Mighty car mods transformers special

Yeah I thought with how much effort and custom work was done we'd instantly see a nine second and then push it right to low 9 high 8 depending on the driver. That rear end and transmission combo would be capable surely? Just turn it up to 11 etc.

Do you realise how big the gap between 9.9 and 8.9 is? 9.97 is damn impressive for a new build on only it's 4th or 5th pass

I just feel like they swing a few spanners and then a bunch of actual mechanics come in to finish the job. They don't hide this but at the same time I would have much preferred this to be over a few episodes rather than crammed into one video.

 

they crammed it in quite well but I feel like this is completely different to the original mighty car mods.

 

all that being said I am stoked at the results they got and I think that is a real achievement. :3gears:

You may notice the duration once combined with a standard ad schedule would fit nicely into a 1hr slot on discovery channel? 

 

I loved it, and I'm very proud of what they have achieved and will continue to support them.

Nope I don't that's why I was asking. Just curious to know thoughts. Seems like a lot of guys here seem to run very quick cars without most of the work they had done meaning the tranny and rear end etc. and knowing the car is significantly lighter being that it was torn apart I thought it may have more in it. Don't get me wrong I'm still impressed and I love their attitude and approach but just seemed like it was overbuilt for the result they wanted. But you're right I don't know what it takes to get there so it may be that I have completely the wrong idea about what's required.

Actually what would normally be required?

Does anyone on here that runs a high or low 9 have a list of mods or comparable setup to get that result. Genuinely interested in what's required on our cars due to their weight and size.

Rather than spell it out I'd suggest reading through the power threads and seeing what parts are used. 

 

There is a fairly common theme for any engine to make power reliably.

A car of that weight and build would require allmost 850whp to see it go into the 8 sec zone comfortably. Hard to tell whp with them though because of everyone running different covertor and trans.

Sorry mate didn't see your post

 

With a perfect 60ft which it's capable of with the diff setup it could possibly go there with the current turbo if the motor had a set of rods in it to turn it up.

All good mate. Yeah it might just get there with that turbo but going through a th400 it might just fall short. It'd be pretty close.

 

They might have more in store for the build. Why go to all of that trouble just to use a stock engine?

Links don't work on tapatalk. Will have to go find it on safari.
 
There's 2 mins of my life I won't get back.. so other then that being useless from what I gather he said a 044 can't go past 400kw or something??? Still don't see how that's a decent reason, I mean I wouldn't run a car with a single 044 at 400kw if it was for a customer I'm all for sending sh*t to its limit and beyond so if it was my car I'd send it but I'm the one on the laptop so I get the sh*t when it melts stuff. Still I mean we will just sit here say he is sh*t while pretending we are better tuners and haven't even picked up a laptop a tuned a car...

Just for next time, if you have an iPhone, click on the link, on the bottom right there's a safari logo, click on that and it will open up the link in safari straight away, still new to the whole performance aspect so that's all I have to say

It's nice to know we made the right guess on the GTW3884R turbo haha.

 

So it's this setup ->

https://www.turbobygarrett.com/turbobygarrett/turbochargers/gtw3884r

Super Core Part Number: 841691-5005S (water cooled as per the video showing water lines to the turbo)

CHRA Part Number: 757197-0014

Compressor Inducer: 67mm

Compressor Exducer: 84mm

Compressor Trim: 64

Compressor A/R: 0.70

Turbine Inducer: 74mm

Turbine Exducer: 65mm

Turbine Trim: 76

Turbine A/R: 1.32 (from the video - looks like this GCG product -> linky)

Haha, agreed! :spoton:

 

The worst part:

May I ask why you didn't put forged internals into it?

Lowering the comp ratio on a turbo engine is only to allow detonation free tuning on a specific fuel that is prone to knock. If you are using E85 then leave it as is, compression and turbos are are good combo.

 

That question and answer are not even related haha
