I'd like to build my 2010 2.0 engine. I went to get it tuned today at a local dyno and they were going to charge me $600 and only getting 15 hp out of it. What is the best way to gaining hp ? I'd like to be around 350hp
350 wheel hp from an engine that that gets about 210hp at the crank?
That's about double the hp at the crank
intercooler and piping
wastegate (if turbo doesn't come with one, and turbos to make 350 whp usually don't)
replacement timing chain
bottom end fastener kit
SteveJohns29 used to have that power with stock internals but his build list now includes built engine components and more hp. It can be done but if you read his thread you will see where parts start to break down.
Well, I am not going to argue but my $.02 are - I believe that most reliability depends on the tune. Of course, it also depends on the driver including his or her aggressiveness. I am the owner of TXS400 (one of the bolt on turbos TurboXS sells) and this turbo is capable of making 400 horses. From talking to @[email protected] and other guys at TurboXS - I can safely produce your wanted numbers on stock engine with full bolt ons. I don't even need to port/polish the manifolds which a lot of people do believing this would help. I will be ordering their can tune soon and once it's all together - I will let the dyno show the result. Also, I would suggest you be the judge of your own car - if you are not afraid of trying things out - I'd say do what you think is right. Luckily, our motors don't cost as much as S85B50, so if anything - look at it as an opportunity to buy a bk2
I know this thread is old as hell and I didn't read it to the end, but I used to work for the Hyundai dealership owned by the CYCC Hyundai Canada racing team. They used to run upwards of around 500-600hp on stock bottom end. Those 2.0T's are EVO X engines. You can go so far with them. Just do it right.
Any DIY or instructions for setting up a manual boost controller? I have been running mine from the compressor housing to boost controller to wastegate bypassing all the fittings on the stock solenoid but get very inconsistent boost readings off my AEM Truboost.
Pretty much have all the ports...
I just ordered the Grimmspeed MBC in preparation for my big turbo upgrade and custom tune, can one of you guys post a pic of how you installed the MBC? Mounting locations and how you did the boost hoses.
Did you use it together with the factory Electronic Boost Control Solenoid or did you...
I inspected the pulley system today to hunt down a whiny pulley(alternator), and noticed my crank pulley wobbles. I'd estimate there are 2-3 mm of wobble. The rest of the pulleys track straight. How big of a problem is this and could it be the source of my rough idle? I can take a slow-mo video...
Because no one wants to approve my build thread, imma post here.
Last thing I worked on was the head I think a year ago.
ate away at the head in the lobe travel areas to allow my tomei 11mm lift cams to fit.
I made a jig out of some pipe, a dremel, and some nylon spacers.
I still have to...
Trying to get close to 350whp, besides a custom tune and the mods listed in my sig, what else besides a bigger turbo would I need to reach that? Could I get close to 350whp with the ISR EVO 9 Turbo kit alone?
