Q&A regarding engines, turbos, and intercoolers and power upgrades

hp with stock block and new intake/exhaust

Postby reaper0995 » Mon Jan 10, 2005 9:30 pm

I have a '92 alltrac and was wondering if I were to have 3in exhaust custom header, front mount intercooler, and cold air intake, what kind of hp would I most likely be able to make? If I were to have that and cams, what then? Any other suggestions of modifications that would help a lot? stock turbo as well

You won't go far with stock turbo.
250hp give or take.
No fuel upgrading?
How much boost are you planning to run?

Take it to a dyno. Estimating horsepower is, simply put, something ricers do.

Actually, estimating horsepower is the right way to go about a project. You just have to do it the right way. Look at all the professional builders. They always set out a plan for desired hp and do the research and testing for the right combination of parts.

I'd say you could squeez around 250 maybe if you went up a couple pounds of boost. You would be at the limits of your fuel and flirting with danger though.

i would say to not be so optimistic when talkin about estimated horsepower.
so you never get disapointed.

i would estime around 250-260hp with those mods... maybe 15-20 more with cams, but id change for a bigger turbo instead of cams... changing cams take bigger benefits when you already have more mods.
