Here is something not so recent but quite a decent build that Danny, Phil and I put together.

2002 GDB STI with a 2.5L EJ257 (sleeved and built by Phil Lowe, Eagle Rods, ARP headstuds, Mahle Pistons, stock 02 STI heads) / Kando TD06h-20G / Hyperflow FMIC / Silicon intake / Tbear 3" TBE / POD with a top end of 248 kw atw or more importantly incredible midrange - 20 psi by 3000 rpm and 200 kw @ 3750 rpm when tuned it to 24 psi. Street tuned to run 28 psi on 98RON, Danny's knock headphones gave amazing ability to get the best out of the tune without risking damage to the engine.

This resulted in an extremely streetable daily driver. When put on the skid pan the outcome was quite amazing and unexpected. Needless to say the tyres needed replacing:

Even though the car was purely a midrange monster it still was able to perform nicely at the drags coming home with 12.2 @ 113 mph.

Cheers mate.

Danny also had a huge amount to do with the tuning of my track car. He tuned the stock 1992 old EG33 powerplant to 325 kw atw which is probably a world record for that stock engine - mainly because no-one was mad enough to try it lol. On the day we thought it would only hit 250 kw atw but it easily cleared 300 kw and would've kept going cept we thought we'd quit while we were ahead. Up to that point (16 psi) it was jumping around ~15 kw per psi. Pistons + rods should be good for 20 psi stock, just needs some cams so stay tuned.

Anyway video as per signature when the car was at Winton running 10 psi.

This was one of the lower boost plots.

What's the safe rotational speed of the EG33? Is it running out of cam just after 5,000rpm or do they only rev to 6k or so?

Stock... 7000+. Stock cams just weren't designed for turbos and > 500 hp.

This gives you an idea of what cams will do:

Yes I have seen Andy's car but hadn't seen a cabin video of the tacho. It revs pretty sweet, I wonder what was done to achieve that or do they rev that freely from standard?

DIY engine ftw

Although for anyone interested, Danny can get these built inhouse @ Springy.
