that sounds right i would expext 330whp plus on 16psi my local tuner up in louisville said the 2871 could run 26psi fine i couldnt imagine that much boost lol scary

so i put my new gt3076r on, and the car is literally out of control! it makes no sense! and its only on 12lbs for now! made 260hp with my gtir t28 on 9lbs and now this thing is just plain loco!

Sounds like you need a Quaife HLSD differential

o no, the lsd is kickin in and holding strong, just that the car pulls way harder then before and the psi im running isnt even tickling that turbo yet...lol.

out of curiosity do you have yourbintercooler pipings bead welded only reason i ask is because i could get one good dyno run on high boost with the 2871r wheb my intercoooler piping wasnt bead welded biggest boost numbers i seen without having the pipes blow off was 13 lba just curious though

never have i had a pipe blow off.

bead roll is a must or at least the ghetto bead roll(jb weld)
2010-03-31 23:31:37
no its not at all. Worm clamps and straight pipe with hair spray all day
2010-04-01 00:33:27
the hair spray is a good idea never tried that but itbis a must for high boost on the bead roll tip

on a side note where are some engine pics
