How long is a piece of string? I think the answer to your question is £££|EQU|BHP, chuck enough money at an engine and just about anything is possible. I know of a certain 1.5 litre BMW lump that can put out over 1500bhp... http://188.8.131.52/graphics/wink1.gif border|EQU| 0 align|EQU| absmiddle >
The JUN car is certainly the most highly tuned Evo I've heard of, but then they are well known for taking things to extremes. Up to about 370-400bhp and you'll probably still be on your bank manager's Christmas card list, to get much more than that requires serious £££, i.e. the cost of the car again in mods.
My car is standard and really slow! Estimated 300 bhp, warped discs and no front camber. But dead tires.
Please dont get me wrong, I told you about the JUN Evo because I saw it in a German magazine and on JUN's web site. My local Japanese tuning parts dealer told me it was measured 598 bhp at the wheels in Germany, then they put the catalyc converter back in and changed a few things for homologation purposes (this was for the Sport Auto Tuner GP) and got 510 or 530 as mentioned in Sport Auto (German version). I also talked to someone at Ralliart Germany who has been in it. The car has a T088 and lots of lag up to 4,000 rpms. After 4,000 rpms, that's another story...
Roy Boy's car puts out a lot of power with a bigger turbo (2835 or sthg), right?
Have you had any problems maintaining power or with detonataion. I only ask as there just doest seem to be all that much cooling for your car for 420bhp?? The HKS intercooler not being that much more efficient, etc.
For the moment, I am only adding an ECU and monitoring equipment engine wise.
Where I live, there is a lot of twisty roads, so I cant use a car that starts going at 4,000 rmps.
To make it faster around these roads here, I get the best suspension set up and brakes.
350 bhp or around that value should be a pleasant drive. If it's really still slow, I will get internals and a bigger turbo, but ideally I wont.
The JUN Evo has between 650 and 700 bhp at the flywheel, that's what Junichi Tanaka told me. He should know, he works there. The power depends on boost settings. JUN make their own parts, Bozz just get pistons made and bolt on HKS stuff. I dont find that impressive. I emailed Bozz about how much their pistons weigh, never got a reply. JUN pistons 476 g.
What car have you got? You talk a lot about high end tuning but I am not sure you even have a driving licence.
got the impression from the first posting I saw, but then again, you never know, there are a lot of people here, one in particular, who sound like school boys, you cant really tell, intelligence is not related that much to age...
