Maybe I am confused. I thought that the ports on the wastegate were there to add override pressure, thus allowing more boost to be made. I thought that leaving the hoses off would cause the internal spring pressure of the wastegate to be used, and thus operate the system at the minimum power configuration.

I got spun around in my head too. Those nipples on top of the red wastegates you see are the Actuator ports. Pressure is applied from the charge pipe (or other presurized area) and fed into that, as i approaches a boost level that creates more pressure than the spring, it slowly begins to open. Without pressure going to those, it will just continue to spin up. Those ports put simply, let the wastegate know the boost level. Boost pressure against the wastegate does nothing, its all about how much pressure is against the actuator.

Classic example of engine technology leaping ahead of tire technology. Although 700rwhp is amazing, you'll only be able to use a little over 1/2 that power due to traction.

In LSR, the big 600+rwhp Turbo's have to dial down the boost to 400-450rwhp just to stop the wheel from spinning in 6th gear at 220-240mph. They dial down the boost even further in the earlier gears.

Some people even add loads of lead weights on the swingarm to help traction so they can add more boost without breaking loose.... but with 700rwhp, it may as well make 7,000rwhp because you'll never get that power to the ground.

I'm still trying to find if the guy at Daytona bike week with a ZX11 that made 589hp at the dyno shootout was able to break the national 710hp unlimited turbo bike record set in Valdosta about 4 years ago. He was putting the bike back on the dyno on friday looking for 750hp but I had to leave. I will try and find out and pot the results.

seems kinda funny that they are not using real life hp numbers. all the hp claims they are using is based on what garrett says the turbo's hp range is, not what the kit actually produces. hows that for R and D?

She's loose one night, tight the other is that a wet dream or wee-wee riding a foul lick symbol?

450 or 750 is 450 is better than 200hp is who's counting numb beers. I'd do her!
