Hey guys I don't post here much but so far I am completely happy with my car.

Been driving it on and off for a few years and finaly did some upgrades this spring. 3inch downpipe and exhaust, Y8 ported manifol and ported gsr throttlebody. Didn't do a whole lot except screw up my tune HAHA

So I finaly got it tuned and had mitsubishi injectors put in yesterday. Well anyways it is incredibly fast and only set at 11 lbs of boost. I think that greddy downpipe was really holding it back.

Unfortunately the shop that did it doesn't have a dyno so I don't know how much it actualy did. But I have to think it is pushing close to 300hp. Spun the tires at 80 in 3rd how cool.

So I am wondering how much horsepower other people have gotten out of a greddy turbo?

is it possible to hit 300 with the turbo that comes in those kits?
this is what i was kinda leaning towards from my first comment..

reminds me of some kid i seen last night... intake/exhaust pontiac sunfire (pretty much a cavalier)... "how much power u think ur makin...?" - "oh about 200 to the wheels...."

..but :TU: to the built block

haha now I really want to dyno it. It made 220 at 10 lbs 2 years ago when the motor was built up. I guess although it's not raised up much in boost the turbo it able to push a higher volume of air. Getting rid of the elbow from the turbo really did help.

But yeah I got to dyno it some time.

I'm just curious because I have heard so many people say you can only make so much on this turbo. Really like to find out how far people have been able to take it. Or am I going into uncharted territory???

If your running the TDO4-15G it is only capable 300hp according to greddy anyway and that figure isnt to the wheels either. I have heard that you can usually plan on an extra 10hp from each pound you turn up the boost. Dont know that I agree with that personally I think setups vary too much for that theory to apply. Mind you its just my opinion but I wouldnt hope for any more than 240 to the wheels

220-240 wp Just my guess what kind of tuning are your using?
Hondata
NRG did the tuning and it runs better then it even did. They did a great job.

RPM did the tuning before and it farted and poped and spit out black smoke. :sadface:

so you gained 80 whp from raising it from 10psi to 11psi and taking off an elbow?

before this turns into arument, just dyno it and show proof, I dont think you are even near 250WHP imo.. Do you even run times @ track? That would help.. What do you have done?? Name your built motor..

I only really autox so technicaly more power then I really ned anyways. But it can be fun to mash the pedal on the hgihway. But yeah I couldn't do a drag race launch to save my life.

No way was I looking for an argument. Just looking to see how far others have been able to push a greddy turbo. So technicaly it really doesn't even matter if I even have a honda in real life at all.

I do get annoyed when people read half a post then throw in there 2 cents. But what ya gonna do it's the internet. And hell even I have done that HAHA

But yeah I will hopefully get a chance to test it out at a dyno day near me soon.

did you get rid of the greddy elbow? how did you do that? that is the biggest restriction in a greddy turbo kit. also if you did get rid of the elbow, did you keep your a/c?
