[DML] Re: Turbo Question



The turbo itself is only a part of the whole turbo installation. The
amount of horsepower the whole installation can generate is a function
of the way it is installed and set up. It is certainly possible to
generate this much AND MORE. The problem is you get into issues like
longevity and "The Weakest Link" problem. The transmission will not be
able to handle that amount of power without EXTENSIVE modifacations as
well as the motor. Creating enough boost (pressure) to get that kind
of horsepower will blow up the stock motor quickly unless it was also
extensively modified. Most turbo installations limit the amount of
boost (and horsepower) to 5 lbs on an unmodified (stock internals)
motor. This gets you from around 130 HP to around 190 HP. Martin Turbo
did not make the turbo, they only installed it. If you look closer at
the turbo you should find another name if it was not removed or maybe
it's under the label. Martin Turbo is probably the shop that installed
it and maybe they can get you more information (if they are still in
business).
