    For everybody wondering what the GTX2860R GEN2 was capable of with our 10th Gen Civic 1.5T Big Turbo Kit, we managed to put down 403 horsepower and 420 ft/lb torque today. We're still on the small .64 A/R turbine housing, stock ECU with @KTuner and MS100 race gas. Who's excited to see how much further we can push things with the .86 A/R larger turbine housing?! Keep in mind that this is one of the smallest turbochargers compatible with our kit. :thumbsup: This same setup made 340ish horsepower last week on 93 octane pump gas for the record.

    Little update on our turbo kit build with the shop Civic. This shows the potential that someone could feasibly do with our smallest options on the turbo kit and internals on the stock ECU. First night out on this setup laying down an 11.46 at 123.25mph and a best of 1.62 sec 60ft! Quite impressive for a small displacement economy car.

    Our Current 2017 Honda Civic Si Setup:
    -Stock ECU with KTuner (Custom Tuned by PRL Motorsports)
    -Stock Fuel System with no secondary source; running MS100 race fuel
    -Clutchmasters Twin Disc Clutch
    -GTX2860R GEN2 with the small .64 A/R turbine housing
    -CNC Werx CSS Cylinder Block
    -Brian Crower Rods
    -JE Pistons 73.5mm Bore and 10.3:1 Compression
    -Brian Crower Spring and Retainer Kit
    -Front Belak 13x9 with 8.7/25x13 M&H's

    Here's a cold start vid of mine, with the gtx2860r.
    Disclaimer.. my exhaust is a little noisy.

    This turbo kit is amazing!

    I'm interested in this answer as well. I'll be more specific though.
    2018 Hatchback CVT
    PRL Cobra Intake (Race Maf)
    PRL Downpipe
    Ktuner Stage 2 base map

    Just plopping in this turbo upgrade (With your attached downpipe included), what kind of power difference can be expected......at the horsepower max?
    I'm not interested in midrange torque. ONLY top end. Was browsing to find people with this upgrade on a CVT but no luck...yet (Still looking). I'm running Ktuner Stage 2 base map with your Cobra Intake and Race Maf. Thanks!

    This is right up my alley then. Again, my midrange is completely fine. Don't want or care for all the extra/instant torque I've been seeing in the dyno graphs. Not needed. Just peak hp beyond the 5000rpm point and especially at the 6000rpm (Where torque is falling off dramatically). This is where my car's engine rpm will be the full time I go wide open throttle. Thanks!

    There are currently a few CVT turbo upgrades in the wild that are pushing around 300hp with a boost by gear calibration. This is to help prevent the CVT belt from slipping and damaging the transmission. These customers have been running these set ups for a few months now :)
