i installed the mazsport turbo kit on shane's rx8 over the last few days and scott was out here and tuned it.. at least as much as he had time for anyway. we're all hoping to get back to the dyno tomorrow for some more impressive numbers.
base run was at 6psi, untuned... forgot to print that sheet, but it was something like 286whp.
he got it to 304 whp tonight @ 8psi. a/f was nice, but the timing was SO conservative, i don't think you'd ever have to worry about this thing blowing up...serious man, this was a CONSERVATIVE tune! i saw it for myself.
we're all exhausted, and i've got to get back to work. so here's a teaser sheet, and hopefully we'll have something more betterer tomorrow
how often do you see a turbo car keep making power past 8k? that's the ****!

thank scott for the tuning. all i did was bolt it all on and hung out and pretended i knew what i was doing
Nah, I bet when he wasn't looking you were trying to take out the engine and port it right ?

wow - that's what I like to see. 300+ whp seems to be the magic number that will make everyone happy - anything else is icing on the cake. So now my question (im guessing this wont be answered till SS9) but how much did all this run you? A breakdown of total cost for the kit, the install, and cost of dyno time and cost of Scotts time would be awesome :-D
I'm no expert on turbos, so unfourtunatly I'll have to do pay someone to do ALL the work - but it's nice to know that the target can be achieved (300+ rwhp) and know that the engine is never going to blow up.
congrats! that dyno looks really good! the car most feel like a rocket
It is pretty quick, but I am still in grandma driving mode until Scott is done tuning.
As far as the power goes, what is scarey, is that at 6lbs with no more than 10 degrees of timing and a very very conservative fuel map, the car was making 299. Hopefully we can get more dyno time in tomorrow and see how it goes. Plenty of power left in that turbo though.
Oh... and Special thanks to: guitarjunkie - Sleepless Wonder Mechanic, now get back to work on my car!
