Has anybody hit 400hp on a non vtec set-up? Had me wondering. I was going to go for it over the winter. Right now I'm at [email protected] on a 57trim T3/T4 on a y7 with eagle/vitara combo. I was going to get a bisi cam and upgrade the turbo. Thinking about a SC61 and turning up the boost. I actually have a z6 head at the house, but I'm going to be stubborn and go for it.

Anybody on here by chance over 400 w/o vtec? If so what turbo and how much boost
its not hard. just use a ported y7 head with a good cam and youll get it no problem

i don't think i've ever seen anything over like 150~160
i am pretty sure DarkCreep was refering to bisi with this one.. bisi doesn't use vtec in his set-ups.

Has anybody hit 400hp on a non vtec set-up?
as far as i know, no. but they are all close. mos don't stick with it or do head work. they just keep cranking the boost. if your going to go for the big numbers, get a big cam. just make sure you follow up the big cam with some good head work.

From what I've been told, you have the highest HP non vtec SOHC setups. I was actually searching for your user name this past weekend. A few people wanted more details on your setup.

Hey greg, do you sell a turbo thats about the size of an SC61? I was looking at your site and saw the T3 60-1. Anyone with a D you know that's running one?

i think if you switch to a cast manifold if your worried about AC or something better you will see a pretty decent gain. The SS log like you have is a really nice piece but only so far. Id also look into a bisi 1.2 cam for no/minimal head work or a 2.4 for a worked head. With the cam alone you could probably see a really nice gain.

VTEC only gives you so much man.

Whats the highest HP achieved with an N/A D16?
Without using Nitrous of course.
coming from a guy who needs other people to make him a list on what to buy for his car STFU. you got a lot to learn before you make suggestions here.

Seriously, SOHC VTEC only does so much.

But prove me wrong, one way to learn.
trust me i don't advocate vtec lmao. vtec is overrated in the sohc world and im not going to explain myself when there is mountains of info in this site. vtec is all about preference in the sohc game in my opinion. there are many pro's and many con's of vtec and non vtec set-up's. if you still don't know im not the one to teach you. im just not in the mood to spoon feed you any info at the moment.
