1000 rwhp with 700 ft lbs of TQ is a ton different than 1000 RWHP with 850 ft lbs of TQ !!

Have to ask southbend what their clutch is good for. I would think 700-800rwtq.

If it is the clutch, then it just plain broke ..... no slipping etc. No bad smell, nothing like an ordinary clutch failure. One second everything was fine and the next all I have is neutral no matter what gear I am in. Thats why I am leaning towards a hard part failure.


Has anyone else sprayed one of these cars with a direct port and a 76mm turbo @ 30 psi before?

The only person that comes to mind is Vic(TazaM3). Not sure if was still spraying after he put the 76mm on. Haven't seen him on here in a while.

Larry,
With this turbo on a built 2JZ, how much are you guys seeing in rwhp at these boost levels? You guys are still running the steedspeed manifold on Tom's car correct? Keep it up, this is definitely exciting news for everyone.

Well it seems that the BMW does better up to a point. At lower boost levels the BMW certainly makes more HP than a 2j at similar boost. But then the BMW hits a wall at about 950 RWHP no matter how much boost I throw at it. The 2J will make well over 1000 RWHP with this same turbo. So there is definitely something holding us back. All eyes point to the steedspeed manifold as it looks to be the only suspect part.

do you guys have the backpressure sensor hooked up? that would tell you right away what the deal is.

Of course we do but that is only telling part of the picture. I have the BP sensor in the collector area right before the turbo. BP is getting high but not ridiculous. We are speculating that further inside of the manifold where the first 4 runners merge there may be something going on.

Ya I'd love a tubular manifold but I really just want my car back it's been to long! The car will be back to SP snowy season for a tubular mani and I'm sure a couple other little goodies

Wasn't there a guy in Europe that made 1040ish whp (not sure how much trq, i know trq kills lol) on here? Micke I believe his name was? Anyone know what clutch he's using? I really hope it was my clutch not tranny as my tranny came out of a 30k mileage m3 and shifted like butter, my poor car haha
