Seeing as I can't post in any sections other than noob - here I go.
I've recently ordered (should be here any day) the FP68HTA through MAP (Cheers Adam). It's being shipped down here in Australia
and I'll do some back to back dyno runs to gauge how it performs for us 'normal' folk running basic bolt-ons.
My mods are in my profile (my build log has dissapeared??). Car runs fairly hard with a japanese ecu in it (Tomei) but detonation is a killer above 20psi. I have NOT tuned the car at all.
Here is the plan:
Baseline power run at chosen Dyno Dynamics dyno in shoot 4F.
Return home, unbolt the stock Evo 3 big 16g turbo and bolt the FP68HTA up - change nothing..
Return to the dyno, aim to run run the same boost as before - print off the map overlays showing boost, AFR's, torque and power.
Turn up the boost if it alows. I'm hoping the FP68 is a little more timing friendly than the E3 turbo? we'll see...
Can't get more 'real world' than:
Unbolt a genuine evo 3 turbo from a genuine evo 3 - stock manifolds, stock intercooler, stock intercooler pipes. Just some 260/260 cams, ecu & 3".
Bolt on an FP68HTA and see what the difference is at the same boost, then see how much more boost (if any) it will run before it dets..
Same AFR's, same timing - no tricks, no meth - pump fuel
Post up the timing maps once it's tuned on the Haltech
Video what I can
validate any increase in power with MPH at the strip
I'm not after a big turbo (nor do I need it), I'm after a better evo 3 turbo with more usable power.
I don't want massive mph, it's a circuit car. I need autox type power delivery with good midrange torque.. I want a bit more top end for when I do go to the strip and the bigger circuits hurt the 16g's top end (well, lack of top end)...
Anything anyone wants to see done while I'm at it or thinks I should do?
Unfortunately I can't log the Tomei ECU (OBDI).. tried and failed - nothing talks to it..
I'll update as I get results.. The only problem is it's coming into summer now and temperatures are getting up to ~ 104 Deg F this weekend and getting hotter from there. Results won't be as good as they could be but they will be comparable
once all the comparrisons are made I'll tune it with the Haltech E11v2 I have now installed. Return to the strip - Check the MPH.
