my first pull was 268whp and 280ftlbs tq. second pull made 275whp and 296ftlbs tq
my third and last pull is the one posted and reads 288whp and 281 ftlbs tq but it spun the wheels a lil bit so if following trend then the tq should be over 300ftlbs! im very pleased with my ka-t!

LOL yea i had to fax to scan the picture and it came up crappy. im runnning a stock ka24de homebuilt log style manifold external wastegate, 20g turbo with a hahn racecraft 10cm2 housing. sti 550cc injectors, one step coler ngk plugs gapped to .035, stock ignition, distributer set back to 13 degrees, and safc, fmic this run i started at 13psi and bumped it to 14psi and thats what i got. :inoutgay:
these pulls were made with an exedy oem replacement clutch 2yrs old and not slipping....yet

A tune would probably help. But pretty good numbers. Stock engine?

Yea stock engine 160k plus. I'm only running a safc and I got it tuned off of that but it can't control my injectors precisely (flow 605cc @ 4 bar). timing is way retarded and its a stock auto ecu so next will be a good management setup and a good clutch should help even more. Very crude setup lol but it works and cost me less than half an SR swap. :laugh:

Maybe its the turbo making the difference as well though. At 10psi I have pretty close to the same numbers as you and have 20-30hp left in it due to the rich JWT tune.

13psi+ on stock engine scares me as well, I won't take that chance.

haha yea i was skeptical of goin above 8psi and then i bought a boost controller...... and now its at almost 15psi lol my clutch really started slipping this weekend and im wondering if it was slipping on the dyno...im running 93 octane. what kinda turbo are you running? is it just a stock motor?

I've got a GT32 turbo and yeah stock motor with 85k miles on it. But its a '95 engine with S14 cams still.

Anything over 13psi has blown at some point I believe, be careful.

well isnt it not so much the psi but the total airflow? i mean if your motor is making about the same hp at 10psi and mine is at 14psi doenst it mean that the cfm goin into the motor is about equal regardless. i know that any amount of psi goin into an old stock motor isnt going to prolong it and im definatly not expecting this motor to take 15psi for the rest of my life. just curious :confused:

Yeah, may be do to that air flow then, just normally that 13psi is the fence line.

Good numbers! You can definitely get more out of it with a tune, you'll be able to sleep more peacefully as well knowing your motor won't blow up due to the safc haha.

lol I ran a similar setup for a while, mod'd stock injectors,retard,and afc 18psi. For 2 weeks but I went back to my 370s till I can send off the mods for flow testing.

Get it tuned on a rom or something you will be much safer.
On my personal tune I run 12:1 afr in boost.pump gas. It helps average 18ish mpg. Plus out of boost the car feels flat due to no timing in it. You know.

Its more or less yet another bandaid but hey u'd get some streetability back and affordable used. Shop owner around town used one in his demo EVO8 to compliment water injection. It was pretty wicked simple i liked the idea.

I'd never run more then 8 psi without a means to retard timing on boost, or use water/alky. With a good tune the KA will make 350whp reliably for quite some time.
