new member s2 turbo

Post by donger » Tue Nov 03, 2015 10:17 am

just added a turbo to my s2 rx8, it is a wolf in sheep clothing ! I only had 119kw atrw before the upgrade now 225 atrw . has anyone else checked there power on a dyno? I was shocked by the lie of how much power it had , maybe it was measured at the flywheel to make it easier to sell ? do all the car companies do that? see you on Sydney's northern beaches (metro grey s2) or on the creek on the 1st of dec (drive your car on the track)

All manufacturers power figures are engine not wheel. 20-30% losses through the drivetrain are pretty normal.

I'm curious what boost levels you are on for 225rwkw.

garrett 35/62 I think, boost starts around 3000rpm and power stops around 7500rpm .

On a Series II there were some issues a while ago where the ECU would see too much airflow at the MAF and go into limp mode.
