dyno run? the turbo is producing 50rwkw more than the charger
with no other modifications to the engine.

1/4 mile? hoping to run it at wsid this week but more than likely it will be cancelled due to the weather...

I have a Powerdyne BD-11A on my EF Fairmont I6 Auto. It got 207rwkw with 6psi, and ran a 13.85 @ 100mph down the 1/4 mile. Based on the lack of traction alone I reckon there's a 13.5 in it, and if I ran the smaller pulley for 9psi boost maybe more again.

Was your raptor setup intercooled? More ignition timing due to lower intake temps could account for some of that difference. Is your exhaust the same also?

no the charger wasnt intercooled at the time.
strangley enough the ignition has had timing removed mid map, this may be due to the turbo making boost earlier, but at max boost the turbo still has 13 deg as it did with the charger..
and the exhaust is still the same...

its also boost vs rpm that makes a difference.. you might have been making peak power @ 7psi, the power dropped off but PSI kept going up with RPM.

with the turbo, peak power is at 9psi but at the same RPM.

To add another angle into this, I've got the Snort M112 kit on my EF (which will be for sale in the next few months too ;) )

The eaton does not feel fast at all. It feels very very similar to NA in terms of how the power is delivered. I did no mods between NA and blown, and it still feels strong in the same parts of the rev range as before, and still dies off in the same parts (>5000rpm on stock cam and headers)

BUT...


The speed at which the power is delivered is phenomenal compared to before. It just revs more freely and quicker than before. When you set up next a reference point that you know, you see just how quick it's really going.


I'm a big fan, any revs, any gear, squeeze the throttle to half and you're past the car that you were beside. done. no fuss. very good for a daily
