muneris pro ego
mere 12 seconds? thats pretty damn fast to me... considering ive only owned a sixxer, a 4cyl accord, and a minivan
Usually people swap the turbo but leave the internals alone. The rods and pistons are forged and the crank is a pretty heavy duty unit, the general consensus is 400whp is the limit on the stock internals. The Holset HX35 unit is the most popular swap for unmodified bottom ends and the HX40 is more popular with the guys making serious power on built bottom ends.you keepin the turbo stock, or will that be changed soon as well? you gonna do any internals changes?
You will probably be happier running ~16psi on a Garret T3/T4 50-trim or Holset HX35 than 22psi on the stock T3. But if you start kicking the boost to that point you will really want to port out the head and switch the cam, not really a heavy breathing engine from the factory.The stock turbo can see 22psi with basic fuel upgrades so we shall see. Some of the SVO internals are forged already. If I end up hurting the motor I will of course rebuild it as strong as possible.
For not though I will leave the bottom end alone.
Don't say that, your 4-cylinder car is easily capable of embarassing most 5.0 foxes and even the 4.6L cars for half the cost of their mods. The Lima turbo is one of the best 4-cylinder turbo motors to build up, it can be powerful for cheap and is bulletproof as long as you don't do anything stupid with the mods.err.. I mean it is just a lil 4 cyl car.
