26 PSI RX-7 GT35R Single Turbo
Ever wonder what happens if you hit fuel cut at 26 PSI on a turbo RX-7? Watch me do it on accident while
For those wondering, I had the ECU set to 20 PSI expectation and wastegate
to 26 PSI. ECU will go 3.5 PSI over its limits before it cuts the fuel.
Small logical error can make a huge difference.
I got lucky. I attribute a large part of that to the pre turbo water injection keeping my knock low and
combustion temps low while tuning.
Why I picked the GT35R for my RX-7 over the stock twin turb
I cover the basics of turbochargers in
simple terms to explain why I chose the GT35R over T04Z or T78 or T88 etc.
It's all about air flow. Sure there are technologies that make the turbo more efficient in more applications but
the turbo is most efficient in an area
known as the compressor map.
Exhaust back pressure plays a huge
part when dealing with quick spool small turbos.
Large turbos deal with spool up and lag
I chose the GT35r for near stock spool up with more efficient 400 hp
7500rpm on my single turbo RX-7
Flame away. I totally misshift my first pull. The second pull I hit the
overly rich area in my map. I can't give it full throttle. lol. Then the
good pulls. Enjoy
I crashed my Lamborghini
I never wanted to make this video. I crashed my 2001 Lamborghini Diablo
6.0. I have plenty of pictures scattered throughout the video.
I'm disappointed that after 2 years of owning it, and many years of
handling high powered RX-7s that I lost control of my baby.
Be careful when it rains.
Water injection installed and operational
My 1993 rx7 has a fully operational preturbo water injection system installed! I have to
install an inline fuse for the solenoid but it's amazing!
I'm running 15 psi until I install my 3 bar sensor.
My GT35R RX-7 sounds sexy ran hard
I finally took my 1993 Mazda RX-7 out. Over winter I gutted the entire
engine bay etc. I installed a GT35R single turbo. The car is insane. Listen as I Boost to 10.5PSI.
It does NOT have a Blow Off Valve installed :-p
