Nice video, those Honda's are a lot faster than I would have ever thought.

If only it were true. Drop 10 mph off those traps, the greater portion of the "0" in 108.8 was missing, so it looks like 118. Still, I'm real happy with the 12.9 @ 108.8 with my $5 resistor box as the only mod :)

this is what i am sayin hell a year ago this was thought to be impossible... Ahh well thats time times we live in now i guess... Yea the car is still my daily D altho i gotta figure out what happened to my turbo i think it took a crap.. Trans is still shifting hard and working fine accept i think my overdrive is about to take a dive..The gto guy was cool and was sweatin it in his words "man that things fast outta the hole".. He had heads, cam, FAST intake, longtube headers and a full tune on drag radials..

i get about 23-24mph on the highway and around 12-16 in the city dependant on my foot.. the car is not a whole lot diffrent from a stocker accept for the lag from the larger turbo.. full 22psi by 4200rpm.. Its not bad tho.. and for those thinkin man thats laggy just understand at 2500rpm i am still makin 5-7psi soo my highway tq is still acceptable...

Haha, that sounds more like it. Pretty good for such a short mod list though. I do love those new 335s, very pimp.

Sam

The lag is what I was wondering about. Ok doesn't sound that bad.
What turbocharger are you using? Could you post your whole (engine) setup please?

50 trim t04e, stock b230ft with a v15 cam (i think), samstyle exhaust, npr, megasquirt.

Ruben
01-29-2008, 06:36 PM
Ok so nothing done to the head except for the cam? Skinny block isn't it?
T04e hotside as well? 90+ manifold or something a bit more fancy?

So, his modifications cost more than your whole car and modifications.


Fantastic work. :-D
