I just get this feeling that many eople in the uk dont really have the indepth knoweledge when it come to engine tuning, most opt to put a big exhaust, a K&N filter and some go faster stripes!
I mean look at matheus, this guy is no fool, he is quite clued up on engine tuning, often the level of techno babble confuses me too, and im sure in brazil those 500bhp 8v golfs and astras speak for themselves.
Well im glad that more some people have now decided to take engine tuning to a new level, just take a look at the powerfull contraption Rbell is making, that thing looks like it going to produce some serious power but with good reliability as well, and not running silly boost level.
I am aware that EDS have also made good strides in making bolt on BHP increases, while you cant knock it power to £££'s i do feel it relies too much on boost, the phase 4, what does that run at 1.85 bar or somthing?? thats seriously high, especially to run on the std turbo or a hybrid, as most dont appear to go for a turbo that is able to take it.
I was seriously impressed by a few engine conversions
Im sure the C20let has just the same potential as the sr20det engine, i mean they get some silly power out of 8v gold engines so im sure we can get more that 350bhp out of a let, especially now we have steel rods, uprated bearings and other high spec parts.
