I'm just estimating, but woudn't a 22% reduction make the supercharger run at 20,000+ rpm?? I'm no expert at engine mechanics but I think that would discombobulate the supercharger....and shred a few belts....maybe even parts flying out through the hood...
Please prove me wrong, cause I want a 22% reduction pulley....and get instant 40hp!!
I got a 6.1 sec 0 to 60 , GGR conversion , Full Milltek Exhaust , Alta Indution Kit , 18" OZ Superleggeras ,Pirrelli P7000 tyres on front Toyos on back , lots of crap in me boot too very surprised and happy with the time.
Had a crap launch though , i think me and Dink after a few more goes could get a lot quicker time . Practice makes perfect
Just finished running a few tests runs with the car after having it MTH'ed. Previous best according to G-Tech was with 15% and stock ecu and stock suspension was 14.3 at 55 deg outside. Ever since i lowered the car i could never duplicate that time and to be honest they have been truer since. As in compared to when i took the car to the Strip. G-tech showed 14.7 strip showed 14.8. Waiting to go to the strip and back up the data i just got. but here is the data from the G-Tech this is the AVG of 5 runs.
those average times & speeds from G Tech ( ie 13.5@114mph) I would guess are very inaccurate?
The difference between your previous of say 14.4@ 95-100mph and the above would need another 100bhp (Especially the 114 terminal speed) .Maybe you have got 350bhp I dont know. I know mth is good but that good! Actually were taking our CS to Santa Pod this month .I think only proper drag strip times are accurate enough anyway.
Good luck ! Regards Roland GT Tuning.
Roland. I agree somewhat in that Strip time are more accurate thats why i stated cant wait to go to the strip to back up my data. On avg the G-Tech has been anywhere from as little as the .1 off as avertised to up to .6 off. Besides HP there's something else your not counting for either that could make it possible and that is Weight. The car has been lighten some 300 lbs Mostly rotating wieght since the 14.3 run. For when i go to the strip im estimating only a 14.1 - 14.3 at about 98mph. The other factors im counting in are outside Temp. and Heat soak for the IC. For the test runs i dont have either since there at night and i dont have to wait in line and after doing a burn out to heat the tires.
But since this thread is for G-Tech times. I do a 5 run avg so i dont have a one shot where the meter could have slipped down after the take off causing a false reading. As for best at the strip I've done it at 14.4 before so the 14.1 -14.3 isnt unreasonable.

Mugami. Fair play ,weight is the enemy for sure. It was the 114mph that caught my attention. I think with 300lbs off you will do even better than 14.1, certainly in the thirteens
i think .How have you lost that much pork? Is it road legal,& what tyres?

Very dissapointing results at the Tucson Southwestern Int'l track:
Temperature: 74 F
Altitude: 3,100 ft.
ET... firstname.lastname@example.org mph
60' ...2,500 s.
Serious traction issues with all my launches, all within .1 sec. I tried everything, but I couldn't get a 60' under 2.5...this is a very demanding track as most of Subarus WRXs (some of them heavily modified) were in the mid-high 14's and low 15's. Raced a couple of them and they just destroy me on the first 60'...what saved the day was the fact that my MINI was faster than those Subarus on the last 1/8 mile.
Same WRXs were doing low mid 13s on the Phoenix track with no altitude/temperature/compound issues.
On top of that, my Gtech was showing some very optimistic results. On that email@example.com run showed a very optimistic 14.8@98 mph...
Next day I dynoed the car at APEX R Motorsports and I got a dissapointing 175.6 hp at the wheels. Yes, it was HOT, and the fan was blowing hot air at a room temperature of 90-95 degrees, but with the mods I have, I was expecting somewhere around 190hp at the wheels, wich translates to 215-220 at the flywheel. 175 whp should be around 200 fhp. I was mad. Could the answer be that my DT 210 conversion was in fact a 190hp conversion? I'm pretty sure that my Madness CAI and my Borla race are giving no less than 10 whp altogether...
