I would have said about 250-260 at the fly assuming you have a healthy car in ever other respect. They very rarely make their standard power without mods.

i think as always people get blinded by the bhp figures

your running standard boost , its going to be like a standard car

decat will help but not much

how can an i/c make 25bhp by putting in a larger intercooler and keeping the boost the same?

HKS intakes , are not very good at filtering anyways so your running duff filters

so long as your happy with the car thats all that matters,

is bhp all that important?

You will get minor improvements over stock from basic stage 1 mods - ie exhaust, filters, ecu. If you want significant gains, get a bigger turbo. This "8bhp from an exhaust" addition is Max Power-esque rubbish. Don't get blinded by bhp figures quoted - most of them (including the manufacturer's) are rubbish. As matty says, it's more important to have a car running the way you want than a headline bhp figure.

Are you serious? Add some octane boost for 5 HP, some stickers for 5 and your over the 300 mark...:eek:

We presume the turbo is standard,so will not allow more than 1 bar?

very funny u idiot suppose yours is the best skyline about you w****R

Are you like 17? Get real man, ever since you came on this site it's been one thing after another. Have you ever heard that its better to remain quiet and thought a fool than speak up and remove all doubt?

Did you really think that adding all the claimed HP that each piece advertises could be so easily added together for a grand total? And I am the idiot???:chuckle: :chuckle:

If the car has no boost controller and the fuelling, ecu, afms etc are all still stock, it is pretty safe to assume that you have a standard turbo.

I have seen cars with more mods you have make less than the manufacturer quoted 250bhp.

Just to expand a little on what the others have said about manufacturers hp gain claims...

Some manufacturers may claim 5hp for this and 8hp for that, this doesn't always represent top end gains. Sometimes mods might add 5hp in the mid range and lose 2hp top end therefore your car may have less hp that it did before the mod went on but it would be quicker than standard through the mid range.

Swapping the intercooler on standard boost wouldnt do much, maybe you'd get a few ponies here and there because the intake temperature may be lower thus creating denser air = more oxygen per square cm = more power.

would the best way for me take it to a rolling road and set up so we can see what boost etc its running at and what power its throwing out?
just thinking way would someone fit a front mount intercooler and not have the boost turned up?

Mapping an ecu can be expensive so some people tend to get all the mods required for xxxbhp first before getting their car mapped. If you've taken over someone elses project they've obviously moved on before finishing what they started.

Get the car on the rollers to find out its hp figure.

...and on that note you might want to keep in mind that hp figures DO vary from dyno to dyno. If you want a true idea of your gains, get the car dyno'd, get it tuned and then get it dyno'd on the same dyno it was on before :thumbsup:

ps - Dont forget top take your video camera :D

Your best bet is to RR it, but the figure could vary depending on which RR you use and will just be a reading on that day, it may the differ the next.

It doesnt work like that, it isnt a simple sum of all mods with their supposed gains, try the above and get a vid up too
