    1GB Talon TSI 16G, on methanol

    Haven't sold the car yet, been selling a few parts off of it. Mostly to customer at this point. Soon I'll start listing stuff I have left. Debating on selling the roller. Or parting it completely. . If I part it, I'm not sure what to do with the shell..

    1GB Talon TSI 16G, on methanol

    Kinda of an "end of an ERA" for me personally. Although we continue to work on, and improve the 4G63 platform, its going to be strange not having this car anymore. Here is the past 3 years, in 5 minutes.

    1GB Talon TSI 16G, on methanol

    So, Yet again I haven't update this in some time. The last I posted I still had the FP manifold on the setup. I wasn't able to get the combo spooled on the converter using the FP manifold. For testing purposes we thought we would try my old header to see if that would help. Turned out it...

    Force Engineering FP Black record & shootout pics

    Hey everyone! It has been awhile since I've posted on here. Thought I'd take a sec and post some of our recent results. We have had out 1G out with the FP black, and have been making a handful of low boost passes while bracket racing. First time we turned it up we broke the FP Black record...

    1GB Talon TSI 16G, on methanol

    Sorry I haven't been keeping up on this as I usually do. car is running and driving, put a around 50 miles on it. I have been having issue finding and IAT solution that will live in the high temps of this setup (no-Intercooler) and that has me behind by a couple weeks, and is really beginning...

    I finally had time to finish the exhaust up. Just have to add an O2 bung and some clamps, then I can mount my wring board and start running wires. No V-band, slip fit with a T-bolt clamp. Something I thought I'd try. Spent alot of time tucking this thing up in there. What the...

    1GB Talon TSI 16G, on methanol

    Thought I'd take a few minutes and update everyone following this. How the car sat right after shootout Fixed this gasket and a boost leak at the compressor outlet (Both happened before shootout), and made a few dyno passes Car made 546whp at 38psi, was 509 @ 41psi with the...

    The 14b Drag Race Discussion Thread

    I feed mine from the head as well, -3 also. both the 16g at 40+psi spike, and the F3SA at 38-40psi.. no issues.
  23. turbo23

    68hta

    I'm making 15psi at 3500 on my lower limiter. Thats at 10:1 afr and 0* timing. makes 20+ at 4100. Its an auto car so it would be hard to compare to a stick. Plus 11.5:1 and methanol, no intercooler. So the setup is pretty specific.

    FWIW my car has a Td06SL-2 turbine wheel, in FP's 8cm housing. Mated to a KTS 55mm inducer 76mm extended tip exducer all behind the TDO5H compressor cover.

    Kiggly Racing stops out @ Force Engineering for some dyno time

    The dyno is a tuning tool.. Kevin estimated it would go 170ish at this power level.. My car made 509,weights 2850, and traps 145.. Using that as a reference Kevin's car makes alot of of power!

    ECMlink 16g @ 410hp

    Well if it so damn easy then u guys should do it.. Shoot just go to town with a plasma cutter on an auto car right? That's all takes.. Buy some used slicks... Must be so easy that's why everyone does it right? Oh wait... You guys are real damn fast sitting behind your desk... Talk is cheap guys..

    ECMlink 16g @ 410hp

    So your first post was to say that it wasn't our tuning ability that made the car fast, and it was because it was a tin can. We tell you the car is heavy and now you say we acted like we just threw something together and it was fast? I have never said it was easy, thats where our experience in...

    Bradco converter VS. Stock converter dyno numbers

    This is not a re-stall. I'm not sure what he uses from the OEM converter other than the case and the diode, but i know its not much. he has his own stators cast, and changes fin angles and what not.. my knowledge on converters is limited. I asked him what all he changed and he rattle off a...

    Bradco converter VS. Stock converter dyno numbers

    It cruises very well. Damn near just like OEM did. Trans temp stays low, drive away from a stop just like normal. Only difference I've noticed is while passing or accelerating moderately. I've used a few dozen converters over the years, Coan PTC etc. etc. I'm very impressed with this one.

    Bradco converter VS. Stock converter dyno numbers

    here you go: HP & TQ over RPM RPM over MPH
  35. turbo23

    Bradco converter VS. Stock converter dyno numbers

    Thats because its graphed by MPH rather than RPM. Basically it had higher rpm at the same mph with the same torque. Not sure why I did that. I'll pull the graph up thats by rpm. I believe the wheel spin made the spike part of the graph have multiple data points so that part of the graph is screwy.

    Bradco converter VS. Stock converter dyno numbers

    It's his looseone I believe. It's a no nitrous converter.

    Bradco converter VS. Stock converter dyno numbers

    I'm getting to around 4200 rpm with this converter and 1gb big brakes. Could more than likley reach a higher rpm, i havent treid. Not much more, maybe 4500. The spikes were from wheel spin. I paid 1200 for this converter and he had it to me in a week.

    Bradco converter VS. Stock converter dyno numbers

    Tossed the car on the dyno tonight to make a test pass before going to the track tomorrow. Hadn't ran it on the dyno since I had changed the converter. These numbers are not weather corrected. My exhaust blows towards the weather station and skews the WC numbers. Hear lots of people...

    Just glancing through this and thought i'd toss some thoughts/info out there. Shane: As far as your knock goes, I'd leave the AFRs a bit rich and play with timing until you see the annealing point on the plug where you want it.. Also I hope your running a non-projected tip plug, a projected...

    Will 1mm O/S valves and ported head cause boost leak test problems?

    Its the cam shaft that will cause issues. My 294HLs never had both the intake and exhaust valves closed on one hole at any time it seems lol... I just put all the air to it and listened for leaks the best I could.
