    Build information

    http://www.dsmregistry.com/details.php?car_id=21

    Times, ran an 11.6 @ 114 after shredding my alternator belt, I had no fourth gear on that run. This was done on pump gas and 22 psi and full weight.

    I have since upgrade my intake manifold, upper intercooler pipe to 3" and a larger 90mm Q45 throttlebody. I plan on adding a meth injection to the system also, but I have to upgrade my clutch and rear end first.

    Esp if you plan on keeping it any kind of streetable. need lots of redundancy for tuning (MAF, IAT, MAP). Coil on plugs are overrated and don't work, cause more problems than they correct (unless you use tunable $1200/coil coils), and crankcase ventilation is necessary when you start pushing more than 21 psi on larger turbos.

    So thanks for the kind words, and understanding on the "busyness".

    Haha, my bay is so empty. Naturally aspirated honda. I could probably get in there and shut the hood

    Ah. when you get an aftermarket SMIM, and remove all that under manifold clutter, that becomes a lot easier (esp with no A/C, which I still have).

    the back of my block is super clean and free of BS though. It's amazing how much room is back there.

    Dsm crew holla.

    I HIGHLY recommend the south bend disk. Shit is off the hook. Unless you're opting for a twin disk

    How are you liking the shep stage 4 with the spider? I think I will be picking this up next summer as I'm sure I'll be popping my tranny soon from road racing.

    What times are you expecting to run...because a built rear end :eek3:

    Oh, and meth :bowdown: I recommend Devilsown

    I am going to be going with a twin disc for the next clutch.

    The stg 4 is a great trans. If you want traction and can sacrifice the drivability, get a welded center. 4 spider is still an open diff.

    I want to run a 135mph trap and a mid / low 10. That has been my goal for a long time

    As for meth. I plan on running 100% meth, and probably 2 or 3 nozzles as soon as i convert to speed density.

    I'm road racing the car so a welded diff is not an option.

    I'm still stuck between tre or shep. They seem to both have great trannys.

    Meth was the biggest difference I've ever noticed, kind of shocking. My buddy installed the devilsown kit on his car, and was running massive boost without any detonation. So I ended up buying the same kit.

    I already have 1 map sensor. I just need to find a meth kit using a 3.3 bar or higher map sensor, so i can just vampire into the signal for the kit.

    How do you like ecmlink v3 versus v2?

    Also, how laggy is the GT3582R?

    I'm running the sbr 50 trim but I want to step up the power a bit but not suffer too much lag for road racing.

    You get more control. And with the addition of speed density, it's much nicer w/o that crappy inaccurate GM maf.

    Not at all comparatively. I get + manifold pressure at 2200 rpms in third, and 20 psi at 4200.

    You need to size your turbo to your engine. I'm on a 2.3, so I stepped up into a true garrett T3 BB turbo. You may want to look into an FP3065 if you're on a 2.0. Or if you want to deal with the lag of it, get a DSM86 (ball bearing 86mm exducer HTA billet compressor with a GT35 turbine in the FP turbine housing).

    I would stick towards the GT30 turbine if you're on a 2.0

    I'm running the Buschur stage 3 block and head, but I am a 2.0. My buddy had alot of luck with the gt35r but I'm still feeling out this 50trim so we'll see next season where I want to go with the car. Now that you mention it, a guy on the local forums just ran a high 10 pass on a fp3065....and stock block :mamoru:

    In regards to the speed density, what did you use to get manifold pressure, just some aftermarket map sensor?
    I had heard that ecmlink was pretty good integrating the gm maf.

    I use a 3.3 bar map from GM. As for the maf, whether or not ecmlink is good at integrating, the maf is inaccurate due to it's design. It's a hotwire not designed for blow through pressurized systems. It cannot use map to adjust its reading.

    Are you going with a helical lsd in the rear or something else?

    Putting a viscous OEM LSD into it. My car came with an open rear end. It was an option on non ABS cars, unfortunately, since I am the 2nd owner, didn't have a choice in the matter.

    Not many options for 2g's in terms of decent aftermarket suspension that are adjustable. Ksports were the first things to come out that were under $1000, and since there was a group buy for them on DSMlink forums for $750. I jumped on them. No regrets yet. They are very good for our cars.

    Ah, I was happy when I found out I had the lsd rear as I wasn't aware of this when I first got into dsm's.
