The turbo was an 8cm 18g. 610 cfm

1. Bone stock ej205
2. No internal work
3. I put down just over 300 whp and 275 ft lbs on 92 octane. Altitude was pretty close to sea level, don't know the exact level. This was a stock calibration Mustang, and a very low reading dyno. A stock STI put down 235 whp, stage 2 put down around 260 whp, my protuned stage 2 WRX put down 203whp, and a 7cm 18g without meth put down 270 whp a few days before me. Full boost was right at 4k, made power all the way to redline. Pretty conservative tune. Peak boost was 19psi.
4. Sorry, never been to the track.
5. Anyone who says anything about lag hasn't driven a bigger turbo for any extended period of time. Boost threshhold and lag are very different things. If I punch it at 2k rpms obviously it takes a couple of seconds to make much in the way of power. However, if I'm at 4 grand and I punch it there is very little delay to full boost. Anyone who says that they're small turbo will whoop a bigger turbo because of lag doesn't know how to drive a big turbo right, IMO. If you aren't making power it means you're at the wrong RPM and need to shift. Maybe if we're both in 4th gear and do a 30mph pull you'll beat me to about 45, but if I shift to second buhbye. I went from stage 2 to this and honestly it wasn't much of a change. Cruising on the freeway and driving around town isn't bad at all. I make enough torque between 2k and 3k to make everything easy. I get great gas mileage. When I want power it's there in a big way, but for the most part it's like stock. I daily drive this car, and have for the last 10k miles with the 18g. I love it now more than ever. I've even been driving it in some serious snow lately and it's done better than I could've ever hoped.
