Default 15g obtainable hp guesses on a 240/b230ft

got a cherry turbos built 15g direct bolt on for my 240, i'm essentially looking for 300 hp and find it hard to believe that 300 hp is obtainable with the 15g AND supporting mods of course. my question is, is it possible or should i grab a holset or 2871r?

no farking way on that turbo. unless you wanted to run it way out of its efficiency range & boosted like 26 27 psi. *cough* maybe you might be able to pull 280-290 flywheel.

but thats hoping for pigs to fly & for hillary clinton to just go away

2871r is good. holset is good

but im a big fan of faster spool up & things that still "look" stock. a 20g would be a good choice. or a 18t/19t. the choice is yours.

*edit*
slowboyracing.com makes a "bastard" 20g it might be right up your alley

based on weight and quartermile times, the calculator said i was running 240ish hp with my 15g. i dunno if that was wheel or crank tho. a 15g wheel, in a 15g compressor housing, on a td04hl center section and exhaust is NOT going to get you anywhere near 300hp. 240-250 is more realistic.

I love my Super 16g from Hahn racecraft...you can get them for pretty cheap on Ebay now. Both myself and Poik are running them. This turbo should be good for 13's in my car, need to get my car tuned first

yes but you did that with 23+psi ... I did a better ET and trap speed with only 15psi on the 15g SO ..... with a proper setup you CAN hit 300bhp with a 15g.

yes you can talk all of the crap all you bitches want but I HAVE seen more than a few dynos of TD04HL-15G/16T's doing it. just because it can not be done hear means that we suck at volvos.

most of you love to throw $ and parts at stuff vs doing it right, myself I feel into this group as I still have yet to run a faster ET than my 15g @ 15psi time

you cant recommend anything you havent run and doesnt exist.....

i wouldnt recommend the hx35 unless you go for the smaller bullseye power exhaust housing for it (.55 if you can find one or the .70 they now still sell)

though I like the He351 i have on my car currently (spools decently for its size on a B21ft), but if you want one cheap, youve got to hunt it down (i waited for a month or two checking DTR every day for one and scored one w 8k miles on it for $250 shipped)

300HP exists in B230FT's with 15g and 16T. I have seen it quite a lot of times. High octane and big IC is the key of course. The 15g and 16T really likes to heat the air beyond 280HP worth of flow.

In the FWD cars it is pretty common to see 300HP with the 16T's.

the 2871r seems to be a great turbo as well as the holsets, you can get the holsets cheaper tho... well i guess i should tell yall i'm building a drifter out of a 78 242, that 2871 has quicker spool than the holset correct?

btw, runnin msns, ported 90 mani, mildly ported 530 head, oversized valves crane springs

325 should be thre limit with high compression, well tuned fuel induction, efficient air-induction cooling, and efficient cylinder head flow characteristics. after that are the driveline component reliablility.
