I was looking at my dyno chart and at 5k rpm i still make 175rwhp and 190 ftlb of torque, so i was thinking thats still a decent number. Anyways spring is coming up and because i dont think my 5k hesistation will ever go away i was looking at alternatives and the best one i could come up with is somehow shift my top end, lower. Anyways what would be some good ways to make more power in my mid-range rather than high end? By the time i start racing i should have about 500 dollars to drop into this area.



Thanks.



EDIT: Also if i got a standalone, would i somehow be able to tune to get most of my power below 5k rpms?

Fix the problems you have before even thinking standalone, if you cannot work with the minor problems you have why would you even think of going with a stand alone and finding out the problem still exists?



As far as a carbon fiber driveshaft...$950 I don't see that in to many peoples wallets...





www.acpt.com if you want to ask and read about them.

so you're taking a non-torquey, non-lowend engine and LOWERING its redline?



if you ever upgrade your turbo it wont even fully spool by 5k.



I love the thought tho "hey i cant solve the problem, ill avoid it"



when the problem SIMPLY takes maybe $200. god forbid you ever run into a REAL problem that costs REAL amounts of money. $200 is practically like a tuneup for my rx7.



Im sorry for acting out, but i simply cant take it anymore. I will refrain from participating in all of your future posting, and i apologize for this "attack" but such levels of stupidity deserve such a reaction.



No need to bash me or anything i will no longer be in your topics, im clicking your ignore button and all will be settled.



good day sir.

How do you even know that's the problems?! What if i do spend 200 bucks and the problem still isn't fixed, what if i keep spending 200 bucks over and over again and my problem still isn't fixed?!



The reason i'm so pissed is i tried to find a car that i wouldn't have to go redo everything every twenty seconds. If i had just bought a shell i couldve completely redone everything and still had extra money but it looks like i might have to replace my brake rotors now too on top of all this other crap.
