Looks like an R33 to me.

Good to see those numbers from you :) Any idea what it weighs?

Lovely photograph as always. Definitely one of, if not the, best looking mx6 on this site!

Go Cam, great #'s man. Is it still setting at 310 Hp? or have you done more work since then?


You may remember when my valves fell out a year ago, well i finally got it all sorted.
The tune is still the 310 hp one. That was on 17psi with a redline of about 7000 rpm.

The head has been ported out more and the valve springs have been changed. They are honda B18 springs from Comp Cams.

Last saturday, i put the head back on, i lined up the dissy by eye, i set the soft limiter to 8000 rpm and i raised the boost to about 21psi.

After 7000 rpm, and over 18 psi, the car is running rich. As it hasn't been tuned for those points.

I am looking at getting the cams dialed in the and the engine tuned on about 24 psi. With that i am hoping for 400+ whp and a low 11 sec run.

The car is running really well at the moment and i have a fresh gearbox with the torsen diff in it, so it should last for a while yet.

I found that the grippier the slicks got, the slower i went. So i may up the air pressure to try and get some more slip next time.

nice Job Mate

Nice to see you finaly joined the Torsen Diff club. Now see if you can do a me and smash 3rd to bits. TWICE

You have 11second pass in it right now with that MPH.
I know it's FWD but it can be done.
What's the 60 foot like?
Drag radials look great with Gen2 S1 wheels.
If I had stock brakes I'd love to fit a set onto mine, I had access too recently.

Can't wait to see more

Sweet, there's hope for me yet :)

Hey, about those honda springs, it says that the intakes are dual, but the exhaust side single, does this mean your exhaust side is not single? or that your exhaust side is uber stiff? Just curious. I'm very happy with the ground VR6 setup myself.

I assume you are on stock rods at 8k? Do you drive it much, and do you drive it at 8k much, if so it will be good to know if it lasts or not :)

I might even raise my rpm limit if yours is still going strong when I get home. and the boost to go with it too ;-)

Thats what I was thinking. Maybe he put intakes on both sides? How well is the fitment? How about the retainers and such?

I am using all the honda outers with my FE inners.

I have to double check, but all the spring rates for the b18 outers are the same.

I am reving it out to 8000 most of the time, the rods seem fine, but i still have to get the car tuned for the 7000+ rpm range and the boost over 17psi.

More to come soon.
