*VIDEO* - HIGHER BOOST - Crispeed Tuned 1st Gen

Well, from the last time I went to the dyno a few weeks ago, We were able to get 409 RWHP at 14 PSI. This was documented In this thread.<IN this Thread><HERE, thread this in>

Back then, we couldn't raise the boost higher than 14psi, otherwise the ignition was breaking up. When we returned, the problem persisted - until we found out the dyno ignition pick up wire was actually causing the cross-fire. Crap!

Well, once we eliminated the dyno RPM signal wire, we were able to increase the boost:

Numbers are:
  • 336 at 9 psi (pump gas)
  • 409 at 14 psi (pump gas)
  • xxx at 18 psi (pump gas)
  • XXX at 21 psi (C-16)
The car:
  • 1985 RX-7 GSL-SE
  • Haltech E6K -Tuned by Crispeed
  • 63-1 Turbo
  • Ford 8.8 Rear End (very heavy!)
  • Isuzu NPR Intercooler (Large)
  • 720's & 1600's
  • Aeromotive 1000
Here's the video of it all:
High Resolution (89 megs) right click, and Save-As <-Thanks Vosko!
Low Resolution (Streetfire) <-56K Only (should be working soon)

Let me know what you think.

I'll post a full dyno sheet soon. The engine is definately capable of more power - We just ran out of wastegate spring. We could't run more than 20psi. Even with the Profec B set all the way. I have a 9lb spring in the Wastegate, and really should be runninng a 14+lb spring to enable higher boost.

It's all good though, and I am verrry happy with the performance, Especially
from a relatively small turbo - deisgned for street use, quick spooling.

Once again - Thanks Chris.

Just Wow. That car is very impressive. Incredibly well put together. The fact that it's a 480rwhp SE is just icing on the cake. Keep it up man, awsome job!!

6 point steel cage, 1/2 a tank of gas, everything in it (except me) = 2650.
Without the side bars (making a 6 point into a four point) it's probably 50 lbs lighter.

This is with the stock rear end - I haven't weighed it with the new rear.

I'd guess around 2700 fully loaded.

Nice! I'm jealous.. I can't wait to get to work tomorrow so I can watch that vid (still 56k here at home). How does it feel on the street with 480RWHP? I can only imagine... My buddy ran a 11.24 @ 123mph yesterday with 485BHP in a 2800# FC. I smell 10's in your future

Spool is excellent. Especially with the haltech over the old holley system. Full boost by 4100 rpm. This turbo is very similar in specs to the GT35/40

Awesome video and awesome car.

Just a little side questions, What is the limit in boost for C-16, roughly? 25psi? 30psi?
