My R32 runs 420hp (flywheel) at 1 bar and 470hp at 1.4 bar. I can tell you that on the road I've only ever driven it a handful of times at high boost. Low boost gives more than enough usable power.
Agreed, done the same in mine and it feels quicker off the line and sharper with throttle response.truupR,
Why not put a shorter final drive in there, or change to a 6SP Getrag?
That will get you the useable power and drivability mechanically rather than messing around with the motor / turbo / tune - sounds like you have a really good setup as it is tbf
Talking from my own experience, I've just put the 4.1FD into my 34 which consisted of an R33GTR rear diff and a new crown wheel and pinion set from Nissan Japan. It's transformed the car, where the Nissan gearing used to feel long (compared to a Honda [DC5 also]) the car now feels perfectly geared, much better for road imo.
Wow full boost at 2500rpms that thing must be a weapon! Is that an anti-lag set up or something?My car made 560whp with twin 2860-5's and I have full boost at 2500rpm with 0 lag which always amazes me once I get behind the wheel. I believe that 450-500whp would be ideal for a street car as long as its responsive at low rpm.

Absolutely not.truupR said:...if I had a 450bhp car vs a 600+ bhp car, both fantastically mapped - would I really have a use for that extra 150+ bhp on a public road?
There isn't.truupR said:Is there any point spending an extra few grand on bigger turbos, and more supporting mods to raise the limit of the car to a point I'll never be able to reach?
No, and yes. :chuckle:truupR said:...is it even cost effective to keep spending more and more for bigger bhp and more torque when 450bhp is already too fast for a public road? Would I just be wasting money for power I'll never get to use without stepping into prison sentence speeds in a few seconds.
