no need to be driving around town at 24... 14 is pushing it on cast block, with no forged internals.
A cast block? Do you mean an aluminum block?

With a proper intercooler, the right tune, and a reciprocating assembly that can handle the force, 28-30psi on a 3076r can be fine. As far as reaching "maximum flow" for the engine. . . that's a bit of a stretch for this example, he is most definitely limited by the strength of his motor, not the displacement. I have seen 2.0l I4s making over 600awhp in daily driven street cars and 500+ in 2.5l on multiple occasions. The wastegate bleeds excess exhaust to regulate boost in the turbo, it does not bleed intake air.
You need a Mitsubishi to run that kind of power reliably. In England they sell a stock-internal Evo X w/ 400 hp and a warranty. Just some bolt-ons and a tune.

Evo's haven't run 4g63's since 2007...so yeah they have.

Nobody has heard of the Evo X FQ400? It's a real car that really makes over 400 bhp.

guy's trapping a good speed on that car.

For the most part though.. your mods in your sig are bolt on light-duty mods only.. and time wise. you're still beating him on the clock.

You do some internals work you could smoke him and still be n/a. According to TSP some of their VVT series cams can pick up 100whp and thats on an L99.. LS3 can probably do better for you.

The mazdaspeed3 isn't anything to laugh at though, direct injection 2.x liter motor, its only problem is that it's fwd and rides like a 2 horse buggy.

There's a guy here in town with a very similar build that is just hounding me to race...

About a month ago we spoke he's been through 3 clutches and one tranny.

I talked to him about a week ago and he had blown the motor....

:(

He did say it was a matter of time... he's rebuilding now and gonna run closer to 15 lbs of boost. he thinks that will be pretty durable.
