I have been getting a lot of PMs recently, so here is the whole story regarding the tune:

This whole process has completely redeemed King Motorsports in my eyes. Their tuner Tim shook my hand after he was done and said "Sorry for wasting your time".

They couldnt have handled this situation any better, and I am going to be a customer there for a very long time.

The reason for the false positives on the plugs was the extreme retard, which actually ended up raising the temperature in the combustion chamber, so it made it look as if the car could not take any more timing. But, as soon as we increased the timing, the numbers shot up.





















The false reading on the plugs was telling them the car could not take any more timing, and they did not want to have to call me telling me there was a hole in my piston. But they rectified their mistake, and both because of the quality of the new tune, as well as the way they handled the situation, I give them the highest possible recommendation. I am very happy with my decision to take my car there and would not hesitate to recommend anyone else do the same.

Sounds like a very solid setup. However, a couple of things:

GT3076R. This turbo can reach 500whp at it MOST. It is not a hp that should be used and obtained with this turbo for an extended period of time. This turbo is good to about 480whp reliable to the wheels without any issues. Any more than that, and you're pushing its life span. A great turbo nonetheless. Don't get suckered into larger A/Rs for just an hp number that could get higher. From what it looks like on the setup, you're looking for a much more responsive setup than all out power.

RC750 injectors. Please stay away from these. I've had over 50 sets of these converted injectors crap themselves in under a year. The reason why they are the only company willing to make a saturated injector that size is because of the fact they are taking a 440cc saturated injector and modifying the pintle of the injector to flow at a higher rate, so that a resistor box isn't needed. This is supposedly a way to have the best of 2 worlds. Saturated, but can still have a higher flow rate. What they DoN'T tell you is that you are on borrowed time with them, because even though they altered the pintle and signal interrupt to flow the higher level, it is still a 440cc pintle, so it will fail prematurely. Get a set of Peak & hold 680 or greater injectors, resistor box, and get reliable. I've been going on a similar setup for over 4 years with no issues with the Peak & hold Siemen Dekas. Look to Precision (uses Rochester/Lucas) or Delphi Injectors to solve this.

Also. DO NOT use the CTR Type R race crank pulley WITHOUT an upgraded TODA oil pump gear (If using a New Oil pump for GS-R, you want the 84mm gear to fit.) The balance on the Race CTR pulley is not at ALL made for a street car, regardless of the testimony of "helping" with power. Even if you're not running A/C or P/S. Keep your stock crank pulley rated for the correct balance for the crank.

An Eagle crank also is not necessary, but if you want to spend that on your budget, that is totally fine. A GS-R OEM crank will do just fine, as well, if something were to happen, you can utilize at least some variant of the OEM bearings, with the Eagle crank, once its done, its done.

Also, WHY the Toda Headgasket? I run Toda Gaskets on all my N/A cars, but on Boost it is not at all needed. If you want to raise compression a bit, instead of trying to port the head, look at a good resurface. That is a much safer approach.

Otherwise, It all looks pimp...

I've seen 500+ whp with a gt35 on a GSR with the stock head...so maybe you could save some cash by not modifying the head and using a slightly larger turbo.

Exactly...If 500whp is what he's looking for, he also doesn't have to have Ball-bearing cartridge. Save the money on the turbo (and the $160-$200 in water lines that are needed for the GT3076R or any other "R" series) and get the GT35E, GT66, or T3/T67 to do the same thing. I do recommend coatings for the Nickle Iron housings that they come with Standard.

(Since he's Top mount, he can also do a Borg-Warner S366 and go with a V-band downpipe.) I do recommend coatings for the Nickle Iron housings that they come with Standard.

Mac, thanks for all the info. I did think of most of that stuff ahead of time. Let me clarify.

1) I am using the GT3076R becuase it matches my goals perfectly and will be my best bet as far as throttle response is concerned. I am shooting for 500hp at the track on race gas. Im not going to near that number on the street

2) Never heard that about the RC 750s, Ill look into it. I got them in a packaged deal, and I never really planned on keeping them for too long anyway.

3) I ported the head mostly becuase I had already taken the head apart and it needed to be machined anyway. I only ported it behind the valve stems, For my set up that will be just fine. The machine shop specializes in B series heads and knows how to get power out of them.

4) As far as the TODA head gasket, I got it because my stock one had 100K miles, and this one is the stock size and can withstand a bit more abuse.

5) For the CTR pulley, I did replace the oil pump and plan on dropping in a TODA oil pump gear, theyre very expensive though. I am considering losing the thing altogether.

When you said this Mac

"From what it looks like on the setup, you're looking for a much more responsive setup than all out power."

You couldnt have had it more perfectly.

Thank you all for you input. The coilovers and LCAs are on, pics tomorrow.

Danny

I could, but Im shooting for a responsive set up. The head is already modded. A bigger turbo would make sense, but I want to see boost before 5000 RPM. Took a bunch of pics, gimme a sec and Ill try to upload them. I have a new computer and I have no clue how to do it

how much did you spend on the engine work and parts if you dont mind me asking cause i wanna do something to my car on a pretty small budget and i hear for the dollar/hp turbo is the way to go

^^ small budget = low boost daily driven set up, which is all you will be able to achieve. What's your definition of low budget? Danny has a very large budget because he overhauled his motor, however my turbo budget is small compared to his because I have a stock motor.... but it's still not cheap. Dan correct me if I'm wrong... but I bet you're near the 8-9 thousand mark.
