Powerhouse Turbo Installed!!!!

Thatís right, you read it correctly!!! The 1st powerhouse customer unit is installed in my car, and the 2nd unit is installed in Excepcion13ís car!!!!! We are at powerhouse right now waiting for them to wrap up Excepcion13ís dyno tune.

About a month ago, I heard Mike was looking for a automatic for the first turbo install to document the install. Well I looked up the location, and they were about 6 hours from me in DC, though Iím originally from PA. So I called Mike @ Powerhouse for the free install deal and my luck held true, he needed an auto. In fact, he needed 3 cars, and I figured, hell, I should call Robert (Excepcion13) and convince him turbo was the way to go, which didnít take much! LOL.

So, two weeks ago, we drove our stangs up to Girard PA (right outside of Erie) and drove a rental back down. Today, two weeks later we are finally picking up our cars. We just didnít get Turboís though, check out the list of mods on this massive trip:

Excepcion13

ē Powerhouse Turbo @ 8 PSI w/Intercooler
ē Powerhouse UCA
ē Powerhouse LCA
ē Powerhouse Panhard Bar & Brace

Rygen

ē Powerhouse Turbo @ 8 PSI w/Intercooler
ē Boost Gauge
ē H20 Temp Gauge (switching out for a electronic AF wideband once Powerhouse gets it in)
ē Powerhouse UCA

Now, we wonít be able to post dynoís and track slips for about a week. We may hit the 1/8th track Wednesday night to get some preliminary slips. Also keep in mind Powerhouse uses a Mustang dyno. So, we should be back home in about 8 hours time, at that time I will post some final mustang dyno numbers, or call one of the board members to post them as my laptop battery is dying!

Man, I canít wait to go to the track!!!! Iím dying to get Stella on the track, the wait is killing me!!!!

Also, here are some pics for you guys, more to come along with videos. Enjoy!!!

Jesus man that car just keeps getting better. What did you do with the nitrous? Are you gonna spray it with the turbo to cool the temps down?

Thanks man. I appreciate that.

I'm really not sure yet, I want the car to last so I don't think I want to go with a dual setup. The car makes tons of power with the turbo, I'm leaning towards getting rid of the nitrous. I don't think I need it any more. Part of the evolution I guess.

i don't think he was referring to direct cylinder injection with the nitrous, i think he was talking about intercooler fogging... you rig a nitrous hose to spray on your intercooler core, which will help cool your induction charge. cooler air = more hp.. plus a cooler intake charge will reduce temperatures to safer levels... helpful with turbo applications; 70,000+ rpm turbos create a lot of heat

Re: Powerhouse Turbo Installed!!!!

Wow, that's great. I'll be looking forward to seeing your numbers.

I would however, strongly recommend hanging on to the Nitrous set up. Buy a nice little IC fogger and you can add even more hp to the car as is AND keep the car running MUCH cooler thus prolonging the life of the motor. To me it's a win win situation except for the cost of the fogger, which you could probably fab one up yourself for pretty cheap.

If I had the opportunity to N2o fog my IC, I would have that stuff on so fast it would make your head spin...so if you do want to get rid of it, I call dibs!

Ah, I have heard of that. I will have to give it some thought. Here are the preliminary numbers:

-My Auto @ 8.5lb of boost: 299rwhp/348rwtq on a mustang dyno
-Roberts manual @ 9.5lb of boost: 328rwhp/366rwtq on a mustang dyno

Wow, thats a 2nd one for spraying on the IC, now I have to re-think this.

Cant really compare nitrous to a turbo. The turbo has a wider powerband, so it pulls harder on the 2nd half of the 1/4. Also, my TQ curve is still really close, with the nitrous, it was 362 and with the turbo, I am at like 350.

The proof will be in the track times.

Your track times will be much better with the turbo.

Re: Powerhouse Turbo Installed!!!!

Fogging the IC with nitrous is actually a waste of money. Use C02 if anything, its much cheaper, and is just as cold.

If you were to jet your nitrous down to say a 50-shot, youd see some significant gains, more than 50 horsepower seeing as nitrous will cool down the intake temps significantly, even futher than the intercooler would. Cold intake temps help a forced induction car much more than an N/A car.

But as long as he already has the equipment, he might as well use it as to just get rid of it.
