Looks good, what’s the spool and boost curve like on the Gen 2 GTX out of interest?
Do you have any dyno graphs?

I have been on dyno once, result was 200WHP, while i'm faster than cars that have at least 300HP (such as Golf 7R, audi S3 etc.) so there is something weird...:blink:

sart spooling at 3500 RPM

Looking good! I like your WMI on the winter manifold. Go for an updated tune before the next dyno pull, then post a chart. Should be 300+WHP. Really interested in your boost ramp. Are you using an external boost controller?

thanks !!

we dynotested before working on the internals, but it showed only 213 WHP, while it runs stronger than car that put 300WHP on the dyno...
anyway, we are heading for the 400hp mark.

I'm using greddy profec boost controller

I spent the summer working in the caribbean based in Barbados - amazing level of mechanical skill and talent everywhere, and some really nicely modified examples. Looking forward to seeing how this progresses.

I actually met a colleague from Trinidad and turns out he's already a member of MT, and he regularly races his R53 at Bushy Park.

Awesome work you did so far!

Are you not afraid it won’t last long with a stock (open) deck block if you’re shooting for 400 hp?

I’m asking because I didn’t go closed deck either and therefore I don’t want to get the boost up too high to keep everything reliable and aim for numbers around 300 hp instead.

Don’t get me wrong this is cool and a good amount of effort. But I remember reading this thread before and lol’ing at the lack of attention to handling or stopping whilst chucking a load of power up front.

I drove a stock R56 once and after a while forgot it didn’t have the same brake setup as my R53, this led to some brown trousers at a roundabout
