Horsepower Results - 1/4 Mile Method
Your Integra weighs about 2600 pounds and can complete a 1/4 mile in about 2.5 seconds. That means that you've got about 32888.28 HP at the wheels, and about 42754.76 HP at the flywheel.
a post like this is a step backwards for this website.
these have been around for ages. you make it sound like you discovered something that was just invented.
there's several reasons why you should take these with a huge grain of salt:
those calculators assume certain constants in the equation applied to RWD cars .
the output is peak hp.: how useful is that?
they rarely match real world output readings.
if you already have your 1/4 mile and 1/8 mile trap speeds you can calculate your acceleration.
tune to improve the acceleration.
that's the more important number to know and you already have it. We don't race to get higher peak hp. We race to get lower et's. You tune and modify to lower your et ...not to win a peak dyno contest....
after all the info on this site to teach people and advance their understanding , we get this kind of "have fun" post. This belongs on a noob board. Let them fixate and worry about peak hp and get passed by us because we know what other things are needed to go faster and we know better. Let's get past this sort of thing here as a board.
we don't have to be serious all the time and we should have fun. yes have fun. but do it smartly.
we're trying to keep this place from reverting into a place that isn't helpful and full of superficial unhelpful info.
I took a sample from my transmission fluid and it seems like the previous owner was using engine oil for the tranny. Now I’m having some shifting issues so I want to start by changing the fluid but I wanted to switch to OE MTF. Do I have to flush the entire system or can I just do a fluid change...
So my question is with a n/a gsr will you see any gains from a intake manifold without the butterfly valves? What about with turbo? I'm thinking about getting the skunk2 ultra series. I plan on doing coil on plug in the next few months and slowly working my way towards turbo. I have a RS with...
I currently have a full GSR transmission with a Quaife LSD. Well unfortunately at the track i started hearing clicking coming from the trans so I pulled it and a chunk of the case chipped a tooth on my final drive. Now while I have it apart I'd like to optimize my gearing for my needs. Here's my...
Does any body know how to squeeze a little more horsepower out of a b18a1 without going too much past stock? Just looking for any tips, tricks or upgrades that aren’t too noticeable when you pop the hood or get looking real close.
I urge everyone who reads this to please read my very first post in the suspension/brakes section labeled "'98 Spec JDM ITR Brakes Locking Up" about my braking issue along with my about me in my profile to better understand the back story of this car. I'm going on 6 years of...
