    With the Si turbo curious to see if the cvt longevity will take a hit. I pulled the trigger on the 27won as it puts less stress on the trans down low which should in theory help.

    I was thinking about some 'Myxal Math' last night and was thinking again about the 'restrictive' blades on the hot side of the turbo. Let's say for instance that since the car makes 174hp and is pushing at the turbo hot side that if there were no blades that there would be no restriction. How much of a 'restriction' would each of the 11 turbo hot side blades account for. 174/11 (blades) = Each blade would be responsible for 15.8hp a piece. So let say that by removal of a blade, you can theoretically increase horsepower by 15.8 per blade removed, how much hp would removing 2 of the 11 blades equal (15.8 X 2 = +32hp). :D I'm just goofing off. Nothing going on in this forum these days anyways. :bump:

    Did a couple runs today to test out the Si Turbo and Si Turbo Inlet. Making baby steps but the car is a little quicker. And low-midrange drivability is much improved. Will have car tuned for the Si turbo two weeks from now. I don't expect much from the new tune but perhaps some cleaning up of anything that may be off. Kinda like defragmenting your computer. :)
