Re: My car is not fast enough... (gmugolf)

This will get you there and back...

I was talking to the guys at powerchips yesterday while I was down there, and they said they could make us a tune for pretty much anything. I mentioned a big turbo upgrade, and they seemed very interested. I might get one of these if someone else would be willing to try it out with me...

Re: My car is not fast enough... (carreragt7)

Well, I was thinking that we could organize a group buy on the parts that most of us need. I know that we could ALL use the manifold, turbo and all the fittings and hardware needed to install it. Since most of us have already installed intakes, down pipes, ext. I think this is the best way to go. I inquired as to how much a smaller kit would be, and they still haven't gotten back to me (this was almost 3 weeks ago)... but my guess is that from looking at the pricing of the other kits with less components, a group buy price of 2000 or so is reasonable (I would estimate 5 or so people to get them at this price). 2000 dollars for 450 horsepower? I'm in!

Haha, yeah... Rough life! Hopefully I'll be cruising around in the new SS Camaro with the RS package pretty soon. 426 horsepower.... mmmmmm


But yeah, who else would be interested in 2k for a big turbo upgrade?? Also, those who know turbos better than I do, which one do you think is best for our application. IIRC the bigger trim turbos will make more power at peak, but take longer to spool. With our choices being the GT3076, GT3071 and the GT2871, I almost feel that the 28 would be best. Any other opinions?

Yeah, I'll make my car the test car for the guys at Powerchips. They said they could do a custom tune for us if we decided to do a big turbo kit (they wanted to add another tune to their arsenal). The day that I get it installed and running, I'll bring it down there and have my girlfriend pick me up so they can keep the car and work on it. Once the tune is finished, I'll let you guys know and we can get the tuning of all the rest of the group buy cars going. My guess is they will probably give us a pretty good GB rate for the custom tune as well.

However, I know that many of you guys are skeptical about Evolve (Powerchips) tuning. If someone knows the guys at IPD better than I do, maybe we could get a tune from them worked out?

Move to Cali man... I'm a 20 minute drive away from them. Plus, it's beautiful here...

Good point... to my understanding, our block and internals are relatively sound, but I'm not sure they are solid enough to take the strain of it as a daily driver. let us know what Volvo says
