I agree with Mike. although my car has water injection, it made 305 hp to the wheels with it turned off with piss poor 91 octane pee water gas.psshhgoesmysr20 said:I beg to differ on a stock de motor you can hit 300+ hp as long as you have the fuel to back it up, you dont need water injection, that is simply just an added safety feature. Personally I would stick with the DE because I like the higher compression, but to each his own. Remember the stock DE can handle 400 hp on a stock bottom end with high octane.
A BB DET does not have enough turbo to make anywhere close to that much power. The T25 is much too smallSE-RMadness said:Well, I'm looking for way more then 300HP so I guess the BBDET is the way togo then. What would I need for the swap?
Too many questions too answer here. Search the SE-R mailing list archives for a lot of answers. There are a whole bunch of parts that you'll need. As far as not running anything more than 91 octane... well then you'll have to decide how much HP you want, and that will decide for you which kind of engine to install a turbo on. if you want more than 300 HP, and you're not planning on replacing your internal engine components, then I suggest a DET. 300 wheel HP on a stock DE will be detonation city.SE-RMadness said:I had plans on a T28. BUt I know a BBDET holds a Turbo better the a Regular DE it's why I was looking more into the BBDET but the Bolt on Turbo seem so much easyer and I want more HP With the least Engine Problems. And I have NO plans what so ever to be running anything over 91 Octaine. What do water Injection do? Would I need anyhting more then the Engine to have the Swap done? Like extra parts? Where would I get the Clutch from and other needed parts? I'm a Person who like to get things out of the way in one shot.
I dunno, I like 305 hp on the street!SERprise In WV said:Here's my .02, for what it's worth...
Rob Cadle told me the T28 would do as much as I cared for on the street. IMHO, he was dead-on with that. I cannot imagine 305whp like Mike dyno'd on the street. It would just be too much in a FWD car, from what I've experienced.
Thank you much, Mike. But let's be serious for a minute. Other than freeway bursts (which are highly addictive, I must add), how much of that 300hp is *really* needed/used on the street. Stop-and-go type traffic.morepower2 said:
