for the mods i have is 376.7 bhp good power at 1.6 bar i have 3inch exhaust walbro /forge actuater /and 3 port soliniod the mapper said he could have got more boost but the clutch has never beeen changed and at 45000 it wasnt worth the risk it feels good on the road and the turbo should last bit longer at 1.6 :smthumbup:mitsi:

Nice power from the 9.8 housing. On dastek?

Dyno figures get hyped up to much with so many variables - it's more how the cars drives on the road to me,that matters

As said above peak power figures can be misleading and hyped, it's the area under the curve that's more important.

i would say it means a car/graph that peaks then drops off would be less rewarding on the road than a car that peaks at a lower figure but holds it to the redline,therefore having a larger area under the graph,power/torque lines :smthumbup

I'll get a graph of an IX that was mapped today, it had a cam change but the difference in the area under the curve was massive.
There are lots of graphs floating around and it's amazing how they can be manipulated by changing the axis scalings to flattern and extend the curves;)

thats good, my 260 had similar spec but also hks 272 cams and made 399.bhp so not much difference (mine did over 35 thousand miles with that spec on std clutch)

My Evo 6rs is at 380 bhp at 1.55 bar
So you should be fine on an 8 engine
