Re: thats what you asked for wasn't it...

Hey Rex where did you get those numbers for the N/A ZX? All iver ever seen is the #s for the 79-80(81?) models 135 hp cant remember the TQ. I didnt realize they made that much torrue.


I need to get me 82 or 83 motor.

Hp's right.... accel numbers are WAY out to lunch

the auto turbo 280's push about 6.5 0-60 and 14.7 - 15.3 in the 1/4


the 5spd turbos are about 15.5-15.9 in the 1/4

auto turbo times

the automatic transmission lets you keep full boost the whole time. with the manual, you lose revs (and therefore boost) when you shift.

Re: What!!??

Yeah..heltonjk is right..
on the manual.. when you shift.. you lose rpms and while youre doing so.. you lose boost.
on the automatic... there's a sort of blow off valve (correct me if i'm wrong in the description of that thing) that keeps the boost up while the car's shifting.

I suppose you could probably build up the turbo setup.. to not lose as much boost while shifting... with added components and what not... and get the manual shifting version.. as fast... or faster...
but stock.. the auto is faster.
