Thought id share with you my results from my tts rotrex race kit. Got offered 15% off and as i was saving for one anyway i jumped at the chance.
Well happy with the results 418 bhp at the wheels apparently the acceleration is savage, 1st and 2nd just spins the ad08r's up but once you get into third its controllable. Its running 14 psi of boost on a stock engine with a stage 4 comp clutch. http://
The red is the power run before the charger just running flashpro and gruppe m mapped by cpl it was making 236 bhp at the fly

i haven't stopped smiling since i picked it up, the look on people's faces when you fly past them is priceless. it's on a whole different level now, but as others have said who own charged fd2's it feels like it could handle more power.
would of been dissapointed with a jackson or supersport kit for the money it cost.

very impressive power mate, hope you enjoy it! :D

my only reservation is that is a lot of power and boost on a stock bottom end so be careful! (I dont mean to be a killjoy but I wouldnt want to see you blow the bottom end!

Wow great results mate, awsome power at less than 1 bar boost. Hope you have some dry weather to use and abuse it :top:

Nicely done, got similar power here, 417.xx at the wheels on TTS rollers, only at 9psi though on a kraftwerks c30-94. Hellish fast and brings a smile to my face all the time, I can only imagine your grin being just the same :)

how is that possible? and why dont you run a bit more boost? had a quick look through your thread and looks a nice build but cant quite figure your engine spec

Got a boost gauge to fit today and not quite sure were to plumb the vacuum line in. Been so long since ive had a car with boost.


Was going to plumb it in to the hose coming off the blow off valve as it runs into the side of the inlet manifold and then what seems to be the power steering pump? Didnt know if plumbing in to this would affect how the valve works or not.

That's an odd one as I'd of thought any excess boost would be wasted unless it's pre recirc/blow off? (Assuming it makes a difference). Nice looking gauge though :)

had 3 little sessions on cadwell at modified live on saturday. usually a fan of open pitlane but at cadwell sessions seem to work well because of the tight layout of the circuit ? any way had probably the best session ever , the car was untouchable an absolute hooligan on track. ive done caddy before in dc5 but in the fd it was way more a buzz with the boost. the fd2 is so forgiving and neutral in handling it makes easy work on a very technical circuit. wanted to take it easy out there so set my boost warning at12 psi which meant i was shifting around 7000 rpm and when needed i would rev to 8500 hitting 14 psi. im needing better cooling for water and oil and bigger brakes will be on the shopping list soon. i didnt have no fade as i changed fluid last week but i wasnt too heavy with the late braking either. runing on ad08r's at 27 front and 24 rear once warmed up gave loads of confidence. learnt so much from the day from the driving and talking to the drivers afterwards it was an absolute belter of a day. got a chance to speak to the race mad jprocter with his highly strung fd time attack car. dude if i had the cash id be doing the same thing with mine its the best drug ever. might see you at silverstone.
any way link to my last sesh of the day , wasate getting to the grid and started last overtook 15 cars including a drag race down the main straight with a bmw m5 and won. so anyone wondering how a rotrex fd2 goes on track taking it easy here is your answer. enjoy.

Thanks guys, my best lap time was a 1:50 , if i had forged engine , bigger brakes and slicks etc i could push a lot harder and use it to its full potential. But even as it is its amazing on track. Had a lot people coming over to check what's under the bonnet.
My mate in the black eg was on the grass on the entry to barn nearly causing a pile up , his cars quick with a k swap full cage etc.
any way i thought i was quick till i saw the in car from this. Roger clarks gobstopper 2 beating the lap record of rob haslams superbike time. 1st car ive seen get airborne on the mountain, this car is insane and built to a level iv'e never seen before.

think its about 1000hp. a very special car that.
cadwell is an awesome track my local and my favourite. in a stock type-r it can be frustrating on a couple of corners as in 2nd and 3rd gear choice with the small vtec window you get, but if you have hondata and vtec set at 5000 rpm 3rd gear should be good enough for them. the mountain, barn and mansfield were a pain in my stock dc5 but fantastic in my fd2.
