I have a 92 Daytona with 2.5 turbo1. The Turbo went in it, and I got a rebuilt Mitsu T1 from Fwdperformance. After some thought, and knowing the motor itself was pretty tired. I decided to put a new motor in the car, and fully restore it. (I just love the car, and have had turbo daytonas, since I was 17) I wanted to make it fairly stock, but strong. Since I had a new T1 turbo, I was'nt going to go crazy with alot of boost, or intercooler, but wanted to bump horsepower up around 205. So I got a 2.5 Shortblock from Fwd. Then got a stage 1 ported G head, or (bathtub) head. the F2 cam 260 dur/467 lift and roller rockers. Ported 1 piece intake, 804 injectors and billet fuel rail. The exhaust already on the car is 2.5 downpipe, hi flow catco converter, 2.5 inch pipes and a dynomax ultraflow muffler. I got a stage 3 calibration ECU from Fwd. I have a g-valve, and am going set boost at around 10.5 psi, knowing that you don't want to go over 12 or 13 psi on a non-intercooled turbo. My question is do you believe that this is a good engine combo? Any guess as to power numbers? Do you think this will make my 200hp goal? Any tips or advice. All advice is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

You can go all the way to 14.5 on that mitsu without intercooling it. If you want the best outcome, get a meth injection kit to help with the cooling. Just make sure you run super 92-93 octane.
I say at the very least put a stock t2 radiator intercooler setup, going front mount is best but will cost $500-600 or so doing it right.

it is VERY EASY to install an IC, especially in cars without he flip up headlamps. And yes as said before, you can run a solid 14.5psi easily on a mitsu.

Purchase a new cal from cindy!

Any guess as to horsepower with the mods I've already made?
i don't know the numbers your looking for but i KNOW you'll be happy with the setup. I beat mine to a blown head gasket (been in TD's for 2 years and have performed at least 5 maybe a few more) and she just keeps coming back. I went with stock t2 radiator/ic +20's and big boost...left the other people going :eek:HOLY SH1T:eek: did that just really happen?
