[quote author=Colza link=board=GEN;num=1094014232;start=0#11 date=09/05/04 at 15:46:39]I think there may be some creative rounding in there.

City = approx 800 mayby 850 for T2
2G civic = 800
1G civic = 680

hey just outa interest, we took pgnutas t2 down to the weigh bridge, was 780kgs complete with massive sound install!!
there alot lighter than 800kgs eh!

putting a mr2 front mount on it supersonic blow off and duel stage boost controler and kand n filtir got a 2and a half inch stainless steel exhaust with high flow cat. Took it 4 a spin last night the first time in the car f**k its quick


If you have done all of this and get that intercooler in then you should be able to run 15psi fine on the stock engine. You can run up to about 17psi but that is really pushing the envelope on running lean.
The oil catch can is kinda unnecessary as citys pretty much dont chuck out any oil like other Hi-Po engines do but i could be a neat looking addition to your engine bay. They help a bit when your running higher boost thou cause when your engine coughs up oil it is passed from the rocker cover to the intake and added to the mixture to reduce emissions. Adding oil to the mixture reduces the effective octane rating of the fuel and can lead to detonation but as i said not really an issue when your only winding in a few more pounds.

In a turbo engine you pretty much want to reduce restriction before and after the turbo, before it you want the biggest and shortest concievable path to cold air coming straight into it and after it you want to keep the path as straight as you possibly can and use pipe that has about te same inside diameter as the inside diameter of the turbo outlet. You loose some boost for ever bend you put in the pipe. You could also add something like a water spray to your cooler for a bit lower intake temps, or have a less restrictive one of those right angle bends the air goes into the engine through, the red thing, made up. Basically if you want to improve your power, find out the smallest  constriction in the air's path and remove it, if you do all that i just listed, after that you would have to start maybe filing down the centre bits flat in your throttle body or having it opened out a bit, just the big hole dont bother with the little one. Also improving the flow after then engine is good, a nice smoothly made mandrel bent dump pipe goes a long way for performance, the best way to do it is to have your exhaust shop get a new flange plate cut for the turbo and to have about a 2.5" or 3" dump welded up to the flange. If your mates with a fabricator or have some more money get them to make it a split dump, separate the flows from the wastegate and turbo and then either dump the wastegate to the ground for a screamer or plumb it back in after about 40cm of dump, all this increases flow speed and reduces unwanted turbulence.

if its completly stock 15 would be fine. mine hits boost cut at 16 but that easy enough to fix if you want more.

Traction is the big problem. With our Civic you get a lot of power steer in 1st at high power output and despite the rather large tyres the wheels spin quite easily -  and the set up is simply a fairly nicely ported top end, balanced engine with Nugen bolts in big end, high tensile studs in the head and an equal length exhaust manifold sriving the Garret GT17. If you had enough horses to do 12s I suspect you'd need seriously overwidth tyres - and would then need more horses to drag that weight along.

But sounds like fun trying!
