stock motor??? I thought stock sleeves can only handle 11 psi at most? And what about running 18psi on 11:1 CR?? Uhmmm I think they aren't telling the whole story. And even if it was stock, how long would that motor really last anyway. I think what they really meant is : "stock" motor. hehehehe

P.S. Impressive numbers though. :up:

Its all in the tuning. There is no set limit of what the stock sleeves, pistons, or rods can handle (atleast not yet).

I tuned the car. The engine has never been apart except to tap the oil pan. All stock internals. The car has been running on 400-430whp on pump gas for about a month of hard abuse. the compression is solid across the engine. Its a very fun car to drive.

And i watched...But seriously I was shocked and amazed that we made that 515whp, even when we started getting up into the 480's i started to think to myself this is crazy. Oh well what can i say except that we will definitly be ready for clash of the titans next weeknd :driving:

First of all, thank you guys for posting.. I remember reading about stoopid a long time ago in honda tuning magazine. In the US, there are only 3-4 people that can do what these guys can do.

Congratulations on this.. It is a major achievement and helps the K series movement one step further. As you guys know, in all motor the K shows clearly why it is a better choice but in FI applications, it is not as clear... Well, not anymore...

My guess is that the K series heads have a lot to do with this result. The chambers seem to take a lot of abuse.

Any idea when the IPS cams will be going in?

I was saying most people are scared to try and I am to test a motor's reliablity like this. Hope your R & D proves the strength of the K series motor under boost and its reliablity.

What! That sounds like something you would hear form The Old One ( Endyn). That much hp would push the rods right off the crank.

They were installed over the weekend and tuned tonight. Look for Jason's post when he can get online. I haven't even seen the results yet, just got word on the phone.

Hi i'm a brand new member. My girlfriend and i are trading in our Matrix for Type S in couple months. In all my research over the past few months, i've never seen any numbers remotely close to these. That much power on stock internals is insane, how is it possible? With tuning yes, but how can stock honda rods and pistons handle that??? I'm stumped. please level with me, is it really possible to get that kind of power from the stock motor?? If so, Daaaaamn i'm in for some fun in couple months! Thanks for your response, i need the advice!

Its not power or boost that breaks an engine. Its cylinder pressure and temperature that causes failures. If you control those factors the engine can live making quite a bit of power. The car was tuned extremely conservatively. If we were to tune more aggressively the car would make a LOT more power but would break due to the higher cylinder pressures.

Awesome info. :up:

This is why I always say tuning is the most important part of a turbo setup.
