Max boost from HKS 2510


Recommended Posts

The boost isn't a problem if the engine is tuned to handle it. You need the right fuel delivery and timing adjustment to stop the engine destroying itself. This must be set up be a professional. I know of 3 guys who have smoked their engines just playing with the boost alone.

thats on the to do list, get it tuned on the dyno so I am saying that it may have been chipped already but will have to see. I was just worried about pushing the turbo too hard and figured to keep it under 1.1 bar.

but the question really is what kinda boost can I run with the ecu tuned properly.

Cheers Ben

it's a HKS ball bearing turbo. It will probably do 1.7bar easily. HKS turbos are known for having high efficiency ranges, so when it's at 1.5 bar say it works the best. But on a bigger engine you might be trying to put too much exhaust gas through the exhaust housing in the higher revs so the power will drop off.

Give it a go on the dyno... just tune it to what power you want if you have all the support systems to go with it!

When i say whatever power you want i mean that the turbo will allow, a 2510 won't net you 500hp no matter how much boost you screw through it!!!!

Yeah thats good as I can get some more jucie out of it. But as you said I think the key is in the duno and see how things go there. anyone got any suggestions as to where a good place to go is. Silverwater A S, I know are good but maybe a other places would be good just to get some ideas.

Thanks everyone for their input.

    • Haha likewise, take my shit box for a spin and maybe you'll end up wanting a R33 shit box again lol...  
    • @Jasoncauser looks like a tight technical track, and definitely fun! Let's hope I make it to that day 😎  
    • The springs just lets the valve bleed off pressure/oil and it bypasses the feed gallery and heads back to where the pickup feed is On the LS the oil gets the the bearings...eventually  This vid explains the OEM pump well IRT the pressure release valve and how the bypass works The oil pressure light coming on intamitantly could just be a sticky valve, but, why pull something apart and not put something better in  I believe the low oil pressure light comes on somewhere between 5-10 psi Well will stick a gauge in after the installation to see what difference it makes at hot idle and higher RPM, and by high RPM I mean 6300 RPM.....LOL
    • My bottom end was rebuilt... so I think it's standard? Or refreshed.. standard? I didn't do it - I bought it with a lot of receipts but it has new bearings, new pump and was re-assembled. Apparently I have the standard flow, standard pressure pump. I did notice the oil pressure for a LS at idle is quite low, but not critically bad, I am happy that it's at about 28psi now (that my gauges work/don't leak). I would have probably specced the high pressure one, but I'll admit my ignorance after making my other post, I don't see how the pressure spring changes things. Given the pressure is a resistance to flow... high flow should also = high pressure, and your oil pump specifications should be dictated by how the engine is built (hence the sincere thankyou video man)
    • my first time on the track, just after getting the 32. tyres were 3yr old NT01's, rotors were cactus, pads were street pads. You can see the vibrations when I hit the brakes lol. After this is when I put new BDA rotors, Hi Temp Brake fluid and Intima type 2 pads. Wow what a difference
