    wife's car vs 20 psi eclipse

    we did three runs.

    motor vs 20 psi = was from a 45 roll. three honks i took him by about a car. as he spooled up he caught up. shifted and he dropped back slightly. once spooled back up, he had me by about 1 1/2 cars when i let out.

    spray vs 20 psi = this was from a 30 roll. not even close. left him by three cars and let out.

    spray vs 20 psi v.2 = i let him go from a 45 roll. even worse. this time i didn't let out until he was about 1/8 mile back.

    Just because one car runs the same boost as another doesn't mean that they will pump out the same power.

    Different turbos with different efficiencies can yield VERY different power levels at identical boost levels, even on identical engines.

    My Eclipse with a 16G turbo would probably run in the low 12s at 20psi. I've never run the boost that low at the track, so I don't know for sure. But with boost levels higher than that, I don't get as enormous difference in power as my race boost levels (between 25 and 30psi on any given run) might imply. So I only end up running 11.82 and 118mph or so.

    With a larger turbo on the car, I could run even faster at a lower boost level. But I'd end up turning the boost up even more.

    I'd love to see a "Rusty Pushrod" w/ 24psi run an Eclipse w/ the same... I don't really ever see any FBodies w/ Turbo systems and it seems to be the only thing a DSM GSX "Boosty" would ever have in their favor, Just my opinion.

    Me too! I'm sure it would kick ass, if it could find any traction.
