STOCK TRANS, STOCK TURBO, AND STAGE IIs

What do you all think about it. My tranny is still doing ok and my turbo is still ok. I was just wondering how many people have seen it done and how long there tranny or turbo lasted for with this setup.

Re: STOCK TRANS, STOCK TURBO, AND STAGE IIs

I switched to 175cc injectors and my clutch was okay (fabric) but my turbo only lasted 3 months at the 32ish pounds of boost it was running.

I've seen the old TP38 go for a long, long time at the same boost though, so who really knows for sure.

Either way, good luck.

I will bet they will both go out at the same time.

How long has your turbo and trans been going for with that set up? How much HP/TQ are you pushing out also?

Re: STOCK TRANS, STOCK TURBO, AND STAGE IIs

Been chipped for about 25,000
Injectors for around 13,000
Oil + Injectors for 10,000

Calculator says 380 RWHP based on my MPH, but that was with a shifting issue on the 1-2 and at elevation (5800ft - 11,000 DA) If I pull a couple more MPH with the shifting issue, and better track conditions I'll be right around 400.

I won't tell you your setup will last 5 minutes with stock turbo, tranny but mine has so far.

At least 50-60 boosted launches, numerous sled pulls, towing 24,000+ cross country.

1.0 exhaust housing for the turbo, and a new torque converter & valve body for the trans if you're gonna try it.

Even then you're on borrowed time.

Re: STOCK TRANS, STOCK TURBO, AND STAGE IIs

Maddog 160cc stage IIs wiped out trans in six weeks without burning rubber. 1.0 housing on OBS TP-38 with BTS/MD stage IIs/399.8 hp/stock muffler was still going strong at 80K miles of abuse. Then added Terminator, SD fuel pump/regulated return and 4" exhaust and turbo still lasted (at about 420+ hp) until me left housing bolts loose so it ate itself. Replacement OBS 1.0 TP-38 still running good. So, who knows for sure? Next turbo will do better though.
