oh snap 395whp on a stock motor! Damn, your doing somthing right.

But 2640lbs with no driver seem's kinda heavy for such a small car.

Haha... or just trying to blow the motor Which isnt working

2640 is pretty heavy. Stock it is 2520, with the turbo kit, motor swap, and all the stuff I have added I brought it up to 2640.

Its still got a full stock interior with airbags and stereo. There are people who strip these out and can get them down to 2200-2300 lbs, but to me thats totally not worth it. Ill make some sacrifices at the strip before I make them on the street. Id rather just make a little more power and make up for it... haha

Well thought I'd give it the bump. Some updates:

I did blow that motor. Not terribly though. 5 bent rods and 3 broken piston crowns anyone?




Ive got another stock motor in there now. 175k miles on the clock and making more power than before. We'll see how long it lasts. I've put around 15k on it now...

If it's untuned, how were you getting away with 91 octane and that much boost? Stock compression ratio? Stock timing? How are you controlling those big injectors off of boost?

It was like 10 degrees total timing under boost and pig rich, sub 10:1 afr. I don't consider that tuned, at least not in the sense of a good tune.

I have megasquirt'n'spark to control the injectors. Itll still pull 30 mpg at 75-80 mph on the interstate if I stay off the throttle!

thanks. yeah, i bought the car with a stock 1.8L V6 and a thrown rod. The 2.5 v6 out of the probe gt/mx6/626 bolts in and thats what i have been running since i bought the car. The GS is the V6 model, and theyre hard to find. Even harder to find a 94+. The 94+ has an awesome interior compared to a 92/93. The 92/93 is fugly and Id never own one for that reason...
