oh i'll try to make this short and to the point.. if a turbo's sweet spot on it's comp. map is around 450, with the right tuning, the right amount of fuel, a volumetrically efficient head, and the right accesories, there is absolutely no reason that number cannot be achieved.Caymen said:Just because a GTR turbo will support 450 HP does not mean at 20 lbs of boost, I will get 450 HP. Jesse's EGT was dead on my calculations when he and my buddy in a Nitrous ZX2 with a 75 HP shot of nitrous raced. The ZX2 has 130 HP and you add the 75 HP shot, you get 205 HP.
next, nitrous is measured on a chevy 350. that's 5.7 liters. your zx2 is ROUGHLY one third of that, at 2 liters. now, with a 75 shot, that ROUGHLY translates to a 25 shot on a 2 liter motor - then you account for drivetrain loss. when it's all said and done, i doubt a zx2 with a 75 shot would even put an extra 20hp to the ground.
but i'm real dumb. you've been into escorts for years. you win.
