    Crank HP I can see, wheel HP............not so much.

    Post dyno graphs otherwise I think their is a little.......................involved
    I agree dyno's would be nice, but it isnt impossible. We dont know what year his civic is (looks like an EP3 in his avatar), and we dont know his mods besides its boosting. There's a 06 Civic Si making over 370whp on clubRSX.com on boost to the wheels.

    I dont think he's taken it yet. Tuned in November. He's got a ton of $ in this car, and I dont mean "show parts."

    I have absolutely no reason to lie about my numbers, and in my first post didn't you see the part please don't hate? Geez I feel like I am back on honda-tech.com. Thanks for the welcome!

    I didn't want to start a pissing contest, just wanted to introduce myself but since you started it...

    http://forums.evans-tuning.com/viewt...ghlight=custom

    ... the graph shows 272whp, this was after it made 275whp and we de-tuned it to stay on the conservative side so my bad. I also ran a 13.2 and street tires and have a video of that if you don't believe me

    Could you tell me where you pulled that number from? Because I think you are pulling it from no where, where as I just posted my dyno sheet along with my set up to prove my numbers. So if you could knock the BS of that would be great, thanks.

    And its an EJ6, even though the avatar's head lights kinda make it look like an EP3 now that you mention it. I dunno why, this forum is kinda weird, but i posted the dyno info up and its not on this page and I don't see a link for page two. O well.

    Figured it out, it was on hybrid mode, this forum's format is kinda strange, more tips are welcome w/o the BS!

    That is the most retarded thing I have heard today

    So if the car is making 370whp turbo'd, that means it makes 300whp if you pull the turbo

    Yeah, and those Large-turbo supra's that make 800whp make 500whp without the turbo

    And what a surprise! This coming from an 06' owner

    First off I miss read 275 WHP for 375whp, which 275whp I can see and negates my initial suspicion my bad.

    Well you must know an awuful lot about motors gee wizz I wish I knew as much as you

    What I know is when you take an NA designed engine and retrofit a turbo or any kind of FI without changing the internals (ie stock cams and pistons), you see gains between 40%-60% at boost levels between 6-8 PSI. Sorry that would be 220whp NA not 300 oops.

    Now a turbo Supra isn't exactly an engine designed to be ran NA is it. And you wont make 800whp on a supra with stock internals and head sorry to disappoint ya but lets compare apples to apples.

    Sorry I own an 06, If it makes you feel better I also have an 02 Bugeye. Does that make you warm and fuzzy?

    Oh and WELCOME!! Their is a ton of good info on here about WRX's as well as DIY.
