what are you doing with your intercooler? stock?well then what is the best i can do with what i have.
3 bar map sensor
pd150 intake manifold
arp studs, (cheap insurance)
vr6 clutch and g60 flywheel
later this summer
colt stage 2 cam
One issue is that the internals of the ALH IP do not operate well above 5k rpm.Hey ill take that. But when i look at stock parts that have been damaged in a upper 190hp or 200+hp car i tend to conclude that it is either heat, PCP, or RPM.
Ive seen well over 5k rpm a number of times in my car, while i dont to it regularly it happens, and i dont see many tuners going out past 5500 aside from full race tunes. I dont think the reputable tuners have a bad rep for letting customers spin things unreasonably, although im sure there have been cases. This only really leaves a few culprits in many cases.
You can still get about 50mpg (ish) with those mods. MPG is all related to the effort your right foot places on the peddlei have the stock intercooler and everything else that goes with it in a box in the garage. i have no need for it at all though.
forgot to add
i am looking to get an 11mm pump also.
i guess the double edged sword would be i would still like to get my 48-52 mpg
got the car on the dyno
hp 173.9 at 3613rpm
tq 365.5 at 2210rpm
Bah misleading us with a dash dyno =p Git'r on a real one soon.the numbers came from my buddies dash dyno. the meter was within 2%+- when he tested it out on another car he has, so i feel that it is good for a rough estimate. but i think that the torque reading was a little high
Yeah I was having some of what I think were fuel related problems anyway.. See how the graph drops like a rock above 3700? Add to that I only had PP502's.. The newer (smaller) PP502's..That's a low trq number for such a high hp number in a rotary pump ALH.
I would have suspected around the 350+ range.
I guess you really can't complain though, high torque numbers tend to blow up gearboxesYeah I was having some of what I think were fuel related problems anyway.. See how the graph drops like a rock above 3700? Add to that I only had PP502's.. The newer (smaller) PP502's..
I have a feeling it may have been something inside my injection pump since I think the 03 with the new engine is doing something similar.. I'm using the pump that came off the 99..
