has anyone ran over 400hp on a stock gsr head?Or will the the valve springs and retainers give up?
depends on how high you're revvin'. on a turbo build keepin' the revs 'round the stock revlimit... you should be aiight.
if you pnp your head adn do the valve train work yo will have a much easier time hitting high hp numbers
basicly what he said. Your head is not really affected by big hp #'s it is the revs that kill it. Try spining a GSR head to 10k+ you not going to be lasting long.
Remember, by doing head work, you improve the HP more. Bigger cams, PnP for flow, valves and springs to support the higher revs and duration of the cam lobes. You just increased the redline, and the HP.
bah- your fine.
you're not going to rev much higher than stock boosted anyway.
i say just upgrade your valves. rumor has it stock valves dont like 15+ psi
i won t rev pass 8100 and will have my rev limiter set at 8500
i plan to run about 14-16 psi and 100 directed port nirtous.
keep your valves till they break. If you bend one, it isn't usually the end of the world. You should have a chance to fix it.
you wont need the juice if you use a REAL turbo.
none of this pussy 15g shit j/k
well my car is a daily driver so i went with greddys 18g setup
and direct port nitrous
(If u recall im the same person with the ls-vtec supercharged with direct port nitrous.)
i toke out the jrsc and will be installing the greddy 18g and directed port.
i ran 15 psi threw my t3t4 daily on my old integra when i had it....
i wouldnt want a valve to break on me which can cause a motor to go poof.
you're going to need better head studs
^^joe, you're on hondaswap too???
for everything else, there's Hondaswap
everyone who's anybody is here y0!
Greddy 18G kit is a Pile. T3/T4 50 trim minimum is where ya wanna start doing a kit. Take that greddy kit, unbolt the turbo and manifold, insert into trash, and pickup a header like the SFP one, external gate and a nice garrett. You'll see a world of difference. Oh also at least do a hondata and throw that Greddy control box in the trash while you're at it.
What do I know.. I'm a nobody ricer....
