Wat Is The Max Psi?


Recommended Posts

totally depends on the setup.

I know some cars running over 20psi no drama's. Again though, its all subjective to the setup, how much restriction, lack there of, etc etc etc.

Power sounds about right for a good build

I'm running these and boost peaks at about 22psi.

How much power were you puttin down?? is it on a rebuilt engine?? mine atm is on stock internals so after the rebuild hks 2.8lt stroker was curious to know if i could acheive better power through more boost.

Hmmm... dont put a 2.8ltr and use -7/-9's IMO.

You use the -5's and go for the 400rwkw marker to do justice to the expense that is 2.8ltrs, otherwise if you are going the smaller turbos stick with 2.6ltrs :)

That's just my personal thought. It would be a very responsive 2.8ltr with -7s, but i just dont think the cost justifies the end

My R32 GTR has the -7 and is putting out about 330rwkw @ 20psi. It runs a max of 22psi but i don't have a power figure on that, but it does feel much more powerful on 22psi.. Stock internals also.

Nice yeah mine around 340rwkw at 19psi so was curious wat i could make, how much difference do you think it made?? ccause i rebuildin the 26 an not sure weather to keep the twins??

what do you use the car for? twins are there to reduce lag and kep some sort of mid-range torque. If it is a street car or track day weapon i would run twins, if its a drag car that you drive on the street once a month put a big single on it.

I dunno why people still have the idea that a -7 turbo is a good upgrade. The -9 turbo is better in EVERY way. It's much newer, a lot more efficient, has same spool-up and makes a fair bit more power. Too many ppl think the -7 is the Garrett equivalent to the GT-SS but it's the -9 that's the GT-SS. The -7 should be discontinued.

Was looking into this the other day trying to make sense of sizing/capabilities but it is very hard to find a listing for both in the same place... Any more opinions???

(this could get intersting...)

Very simple:

On your current setup, put it on the Dyno and push the turbos to the point where they stop producing more power.

I.e if you push 330RWKW at 21PSI then you push 22PSI and it still produces 330RWKWs then you know the turbos have reached their efficiency. Like Nismoid said before, it all depends on your specific setup.

    • I'd say post the dyno sheet so people can look on it, but you already know all dynos are different. I mean 26psi on Petrol/Gasoline seems pretty up there, and if you aren't revving it out then unless your torque is really nosing over, then of course more RPM will equal more HP. If you think E85 will make the difference between 533whp and 600whp the answer is absolutely yes. Given the only thing that makes power is the turbo, and you've got plenty of boost in there, it all seems semi reasonable to me. Curious to see what other people say though. The one thing that never lies is MPH at the drag strip. See what you trap. (ok, it can lie a bit with altitude and conditions etc)
    • Hello again, I have a 1991 r32 gtr that I’ve modified and dynod. The power it gave me was a bit disappointing with 533 wheel horsepower and 444nm torque on a dyno jet dyno. On a heavier dyno it would read to about 433 wheel horsepower. I say disappointing because it currently has : CP oversized 87mm pistons Eagle H beam rods Extended crank with the nitto collar  stock oil pump (nitto on the way) stock sump (leask sump on the way) Garret G35-900 single turbo  ^ With 26psi of boost (1.6 bar) 6boost v band manifold  turbosmart 60mm external wastegate Brian crower 264 cams tomei gaskets all around arp head studs  dual wallbro fuel pumps dw 1050cc injectors greddy radiator metal Intercooler pipes nismo thermostat  offbrand fuel regulator (tomei regulator on the way) ngk 7’s spark plugs (tuner refused to tune with 8’s for my car) Running on a motec m800  I know that running on e85 and opening the rpm to around 8500 instead of my current 7200 will also boost my power yet will it increase a lot or just slight because people like cardoGTR and andrew Hawkin from motive were all running around 600 wheel horsepower on the same setup as mine. Any feedback on what I’m missing?   thanks
    • At the moment still 8mm. 
    • I see what you mean !! 👍 so I drive with E85 AND E100 my cylinder head and full supertech with 270° camshaft and 10.25 lift this weekend I spoke with my mapper and he told me 10 ratio would be even better so I went to set up a setup with : 3.2l crankshaft from expensive spool import with a stroke of 91mm Nitto or IRP connecting rods length 152.5 mm and piston irp ratio of 10 after having the information near spool import the setup did not work because of the crankshaft which is 91 mm  therefore the assembly mounted in the engine block will come out 1mm high above the cylinder head gasket surface so I have to review the construction of the lower engine low IRP is Italian I am French I wanted to limit the costs because as they are in Europe I do not have customs fees to pay 🤷‍♀️
    • Update. Returned yesterday after a two-day venture driving it from Toowoomba, QLD to VIC.  Some bigger shots. However, this was a couple of hours into the rive at a driver reviver stop so you'll need to excuse the bugs across the front and the water from the storm we just escaped.  Looks like at some points both side windows had wind guards and were removed but left behind some kind of silicone or something (?). Any tips on how to remove this stuff appreciated. Noticed the handle for the hood release kind of just fell from its position with nothing fixing it in place to the mount. Looks like two bolts go there. Again, any advice is appreciated. The driver's seat is a Recaro seat in a fixed position (not mounted using the rails, which were in the boot). So the trip one was...more painful than necessary. I'm a bigger guy, so the seat belt was basically tight.  It also has a rip in the seat side closest to the drivers door.  Overall, I'm happy with my purchase.   Now I'm trying to navigate getting the roadworthy and registration here in VIC. Hope it will go well but I know the hood release will need to be fixed for sure.
