    Horsepower!?

    I have an 02 bugeye (ej205) with the following mods:!Catless up-pipe, Catted 3in. down pipe, Full 3in. exhaust, Koyorad radiator, Samco intercooler hoses, Emusa turbo inlet hose; Running 16psi with stock turbo on an unknown tune.


    Would anyone like to venture a guess as to my wheel horsepower?

    No, because you don't know what the map looks like. If it were the stock map, I'd guess around 200 HP.

    Very difficult to say.

    If I were you, with an "unknown tune," I would want to have that facet of my car checked out.

    I understand that the tune is a large x-factor, but I think 200hp is a low-balling it a bit. From what I've gathered, they put 200 to the wheels stock. The car runs excellent and shows no signs of a lean condition which leads me to believe its a good(I'm saving up for an accessport anyway). Does anyone have a similar setup with figures?

    Get it dyno tested if you really want to know.

    If I had the money, or an awd dyno in my area maybe I would. I'd just like to know if anyone has a similar setup and knows what kind of power it's making.

    Probably 210-220 WHP on a dyno jet.

    my 02 made 180hp at the factory tune on a dyno dynamics. Stage 2 with KN intake, samco y pipe, 3" turbo back exhaust and a protune from Bobby at PRE made 241hp/250tq on the same dyno.
    Find a low-mileage one-owner unmodified '04/'05 and you're golden.

    Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall.
    Torque is how far you take the wall with you.

    You're thinking of the STi, which has a larger engine and a larger turbo.. they put down ~200-205whp stock (depending on the dyno).

    Lol @Donkey. It sounds like the tune makes all the difference. I've found an unmarried cobb accessport on craigslist for $300. Is Cobb the way to go, or are there better programs for the money?

    Well.. OpenECU is free and does the same thing.. so I would say that's better for the money.
