Yeah same i had a gsr and everything was so easily accessible. And really numbers seem to fluctuate but if i can get another 10whp and 6wtq up top id be happy. Yeah the previous owner ragged on it, bad wheel bearings, clutch was slipping had a couple oil leaks so they sent it to auction. Just goes to show cosmetically the car was great but mechanically it was crap
When you getting that bad boy tuned?

Following. Ive read so many conflicting things this past month about the RBC not being needed on a set up with mild bolt-ons. Be interesting to see your numbers and power curve.

All dynos are different but will see what it does at the track after its tuned. Ive seen people gain 1-2mph in trap speed so will see

Ok so here are my thoughts and opinions for the rbc swap. Low to mid range power feels strong as it did before the manifold. I honestly feel no difference and surely feel no less power while driving around town. The top end is a dream the car definitely has a stronger pull and im actually making more torque than i was too in the top end. Peak torque actually comes in earlier too than before right around 4700rpm where as before it was 5500 rpm but the rbc seems to hold it better throughout the top end. Before by redline i was at 140wtq now im just shy of 150wtq. In the new graph you can see the slight dip in the 2k rpm range but this in everyday driving is not even noticeable at least to me lol my butt dyno says its fine lol the sound that comes from the engine now especially induction and vtec is much more pro dominate now it really screams when youre going through the gears. My smiles per miles has increased greatly lol honestly before when doing pulls it would feel like it was running out of steam by 7500 rpm since i made max power at 7200 but now it doesnt feel that way at all. My vtec engagement is set lower too before it was at 4k rpm bot its at 3.5k and that seemed to have gave me a much smoother and better powerband through the crossover. Its only been a few hours but so far im very very happy with this setup
