How Much Power Am I Making And How To Get To 300Bhp...
Posted 09 March 2012 - 12:03 AM
I would like to know where im at right now, and wondering how to get to 300...
I understand the limits of the tranny and will definitely increase the fluid changes.
I was thinking of an 18t with sconeman's tube and an ebay FMIC.
Before shelling out more i would like to know how much more the GLT rods can take. I am assuming they are weaker then the t5 rods, but im sure someone on here knows for sure.
PS. I'd love to know about any other quirks that would make tuning the GLT a oh yeah!.

And that's before you take into account the tire characteristics...

I was thinking 18t and a Blue tune.

Wow, complicated stuff. Thanks, learn something new everyday. How would an auto work on a dyno? lock it in 3rd?
I'm honestly not sure, never been there when someone's dyno'd a slushbox... logic tells me 2nd is the easiest to lock it in and use, but I don't know for sure. But ya, that's basically how drivetrain torque multiplication works.

I would like to hear from someone who KNOWS the rod strength. no offense....but its my rods. oh yeah! of all bitchs to replace.

Op, you're going to be somewhere near (approximately) 240-245 wheel or around 275-280 crank with your parts at that boost level.
Gear doesn't matter on a load cell type of dyno...so it depends what style dyno you have access to. I'd recommend 3rd with the auto. Doesn't accelerate fast enough to present traction issues, and speeds stay manageable at redline (under 130mph). Converter locks up by 55mph and you can roll on to full throttle there.
18/19Ts on stock blocks scare me...its a funky turbo. The smallest exhaust turbine and the largest compressor possible in that turbo family. Spools faster than the rods prefer. Safer to run a larger turbo and deal with a little lag. But, with supporting mods, pretty much anything 18T and up can produce 300whp/345 crank or so.
855 Turbo Automagic :: T3/T4E .60 + E85 = fun!
4 gears, 5 cylinders, 7 seats...13 seconds.
