Working with RV6 to see what’s up. I had the engine looked over to make sure it broke in well and is running good. Motor got the all clear so not sure where we should go from here I wanna give RV6 a chance to see if we can squeeze more out of it
Just seen this on another thread about pulling the abs fuse while on Dyno,could this have happened to you?

W1 does have its issues and the biggest one is after a while the turbine housing cracks 27won only offers a 1 year warranty and the crack always happens between the wastegate and turbine so be aware of that I have attached pics of my W1 after 8 months of use

That's disappointing :( I have no flex fuel so going too big on a drop-in turbo doesn't make sense to me.

@RV6 When this turbo hits the market, would there be plans to do a combo deal with the downpipe & frontpipe? I've been impressed with your products on some Acuras in the past, so really hoping to get all 3 of these parts for the Si!
We do not plan on doing any combos. However you can always PM me for a deal.

Before I was gapping stage 2 type R’s now they pull me in 4th so this setup is slower, if we can get the turbo to light off sooner like 3200-3500 then it would probably be faster but the turbo doesn’t light off until 4500 sooo....
I don't think the point of RV6 turbo is to spool like the W1, but rather to deliver more top-end, especially when you are not fuel-limited.
According to DRob the R365 is about 300RPM more laggy VS the W1. However the W1s literally have to spin their guts out in order to max out the OE fuel system. With bigger wheels the R365 does not have to spin as fast to fully utilize the OE fuel system. This makes for a more reliable turbo. It also leaves a bit of head room for those that want to run meth.

Something is wrong with your tune if it’s not boosting until 4500. Mine is blasting at 3200.

This is happening from improper tuning. One thing Eman always had an issue with Hondata is that their base tunes run you lean which is true. This lean running is causing the excessive heat which is causing that cracking.

Sorry for being ghost fellas. I’ve received my fp/dp from @RV6 thank you Rich! I’m waiting on the delivery of my new remark exhaust and then have everything installed and finally get dyno measured.
I just got over covid 19 and am currently going through respiratory rehab due to the damage from it. So I’m not working and money is tight. But once everything comes back together I’ll be more active again.
Best of luck to you guys.

Do you have a datalog to review
Not at this time I just updated my hondata manager last night and got the okay from my doctor today that I can go outside. But on my tune I turned on increase turbo response and it dropped the spool time from mid to high 3k to pulling hard by 3500

Installed the rv6 dp and fp this afternoon. That freed up the turbo immensely! Third gear rolling at 3k part throttle to full throttle and got mad tire spin. Unfortunately my remark exhaust won’t be available until late February. So waiting on that but I have to schedule a dyno appointment.
