    Just test drove an SRI turbo...........

    Im hooked!!!

    Its the first i have driven of the turbo variety.........it had a dump valve,induction kit, S/S exhaust system and sounded and drove lovely!

    im not sure what sort of power it would be running with the above mods, can anyone hazard a guess?

    difficult to guess really without knowing more -
    would say maybe 200 - 210?? but that really is a stab in the dark?

    Dump valve = no power gain
    S/S exhaust & precat = approx 5%-10% gains
    Induction kit = approx -5% losses in torque, due to excess heat induction

    As T-Bone said, probably about 210 bhp. That ought to hold you for about a month, then you will get used to it and want more

    your probably right mate but jumping from a 75bhp saxo to an SRI turbo did feel like a huge jump anyway!


    the sounds etc!! 10 out of 10 for smiles per mile!

    what is the best dump valve power pipe kit to go for...........ive just been looking at the regal kit.......about 280quid for pipe dump valve etc........which is what this car had i think.

    is there a specific one that is the dogs bollocks or are they all a bit of a muchness? as long as the d/v is loud i would be happy!
