Today I Got the most important part for my car In my opinion.. Safety First....

Little Update from the Dyno: we took the car to 16 PSI and made 407 whp and 320 tq.. Dyno sheet to come Eric had to go home for anniversary... Remember my stock GSL-SE differential don't like power...


I am in love with this 30 year old car ... More to come from the Dyno next week.. We are setting up the knock sensor.. I had RX8 knock sensor but my tuner recommend some bosh unit that I will install next week..

Well boys it time to get the big power out.. Semi peripheral engine done and upgraded turbo on the car.. Hong from Mike turbo got me ta new SXE 369 from Borg Warner last week..
The car is at the shop Rotary Werks doing the turbo install with Eric.. Dave from Dtech Motorsport will be tuning the car this afternoon... Hopefully we get 500whp with the factory gsl-se diff.. Hopefully it will hold for a few months..

Here are a few pictures of the turbo..

Well after a great day at Rotary Werks and all the help and effort they usually put on my car we got little over 500 whp at 20psi of boost with a boost leak.. The boost leak was found after we got the car off the dyno.. Will be fix next Wednesday and back on the dyno to recheck the boost map... Here are some pictures of the new turbo and a dyno sheet for one of the runs.. The new turbo Borg Warner SXE S369 is great, more power with no lag difference compared to the standard S366... Dyno sheet was done at 18 psi..

Been driving the car almost every day... Feels great on the street even in heavy traffic.... The new turbo BW S369 spools the same as my old S366 with a lot more power...
Car is a monster... No traction with 14 drag radial in 1,2 or 3 gear.. when you hit full throttle in 4 gear you think it will never get to 8000 rpm, this thing keeps pulling and pulling to red line... A lot of fun in the highway... Time to start thinking about breaks upgrade......

We just finished doing some minor tuning las Wednesday with idle valve and cold start and the results were better than expected... This car Been a semi peripheral it drives, idles and behave like a mild street port car.... Dave has done a great job on the tuning and Eric has built a great engine...

Next thing on the list is a diff and some big drag radials tires and more boost.. This turbo really shines in the 25+ psi area...

Hard work pays off …. Thanks to Eric Gerardo Monzon Rotarywerks great engine built and my tuner David Heerdegen from Dtechmotorsport.
We have a very reliable (7 seconds 1/8 mile 10’s seconds 1/4 mile mile car) with stock OEM GSL-SE diff and stock OEM 14's inch rims with 205/50/14 drag radial….
The car is only running 18 psi of boost do to the stock diff..

Mission accomplished for stage 1..... More to come..... Having a 30 year old street car that gives you this type off excitement and at the same time is a beauty and fun to drive on the street is priceless.....
