    Smile 99 STS Turbo charged video

    Ok guys, here is a video of clips we shot.

    http://www.nwbassfishing.com/users/m...9sts_turbo.wmv

    Watch how fast the tach climbs. I did the pull in 2nd gear starting about 33-34mph and stoped about 6200 rpm.

    Enjoy

    Damn, that thing flies! I'd hate to hit something ever so lightly in the front, you'd smash up some serious $$$!

    Awesome job btw! I want one for my 2000 STS!

    that thing is fierce !!!

    the only time ive seen a car pull that hard at high speeds, was in that really old video that used to be on the kill section with all the japanese kids surrounding a yota with some sort of rotary engine...you know, the one that they show the kids in the car laughing hysterically when the yota takes off?

    amazing car. very VERY impressive

    I have to ask. Do you have to remove the front fascia every single time you want to drive the car? It would look horrible without the bumper. I cant imagine the aurora like that either, it would be even worse.

    The bumper is off now when we were tunning it, but it will go back on and be completely stealth and stock looking.

    Re: 99 STS Turbo charged video

    just so your wording is right, that is TURBO charged correct? i'm imagining thats why you put that in the lower section of the engine compartment. or rather, front end. pretty ingenious i might add.
    some questions for you, which would supply more low end power, turbo or super? how about high speed? and how about cooling the exhaust, how did you go about that?

    A turbo will always outperform a supercharger both in lower end and upper end. The exhaust is ceramic coated.

    That's a pretty large generalization...

    Usually turbochargers are made to make boost off the line (and fall flat on their face afterwards), or have that "lag" and make high-rpm boost. And everything inbetween is a compromise.

    A supercharger is usually made to make high-rpm boost (like a large "laggy" turbo), however, it doesn't have the off the line lag that a large turbo would have. In essence, it's a large turbo with the spool time of a small turbo. It's the best of all worlds.

    This comes at the expense of power though, since supercharger efficiencies are low, like 50%. Typical turbocharger efficiency is upwards of 80%. At the same boost level, a turbo charger will make more power. In addition, if you go with the large turbo, it's gentler on the transmission because boost builds slowly. A small turbo with instant-off-the-line-torque or a supercharger puts lots of strain on the transmission.

    Mark's is a small turbo correct? That trans is gonna blow I bet. Hey Mark, can you make a new video thats all in car? I wanna see an off-the-line vid at full throttle heh. Your so lucky man.

    All in all, how much did this total project cost including labor?
