    Hella JDM claims 175 TQ.. not sure if that's to the wheels or not. I believe he only has CAI, Downpipe and Tune for power. Maybe that same setup with Buddy Club pullies (not sure what these do), RBC swap & lightweight wheels will get up to 190TQ on the top end of RPM range?

    torque are much harder to improve on.... i got 170lbs of tq on my stage 3 power package

    light weight pulley, light weight flywheel, knife edge crank shaft, light weight rotors, light weight tires, light weight wheels are all rotational weight reduction...

    example, run with a heavy, 19oz combat boots and switch to a 8oz nike flynet, which one will make you run faster ? that is same effect with rotational weight reduction... you use less energy to spin/rotate the parts/cars = more power

    The torque rating is not a good way to measure power. BMEP is more accurate. I doubt it will make power then its already rated with out power adders(turbo,etc) and extensive engine work. Honda already is tuned very good and bolt ons dont do much except personalize your vehicle. It might add a pound of torque here and there but its still limited by the engine size and fuel quality(knock) and the percentages would be very small. More fuel equals more heat and more friction which lowers HP. Raising VE by using better fuel lowers the stress on the engine and makes more consistent power by using all the fuel. Here is a better explanation I found. WHY BMEP, WHY NOT JUST TORQUE OR HP?

    the rule of thumb of how engine makes hp is for every 150cfm the engine flows, it generate 100hp...

    it's why cte supercharger is always average around 300whp because M62 is rated at 460cfm with 10psi boosts


    stock k24z7 engine flows in the ball park of 300cfm (at 7000rpm)... you can make more than 200whp if your able to operate at a higher rpm (8000rpm)


    now, if your able to reduce the load of the engine with parts like light weight pulley, flywheels, rims, tires, rotors... these will free up power.. becuase you now use less energy to move the vehicle


    you can make cars fast without "making power" just like swimmers can swim faster with better suits (speedo LZR)

    To make that kind of torque naturally aspirated, you're probably looking at different pistons. Think upwards of 12:1 compression.

    I made 202whp and 180wtq in my current setup (custom 3.5" CAI, 3" PLM DP, ported stock mani). But I won't make it 200 wheel tq without f/I
