Well, I take my car down to Chiptorque on Friday to get the fuel remapped for my current setup.

The few dyno runs I've done have yielded the following results...

With pod filter,
2.5" Press bent exhaust.
10psi
Fuel remapped properly.
140hp ATW

with the above mods and
3" mandrel exhaust
mild steel IC pipes
**** house fuel mapping, running really rich
12.5psi
165hp ATW

On friday I will have...
the above mods
brand spanking new HD clutch... yay no more slipping!
15psi
fuel remapped.

I'm hoping to get very close to the 200hp ATW, I don't think that I'm dreaming that much since an extra 2.5psi should kick up the hp by about 20hp at least... taking me to 185hp and then the remapped fuel should give me at least 15hp... so yea, what do you reckon? Willing to give us your estimates?

BTW. I'm getting the car retuned for mostly 1 reason... not for the extra power... but to save money on fuel... I mean when I say it is running rich, I'm killing native wild life as I drive past!

Yea, that was the main reason I got the clutch done.... I'm just waiting now. I don't know how fast I will go, as a guess probably mid to high 14's. If I get better than that I will be happy, but it really will come down to grip.

I have a mate who consistantly runs 13.4's and on a rolling start we are very close, it is only his damn AWD that kills me :D

you could get low 14's with some practice, its just a matter of perfecting the launch which isnt easy at all...

how wide are your front tyres? maybe go for some 215's or even 225's (if i remember correctly they are ok on the front but rub on the back with $WS models).

I would like to the see the stock turbo pushing 200hp at the wheels but honestly i cant see the thing pushing more than 200hp at the fly.. really its just too small and at 15psi its well past its efficiency range (ie less gains per psi)... well unless you score yourself a nice aftermarket ic =)

anywayz, looking at getting my chip tuned too just need to sort a couple of issues with the vf22 and fuel system first :)

Depending on how the tuner sets the dyno you could get 300HP

Only JOKEING. I've just had a dyno to myself recently and watching a number of differrent cars from old and new to fully worked. I will have to say UTrbo cars are the amazing one's I even have video of this turbo Rodeo on Pump fuel 12 psi it was putting down around 220HP put it upto 16psi and it only puts down a further 280HP only 60HP more but as the turbo is masive once you get to 20psi -25 psi boost on Higher octane fuel it then really boggys and gets up to 420 HP at the rear wheels.
So yeah the stock turbo is small but you may get what you think.
I know by 14psi it's gone. Basicly anything above 10psi and it's creating way more heat.

As for your times well, one thing to note is on a good drag strip it all changes. i know during the day at the creek it's still slippery by about 8pm it's very sticky and you go up to another 2000rpm on launch in manual if slipped not dumped and about 1000rpm on auto. This on street tyres as well.

I've got 225/35/18 all round, with King Super Lows and 4WS.

It doesn't scrub at all with 4WS DISABLED.

With 4WS enabled it does on slow turns... I estimate a 0.5-1.0 inch raise in height at the back will solve this, and the Kings are too low at the back anway.
