NO FREAKING WAY, unreal. The non turbo I tested was a DOG, no go at all. My moms 89 Pantera could've taken it, hence my state of shock. So now the questiong is can Cats Turbo take an RX-1, is there any comparison, or will it take some serious mods to make it a race? I've seen F-7's lay waste to the RX-1 so if the Turbo can run around F-6 territory my bets are it might be interesting to see them line up against one anotherOriginally posted by Sled Dogg@Nov 16 2003, 01:48 PM
Yes it is FAST!!!!!!!!! it was tested at like a tenth off the pace of the F6!!! it makes 21lbs of boost and 110hp but tons of low end torque. Some tuning and it'll smoke a F6!!! It's listed about 95lbs more than the F6 also. Some clutch and gearing and watch out.
I made it from a pic I took of my engine. No big deal.Originally posted by Suicide Machine@Nov 17 2003, 05:42 PM
Hey Beerman, Hope you dont mind me stealing your Avatar, couldnt find any good ones so I bit off off of yours, but hey at least I admited it. Where all you guys get the good avatars anyway?
Not if you truly know what you're doing. For every 1 tuner that knows what he's doing there are 50 who claim to but have no idea other than increasing timing and leaning out the A/F.Originally posted by hpzrt600@Nov 18 2003, 09:42 AM
As far as jumping up the boost to 28-30 pounds, there goes the reliabilty of the engine. If you have ever talked to anyone with a turbo on their car, when you increase boost you burn head gaskets, crack blocks and heads, melt pistons, ect. Sure it will make more power, but at what cost? For drags, fine, for trail forget it.
