setup at that boost with some advanced tuning though (dialing in timing and such).
I would rather stay conservative, plus w/ the new turbo coming, I'd have to make micro changes again. Ya wouldn't know the timing wasn't perfect, it is strong! Thanks for that info though.
I do not know the specs on the turbo installed. I've had it for 6 years I believe and they are somewhere recorded in the paperwork I maintain on the car. I don't remember a 50('s) number...but never quote me.
This is one Charlie at Evergreen built for me and it's been excellent. I've got boost at 2000 rpm and it climbs superfast. W/ my stock head I'd ported I was running 25 lbs of boost w/ plenty of reserve left for future boost - ha.
David, basically the setup is Stingers front mount, Bo's Stage 3 head/2.5 cam, adequate fuel, 80 lb injectors, the aforementioned t3/t4 and the (AWESOME) PiMP. I've made a jillion "mods" but those are the key pieces. I have a photobucket page which can help you see where the car is today: s1234.photobucket.com/albums/ff417/JamesPrice3/
If it's a turbo from Charlie then I'd agree it probably is maxed out for the most part. It's certainly not a 50 trim as Charlie likes to use the old "B" wheels that were designed in the 50's and 60's for some reason.
