It really helps to learn what the tables do and just do it yourself imo, if the "tuners" don't want to take your money just read up.

Pump, E30, E50, meth, FBO, intercooler/no intercooler, throttle pedal preferences, how aggressive do you want (track endurance, strip kill mode, street balanced) etc will all effect timing, afr, boost and a few other aspects. What stage does each fall under? Sure, FBO+93 and stock E30+91 are kinda similar but E30+93+FBO is much different, which stage is which? Imo if you buy a Cobb, buy a protune. If you bbflash, start reading and logging. It only takes an afternoon to dial a setup in pretty well on this car.

Atco, MIR & Pocono are all easily within reach. If you'd actually commit to a date, then I'm sure we'd have no problem finding enough people to make a track rental happen. The nice thing about the street is it doesn't cost anyone money when you back out. "

" As was I. From what I've been told (at lightly read) the new MS3 is a beast in itself. I may even be able to use it to run DI and PFI at the same time, which could come in quite handy. "

" Hey

I'm installing RB's and have got stuck on installing the front turbo.

Rear one fit fine and is now complete.

I am unable to fit the front turbo through the gap. I have all the oil and coolant lines fitted already.

Do I have to get and engine stand and lift it?
What have you guys done. "

You did raise an interesting point: boost control. My end game is a single turbo, might it be easier to start there and run my own system for boost control?
I was going to ask this. I'm surprised it can do direct injection. "

" FYI, these would totally fit on a 335i. I had exact same sizing on my 335 but actually 10.5" rear wheels and had zero issues.

I know what these wheels are new, great price with the tires!

Someone should take advantage! "

Sticky created the thread This is the English Racing built 745 wheel horsepower 1994 Acura Integra running to 187 miles per hour.
" Ok this is an absurdly fast Integra. Usually we poke fun at front wheel drive cars here but this a vehicle that is definitely about performance first. It's boosted, it's lightweight, it's front wheel drive, and it is quite simply fast as hell. At 745 wheel horsepower it hustles to say the least.


This car hit 187 miles per hour at a recent airstrip roll on event. Let's put it this way, it was faster than anything from Germany. What does it have done to it? This is the modification list the last time the owner @gringotegra checked in with us:

Sleeved 84mm B17 block
Crower pro billet rods
Weisco pistons wish upgraded wrist pins
Moroso oil pan "

" ok. but how much are ppl really getting out of this other than headaches? not to be a debbis downer but ur better off adding boost and keeping timing reasonable.

stock turbos can only do so much before they are just out of their efficiency and makes gobs of heat
seems like marginal gains with unnecessary risk.

but i guess it may be fun for a tinkerer

i have to be honest, my car has been far more reliable with the single turbo than it ever was with maxed out twins "
