Hey, just a question just for the fun of it...

If I was planning to make 380-400hp, what setup would you recommend?

You can se my currently setup in my sign. Other than that im getting Crower camshaft, Crower valvetrain, AEM camgear, 3" DP, 2½" exhaust (yeah know its not big enough for so much power), Better fmic and 2½ inch piping. What more would I need?

Im planning on running a GT2860.

And yes its a streetcar.

bigger turbo

3" exhaust no cat

save your money on the cam and cam gear

prolly need at least 15lbs of boost. i dont think it can happen unless you have very deep pockets. good luck

fuel/bigger turbo/more boost should get you there. upgrade your exhaust & downpipe.

3" dp should be enough. Im running on 97 octane (dont know what its called in us sorry). It should not be a lag machine, dont a gt28 spool faster than a t3/t4

yea, gt28 spools faster than a t3/t4, but it also cost alot more.... you should be able to run a lotta boost w/ 97 octane (our premium gas over here is 91-93 octane)

Well gt28's usually go for around 800$ (mildly used) here in DK, so not that expensive

How much psi do you think I would need, and how much can my build take?

Thanks for your answers so far...!

Don't forget a stronger clutch, bigger tires and an LSD gear.

Otherwise it's just a way to make your car smell funny.

Actually i think my exedy will hold up. otherwise I will find a 2platet when my exedy starts slipping. Tires, im in love with my yokahama paradas, but toyo a88 also sounds good !! is it a must with lsd?

Bizzar on here is making around 300-350 whp or so with his and is running 20psi, a lsd will def be a must if you even want to consider getting traction. The obx isn't too bad, I've seen them for around $400 shipped on ebay.

A GT28 should get you near your goal, but you may want to consider a bit larger turbo to hit those numbers.

too small for a 380whp app.
