RE: [DML] Re: Turbos, transmissions etc



Marc,

You are right...Fred did say 300HP. We can't always be right David!

 As for your question #502 does not have electronic boost control but #530
does. It will be interesting to compare the two when I finally get 530
running again.
That won't be for some time as my intention is to finish the full
restoration of 502 over the winter and spring in time for the next Ken-Show.

Rob Grady,

Fred said there was a 300HP limit on the trans..  200
may be a typo..

I wonder if Martin has the same typo when he said
200HP was the max out of a Turbo PRV??  DMCH claims to
get 190+HP on their normally aspirated engines.. 
Turbo charger seems like a lot of work for an extra
10HP.

In my conversations with Fred, he said the Legend
engines could exceed 300HP but they had transmission
problems if they went much higher.  They were also
experimenting with electronic boost control (I think
502 may have it, Rob can comment on it).  One can
assume the electronic boost control would be used to
bring the boost on slowly to help eliminate damage to
the transmission while not sacrificing top-end
performance.
