Well, 50/50 on success. here are the numbers:

These are at the wheel:

152.5 HP = 180HP crank assuming 15% drivetrain loss
253.8 Ft/lbs = 291ft/lbs at cranck assuming 15% drivetrain loss

Judging from the graph, it runs RICH!!! I have some some boost creep issues, due to maxing out the actuator. The boost hits 8psi then falls off to 5psi after about 3000rpm. So Monday I pick up my manual boost controller, and we are going to swap my stock ECM with the TGP ECM and put the TGP ECM/Chip into my car. Also, new clutch, the stock clutch does not hold all that torque very well, it slips in 4th and 5th. That should solve the HP loss. But in all the torque numbers are great and I am satisfied with the results. Videos will be posted in a few, we are currently capturing it on the computer.

Well factor in the 3 missing psi and the rule of thumb generally is that 1 psi = 10hp. So add 30 hp to that, toss in a new clutch and I bet you'll see that the clutch is slipping more than you thought. You'll find all that HP that's MIA right now with those MONSTER torque figures.

Edit: Holy crap I just looked at your dyno graph and you are running WICKED rich. Lean that thing out, shoot for a flat 11:1 a/f then lean it out til power doesn't go up any, then turn it back a little to be safe.

From all my new turbo Neon buddies, they say 12:1 MAX A/F ratio. But I understand it's different with every car. And what cam are you running?

What type of turbo did you use? Did you do the installation yourself? How much did it set you back? With those kinds of numbers, I've taken back almost everything I've said about tuning a small engine like the 2.8 :oops: Wholy christ, that's definitely worth it if I ever get the money to do it.

You blow away any 5.0s with that? Any Z28s? They'll never know what hit him when you suck their door handles off! :p :lol:
