New cooling setup over the winter on the GT86 Turbo

Dieser Post ist auch verfügbar auf: German

The turbo cooling upgrade on the GT86 is a remarkable step forward. The optimization of the charge air paths and the improvement of the oil cooling are important measures to increase the performance of the vehicle. By using a square intercooler, two meters could be saved, allowing space for two HKS oil coolers.

The successful modifications have resulted in a consistent 400 horsepower output. The attached pictures clearly illustrate the improvements. Radiator flow was greatly improved by this design, which also aids in consistent power delivery.

BRZ / GT86 ultimate Supercharger / Turbo test

Dieser Post ist auch verfügbar auf: German

We packed everything into a test. Since we legally offer the BRZ / GT86 with 3 different types of forced induction, both for the road and for racing, here is the ultimate test on our Dyno. All measured values ​​were driven with a similar boost pressure between 0.6 to 0.7 bar.


BRZ / GT86 Original vs. CR AVO vs. CR Cosworth vs. CR HKS V3

Tested were:

Conclusion:

With our experience of more than 100 built-in kits, we have the right setup for everyone.

  • The CR (Chip-Racing) AVO Turbokit can convince with sheer power and torque, but it only weakens in the lower rpm range if at all.
  • The CR (Chip-Racing) Cosworth supercharger kit uses a screw compressor, which provides pressure from idle. You can tell immediately and as the only kit he always makes pressure and mood. He has weaknesses, if any at the speed end.
  • The CR (Chip-Racing) HKS V3 supercharger kit is easy to handle and makes you happy at the end of the revs. If you like it gently, you are well served here. He has weaknesses in the lower speed range.

Subaru Levorg Tuning: CRTEK2

This week we had our very first Subaru FA16DIT powered car here and were able to start our development for our Subaru Levorg Tuning CRTEK2 to provide the little 1.6 liter engine with some extra horses!

levorg tuning
Levorg Tuning: Subaru FA16DIT

The brand new Subaru 1.6 liter turbo engine features a few huge changes compared to the older EJ engines! Although the FA20 that powers the Subaru BRZ and Toyota GT86 also had some of those improvements, in the new FA16DIT Subaru gone further. Both the FA20 and FA16DIT use a timing chain for the camshaft were the older engines used a timing belt. The FA16 also features a pure direct fuel injection, the FA20 uses mix of both, direct and port injection.

Subaru Levorg Tuning: unknown territory

Being the first EcuTek tuner worldwide to work on the Subaru Levorg with this engine we had to do quite a bit of testing and developing together with EcuTek International.

To start with this unknown ECU we first had to get all the data out of the ECU to develop a so called definition file which makes the data visual! After all the data was sorted out and assigned to the maps we were finally ready for some dynoruns!

Levorg Tuning
EcuTek testing: Levorg Tuning

The baseline showed that the engine is in good shape and produces the power Subaru promises. With our Beta Software and HKS Hi-Power catback exhaust the power gained is pretty good:

green line:        original    167hp / 252Nm

Of course our CRTEK2 will be road legal for Switzerland ASAP! Stay tuned for further info in the near future.

Audi RS6 4.2 Biturbo on our Dyno

This week we had the honor to tune a customers Audi RS6 4.2 Biturbo! We fitted a Milltek Catback and some Wagner Intercoolers!

After the bolt ons the Audi received our CRTEK2 software and got fine tuned on our Dynapack Dyno. The result clearly shows that our CRTEK2 is an amazing upgrade for the Audi RS Models for a moderate price!

In the spotlight: HKS GTII 7460R KAI

Dieser Post ist auch verfügbar auf: German

In the spotlight: HKS GTII 7460R KAI

Tested: HKS GTII 7460R KAI

Imagine: A turbo which spools like your stock turbo but provides enough air for 470hp. That would be awesome, right? Well, that’s exactly what HKS promises with their new GTII Kai turbine. As usual here at Chip-Racing, we don’t always believe what we read so there was no other way for us than order some HKS turbos and test it!

Our test car was our well known Evo IX. Surely the result isn’t 1:1 comparable to a stock 4G63 powered Evo, but it gives an idea how the 7460R KAI performs. We will test a pretty much stock Evo X and a EJ25 powered Subaru STI with the HKS GTII in the near future!

The HKS Kit looked amazing as we opened the box, the turbo itself looks like real quality, just like we know it from HKS! All the necessary hardware, gaskets, oil-lines etc. is included. The GTII fits perfect without any hassle, only the stock lower heat-shield won’t fit anymore due to the bigger sized turbo.

Time for the first start-up. As soon as the car rolled out of the Chip-Racing Workshop we noticed something: This badboy already starts to spool on our 2.2 liter Evo…when parking! You can hear the turbo whistling at around 1500rpm. That was the point we really got exited and couldn’t wait any longer to strap it onto our Dynapack! After just a few pulls it was clearly to see that the new HKS GTII has quiet a big potential!  Just to name the numbers: 474hp, 692Nm. Our testcar’s specs can be found here.

Our verdict

We here at Chip-Racing absolutly love the new HKS GTII! After a Testdrive it was even clearer: this turbo transforms your evo into the ultimate response machine, the torque from low rpm’s and the high rpm power makes this thing fly! We highly recommend the HKS GTII to anyone who wants to attack mountain passes, the autobahn, the racetrack..pretty much for any application up to 470hp!

what a beauty

Dynosheets from our 350Z TT and 370Z SC online

We are doing quiet a lot of testing during these cold long winternights. Recently we’ve had two pretty interesting cars on our inhouse Dynapack Dyno! One is the Chip-Racing Nissan 370Z Supercharched which we introduced at the 2011 “Auto Zürich”, the other one is it’s older brother, the Nissan 350Z Twin Turbo we’ve build a few years ago. Both cars proofed their qualities on our Dynapack by outputting awesome numbers, as well as on the road! Amazing power with an almost untouchable driveability! Another amazing fact is, that we have tested the 370Z Supercharger Kit in combination with our CRTEK and can now sell it with a DTC homologation to make this setup streetlegal!
