That day 11.2. Best to date is an 11.01. I'll get into the 10's sooner or later. It's a stick so it definitely makes things more difficult for drag racing. At 604 whp I would probably running 10.7's with an auto. It's only pushing 15lbs of boost. I plan to do a cam swap soon and crank it up to 20lbs. The blower is good to 25-28lbs. Just have to save up some coin.

Hemi

LOL

Thanks man. I have the kb 2.8 on mine. I would have gone whipple but for some damn reason they refuse to come out with the 2.9 for the 3V
I made 595 HP with a crappy Saleen blower BBR heads and BBR cams with the stock short block. 14lbs in my 05 GT. we backed off the boost and made 500 HP for longevity reasons. Plus at idle that Saleen blower sounded like it was crushing rocks inside it.

An LS2 in an RX7 - woohoo, that's gotta be a handful!

I'll have to meet you out there some day. My 335 is pushing low 11's (11.3 @ 127 is my best) and will hopefully be in the 10's once I get my new 3.5 bar TMAP sensor so I can run more than 22 psi. I broke a half shaft a long time ago as they are our week links, had to find a beefy one to replace it with. Getting an aftermarket LSD also helped that issue.


*edit - they 335 who broke down actually broke his axel. He's running close to 700 rwhp on a modified single turbo car. He just posted a video of it on the e90 forums.

Sorry OT :

So if you go with the 3.5 bar will you have to recalibrate your program so it can read it accurately?
I know when I did mine( in the hi boost rotary motor app) I had to use a vacuum pump to mark the reading on the pump and what the 3 bar sensor was reading. We then had to make the math adjustment so the ecu would read the boost in calibrated form.Stock ECU would read only 17lbs.
Or is this a map sensor from the BMW line?
