Anyone interested? Tony was able to do it with ease, check the link below. Just fantastic! Video has been up for 3 weeks and has over a million views. So many expressing praise for these cars. Giddy Up!
Not hard to believe! I'm surprised that they didn't take into account that 15 lbs boosted air with out a intercooler of sorts would expand the aluminum block to crazy high temps once they get into the throttle for any prolonged time. I had a 97 Chevy Tahoe 2 door 6.5 turbo diesel that GM didn't equip with an intercooler. What a worthless set up!!! As soon as you get any kind of boosted air into the engine, the Exhaust gas temps would jump up so fast that the ECM would cut fuel to the injectors to cool the engine down. And there went any of that extra power! What a dog of an engine that was. Compressing air with an exhaust turbo is exactly the opposite of a "cold" air intake. I remember the guy had mentioned an intercooler once from what I remember but didnt put one in for the dyno run. I'm guessing the track run was with out also?
From what I understood in the video, boost was set @ 10 psi but somehow it jumped up to 15 psi during the run. I'm sure with some patience & more tuning/refining, the MK VIII is just fine with boosted power.
