My friend bought a 96 TSi at an auction, and we're pretty sure its been
modded. He knows a dude with a eclipse GS-T and says engine does not look
the same. I dunno exactly what the turbo supposed to look like, but it has
the cone type red air filter, dunno if thats stock, and some screw sticking
out of one of the pipes. Also, when you floor it, the boost gauge goes to
20psi. This seems alot to me. What is the stock boost level on these
Basically if thats higher boost than stock what kinda power should it be making?
My friend has a 95 talon tsi..and his psi is around 14
stock boost? around 6-8psi.
wat kind of power? depends on so many things..... even the turbo size itself. in fact, with the exact turbo size u could THEORETICALLY guess how much power it could be making.
Can you get us pictures? And yes, that car is definetely not stock if its running 20 psi.
Not on the eclipses. Most turbo DSMs have 11-15 psi. If he's reading 20,
then the previous owner put in a new turbo, but isn't extracting the full
potential out of it. (the stock turbo isn't know for making over 14 psi).
My guess is that the wastegate or BOV isn't able to pull itself fully
closed, or the previous owner set it to 20 psi max because of fuel or
Probably around 230-240 HP at the crank. If you have a beastly turbo in there (T88 :drool: ), and you get a new wastegate, new BOV, new piping, new intercooler, new fuel pump, newfuel injectors, and all the necessities, you'll be able to push 400 horsies out of that thing.
stock boost is 15 lbs for eclipse gst.
i dont think a stock t25 would last too long trying to push 20 psi
