Re: Where to buy (specific) turbo? GT2554

We would need more info to be of much help. There are a lot of T25 turbos out there. Just because it's not a 2554 doesn't mean it wouldn't bolt up and just because it is a 2554 doesn't mean it will. Even off Garretts website the same turbo designation can have different flanges. Their 2554 doesn't h...

Re: Future Build Components

If I reuse my 252/260 cams, i'm assuming the extra compression will help them out quite a lot? Currently its 10:2 but hoping to go for 11:8 11.8:1 is pretty high for a mild cam.... you might try plugging your engine #s in to a DCR calculator to see about what your DCR is... as a reference, Skippy's...

Re: Future Build Components

A lot might mean different things to different people. It should make a notable improvement if you can keep it from detonating. If I had to wager a guess I'd say maybe 10 hp. That compression bump should net you more if you could keep the same max MBT ignition timing but that is a lot of compression...

Ah I see In that case I believe it should be fine as long as you don't run squirters. I believe the higher volume pump was made for the 4A in preparation for the squirters being added. I would definitely try to use the wave shaped gear but it sounds like that is the one you are interested in so I'd ...

The big question is why are you comparing anything to the early 4A pump?
Just run the late pump. OPT-036. It has the bigger gear.

Why such low compression? It will be very hard meeting your goal on stock cams. Personaly for 300 HP I would go about 10:1 on pump gas with a 272 or so cam.

This would be a T25. A good size for up to around 200WHP or so. I do not like the 300ZX turbos because the outlet flange is different than any other T25. This means if you ever decide you want a different turbo you will have to redo your downpipe. If that's not a concern and if your goals are under ...

Re: 4A-GZE supercharged - more power options for Lemons!

You would gain more power from the compression than you would the displacement because the supercharger is fixed displacement so it is largely regulating the amount of air going into the engine. This does mean that your boost would be lower though. This means cooler air temps and a small gain becaus...

Make sure the dashpot between the throttles is hooked up to a vacuum source. That dashpot holds the throttles closed.

I agree, I don't think there is anything that could allow that much air to get in except for the throttles being held open or a big hole after the butterflies, like the ISC or brake booster port or other big port being completely disconnected. Even those I wouldn't expect to let it go to redline. Yo...

The issue with cheap components is consistency, accountability and standards.

It'very likely that if you measured the thickness of 100 of their bearings vs 100 of ACLs yo...

You say you didn't have excess oil in the pan. Does this mean the oil level was where it was supposed to be? This is not a totally uncommon thing for some endurance motors to see but it's not the motor. It's likely a weak spot or a couple in the build. One thing that can really help is more drainage...

As suggested you might try playing with the cam timing. Those are tiny cams so with your small compression bump the low end should feel similar to stock.

Re: TVIS & Bigger Cams

The TVIS should always be a benefit to low end. The only reason to remove it is when the whole intake becomes such a restriction to top end performance that it's worth sacrificing the low end losses for much more top end with a completely different manifold setup or ITBs.
