For the WRC WRX's I've seen one in a magazine with around 427 horse power on an EJ20.

You can buy that transmission from Prodrive and you can buy Petters used rebuilt car for 500,000. 427 HP seems kinda high, I thought they were governed to around 300 HP? I know they have restricter on the turbo inlets

My turbo's fixed and a lot better =)

The HP ratings if I remember correctly aren't that unusually high, but the torque is off the wall!

Thank you all for the info. 300 BHP at 5500 RPM, shouldn't that redline be a bit higher or is that because of the restrictor?

That's PEAK RPM, not redline. So in other words, 300 peak horsepower is made at 5,500 RPM.

you meen his transmission?

i think "tiptronic" is a BMW product, the style transmission is a sequential. pull to go up, push to go down


the tiptronic trannys in BMW's are actually automatic trannis with a computer that allows you to move between gears, but its very restrictive and will take over if it dosent like what you are doing.

the BMW smg tranny is a manual transmission with a computer that controlls it, and it wont take over it your doing something your not.

How exactly do you think they were getting those torque figures so high?
