Per your other thread, there are red flags. I would NEVER EVER EVER run a setup like that on the stock suspension. It could never handle it. I see a few areas he cheaped out on as well.
If you get it, do so knowing that stuff will likely break and that that suspension needs dire work.
Lets all try to come to a conclusion is the first set-up stated by me, worth 10k dollars? if thats nearly all the money I have to spend, or would it be better spent going another route?
Where have you guys been for the last two years?
It's pretty standard for a vf on E85 to make in the 330-350 whp and 350-400 wtq range. Yes his seem high, but 280 on corn, please. I made that on 91 at 4,200.
Hell I've run mine on a few and I always get 330-350 to the wheels at 20.5 psi. He's running 3 psi more boost which really just spikes the torque early so 400ish isn't out of the question.
This is what they generally make. You'd be hard pressed to see anywhere near 400 wtq on any VF turbo on E85 without using a high reading dyno. You see a LOT of newer tuners these days suddenly claiming ridiculous peak torque numbers. You regularly see people thinking they are making 350-400 wtq on pump on STI turbos. I've seen someone posting a dyno sheet showing 500 wtq on a modified 20G, and they were fighting to the death that that was how much that the car was actually making.
