J93O I saw a friends '99 9-3 with a T25 and stage 3 (JT full 3", bigger IC) make 235hp and 300tq though it was on a "dynomite" dynojet and I think they were correcting for altitude so...

that's scary... I have 80k miles on the car so hopefully the turbo won't die like that.

9k aero haha why would I want to make up numbers? I want my car to make high 200s or low 300s at the crank.

my friend mike just put down 265whp and 335ftlbs with JZW stage3+. a stock 230k engine, with a stock Td04.

i would say 18ts run around 300whp +/-

9k aero Yeah, I know theres some people on here pushing 260whp on t25s. That's about 290hp?

All I want is 300+ ft/lb at the cranck. Now is that too hard to ask for from a t25?
08-02-2009 07:57 PM
christian900se Not safely, that would be pushing the outer limits of that turbo even on a 2.3. You might see close to 300chp on a very aggressive tune but I think there are some in the 260+whp range with t25s.
08-02-2009 07:53 PM
dan-the-kid I would say no.

But what do I know???
08-02-2009 07:45 PM
9k aero Do you guys think I can get around 320hp and 315 ft/lbs at the crank SAFELY with a t25, 3" intake/heatshield, 3" downpipe, magnaflow rear muffler, 3.5x25x15 IC, catch can, ported tb bend, silicone vac lines, turboxs bov.

AND a safe custom tune by JZW. Maybe stage 3 or stage 3+.

I'm just listing anything/everything related to the engine.

I'm wondering because I want to see how I do against my buddies 97 supra twin turbo, auto, ssqv, intake, and hks catback. Call me stupid for even trying, but I think it'll be fun.

This is my car, I'm running exactly whats stated above. I dynoed the car at my school for one of my performance classes, and it put down these numbers 320.86whp 346.29wtq. Funny thing was we were building t-bucketts with chev 350's and I pulled more hp, kinda pissed my teacher off haha. I will be posting sheet asap.

I'm also running an innovate wide band and my air fuel is great. The more the boost comes on the richer it gets, normally around 12:1 at wot. Also I have already destroy one transmission blowing the spiders apart through my case lol. Cars quick..

J93O Drew,

Gotta get those T5 cams. That power curve will only get hold longer into the high revs. They really improved my T7 with stock ecu and stage 3 hardware.
