Hey guys!!!
I have'nt touched my engine yet its bone stock........so before i start on my quest for power i wanted to set power goal!!! and i chose 400whp. I wanna know if its possible to attain that kind of power without modifying the internals of the engine.

If no, then what is the maximum amount of power i can put at the wheels without touching the internals of the engine!!!


Thanx!!!!
Regards,
Shady

Re: 400WHP on MR-2 without Internal modifications?

Speak to MRMIC2 - car already in that region of power, but i must agree that 400WHP on a MR2 is mighty scarry, and its going to be a bitch to drive on the roads. Unlike other heavy chassis (Skyline, Celica etc) 400bhp is very wild on a MR2.

400whp on a 1200kg car is really scary... it will be wild to the max...

Re: 400WHP on MR-2 without Internal modifications?

Standard 1ZZ has only 140hp with 170N-m of torque @ 4200rpm.

If you can build torque to 380N-m @ 7500rpm;you are there!!!....400WHP.

Figure this one out...WITHOUT changing engine internals.

Re: 400WHP on MR-2 without Internal modifications?

400 hp on stock internal is possible at the flywheel. 400 whp on the other hand, hmmm...

Last time ran 340whp with stock internals with no problems, with nitrous and turbo upgrade.

Re: 400WHP on MR-2 without Internal modifications?

B4 U go 400whp, beefup the car's handling capabilities..........that has alot of work U need to do such as the suspension, shockers, brakes, pay special attention to your car's arm geometries, set yr camber right etc, etc. Also U need to hv the right LSD, as stock LSD might not handle that power properly, tires is extremely important, these is to ensure yr car go straight rather than fishtailing. Do U really need 400whp?

I guess not........but 400BHP sounds good enough!!!! well!!! let me be honest with you!!!! Other than the reason that im in love with my car, my other reason to startin this project is I wanna build a Honda Killer!!! No offence to any1 here on this Forum but.....where i come from, more than
half of the street racing comunity drives a Honda and they think its a ferrari or sumthin.

Every guy u talk to says brags bout his crapy honda when it comes to the road all he can see is the rear end of my 2!! so thought id step the game up a bit since their brains started workin and their startin to use forced induction.

So I'm hopin u could post up a set up list for me, keep in mind this car is driven only on the weekends!

thnx buddy!!!

Re: 400WHP on MR-2 without Internal modifications?

Very neat simple setup. I like it alot!! I have a few questions though.

1) What Mods did you do to the head?
2) How does she perform, does she give you alot of toruble?
3) What do you suggest is a good turbo for street setup!
4) What are your views on MAP ECU and Power FC since i was gonna pick one of these ECU's for my setup.

Thanx 4 your time!!!
CHEERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!:wavey:

Re: 400WHP on MR-2 without Internal modifications?

MAP ECU? U mean switch your A/F to MAF i think. If your thinking of those BHP you will need a standalone already, PowerFC is the easy way to go but Haltech, Microtech all also can.

400bhp is not street set up anymore... :-D
