Ok, i have a quick question for you, i have a 94' civic coupe with a jdm 94' h22 swap. It is setup with a T25 garret ball bearing turbo, 2.5in intercooler piping and a precision turbo intercooler. i am currently running 11 psi. I have a h23 tranny with an ACT 6 puck clutch and ACT chromoly flywheel, i dynoed this weekend and only made 197hp and 225tq at the wheels. i know this motor is rated at 200 crank hp from the factory and the turbo should have added at least 88hp. shouldnt i at least be making 255+hp at the wheels? also the car goes really rich when VTEC engages. Any answers or help would be greatly appreciated

boost leak ? and some engines need a once-over every-so-often to keep them in tip-top condition an running well. you said it was 200bhp (ATC) from the factory, dont forget you usually have a 10-15% power loss through trasmission an drivetrain resistance/friction. so you should be gettin 240-260bhp (ATW) as a guess. but otherswise i dont know.

Definently check for a boost leak, and check to see if the injectors popped out. If all that is fine, then get yourself a new turbo. My friend had this exact same thing happen to him. That turbo will give you far more torque than hp, it's too small.

what kind of engine management do you have ?

your boost gauge is reading? your compression results are? your engine management is?

my engine is managed by the V-AFC 2, my compression is good and my boost guage reads 10-11psi, im pretty sure im not leaking boost and my injectors are fine, i was considering that the turbo may be to small.

dont waste your time and money on a t25. ditch the vafc.

Uberdata or chrome and for the turbo.....use something like a t3/t04 .57 trim or anything that's bigger than a little t25! If you want ball bearing an good spool up, get a GT28rs.....
