That is me. I ran a 16.1 that day. Before i killed a piston, i wound up running a 15.9 @ 84. However, that was on a blown headgasket. I later ran a 5.0 Mustang and had to coast, but still ran a 16.3. That run probably would have been a very low 15 @ 89+. I believe Swift13b has made over 130whp on his, however his is fuel injected. On mine, which is a TBI, i made 94whp on 8psi, with a major boost leak. I'm betting had i dyno'd the car when it was running correctly it would have been around 100whp on just 7psi, comparing how much quicker it was since i dyno'd it.

P.S.-I'm selling that ENTIRE turbo kit (turbo, downpipe, manifold, intercooler, piping, BOV, FMU, filter, and oil filter relocation kit, for $900. The only thing you would need with this kit is a different fuel pump.

mid fifteens are incredibly fast for these cars, all i have to say is a very good job done. looking to build a tube chassis for my vert, making a jig right now, have a 2.0 dohc 4G63 mitsubishi evo motor, its built right now to about 570 horse at the crank, had it in my talon awd and was runnin 9s, but thats also awd, but that car was nearly 2000 lbs heavier too, i guess if i was gonna build my G10, it would have bigger heads, a forged rotating assembly and throw a good twenty pounds through it. just trying to see if anyone else has done it, or has enough experience to know if the lower end would hold up, being a three cylinder id look, I'm retarded have to get someone REALLY good at balancing a crank too, dont know, need something runnin tens or better, i mean im not afraid to pioneer it and make the first three cylinder to do it if nooone else has, but some records need to be set.

It's the word filter.

I ran 25 psi, no problem.
Extremerider ran 35.

Can't recall what his times were, but I did 14.9 at 15-18 psi on a pretty much stock turbo3.
The motors are stout and will take a lot of boost, RPM and abuse.

i have a question for superf1y, what engine management were you using to control detonation? any cam work or head work? forged internals? injected or tbi?

It's the car in my avatar.
Stock turbo 3 with a mild cam, which made a HUGE difference.
Extra fuel was supplied by a 5k pot on the coolant temp sensor, triggered by a pressure switch.

look at my sig, ran high 14s not pushing it too hard, almost hit the 100MPH mark. it's around 23 psi right now, can't seem to get more from that turbo with such a small TB. I didn't take it to the track this summer yet, I made a record pass in march (it was still winter lol :lol: ) in 40F weather. I do use a standalone engine management system

if you want a 10 sec car you should be a little more realistic and look for another engine :wink:

i know for a fact my team could easily make one run in the twelves, its not impossible. tens would be quite a challenge, but i believe its possible, the weakest point i believe would be the transmission, but with as light as these cars are, you can make a very satisfying hp/weight ratio, and as long as you can put the power to the ground, theres no reason it cant be done, possibly a rwd swap? just looking to see what everyone else is doing with these, im gonna try for it, and if it cant be done, ill swap in my 570 horse 4G63T, either way, this vert will see tens.
