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.
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.
So if its tuned right i can run 350-400hp for the street???!!! What kind of turbo setup? Greddy? How much boost? Thanks for the help bro, cant friggin wait!
