I'm curioius to know roughtly what kind of power i can get conservatively tuned with this setup.



88TII new rebuild (stock port...probably going to be done by bruce terrentine (sp?))

s5 turbo and manifold (practically new)

full turbo back RB exhaust ( no cats )

drop in K&N

apexi safc II

aluminum flywheel/ act 2600 clutch



This will be a daily driven car for the most part so i didn't want too much power.

so my question is what kind of power do you think these few mods can will generate?



Thanks.

only thing adding power there is gonna be the turbo, and exhaust. the clutch and flywheel do nothing, the safc only lets your car use its full potential doesnt make hp.



id say whatever RB says their exhaust increases, would be whyat you should expect, MAYBE 3-5hp extra from the KN...MAYBE.

yea i knew the clutch flywheel wouldn't make any power...as far as the RB Exhaust...i read their sight and it says 59.X hp ...that seems very high to me...but maybe i'm wrong?

Why a k&n drop in when you can just bolt a k&n cone filter onto the afm?



Same monies, and more flow. Lot better spool up.

^alright, that sounds good as well

So does anybody else know the validity behind the 50+ hp gain from that exhaust system?

Less restriction in exhuast increases boost pressure as well.

I just put the RB system in. Not sure about 50hp but there was a definate gain. (not a small one either) Not to mention turbo lag is gone.
