high compression = no turbo


Not necessarily. It's not that you can't turbo an engine with higher compression, it just means that it will accept less boost safely. Whereas on a 9:1 compression engine you can go to say 15psi, a 10:1 engine might only get to 7psi before knocking and stuff but will still have a very good power band at 7psi.

I'm just saying.

I saw a 200x lotus elise which comes stock supercharged, getting an
added turbocharger for a super-turbo. When the turbo spooled up after
the supercharger took low end, it was running 10 psi.

Lotus's use a toyota 1.8L 4 banger and the compression ratio is 11.5:1

Higher compression just means the tune has to be done carefully and
with reliable engine management.

Exactly. CR is in a sense the efficiency of the engine and directly affects power. Wouldn't you rather boost an already more-efficient engine than work so much harder just to get a less-efficient one to the same power? A DE would have to get a lot more boost just to catch up to a slightly boosted ZE.

Exactly. Also you're effective compression goes up in relation to the boost, which means you get more HP-per-PSI as the static compression of the motor goes up.

Post Re: Evo_Spec's 1994 RS
umm.......let just go with an update instead of saying something......

so yeah, i have another post but i guess it doesn't hurt to put it here as some progress even though it's not on the car

so i picked up some parts online while i was overseas so i came home to a mound of goodies :D

Image
Image

-full set of floor mats
-B-pillar bar
-rear mudgaurds (even though i have a set on my car -_-)
-2 german hazard switches (even though i have a 94 XD)
-SRD Crossmember
-autozam emblems
-there was something else but it broke in shipping, so i don't really want to talk about it

i also have a bunch i stuff i bought in Taiwan like LED's and MS stuff that i'll take a picture of later.
still need to figure out if i'm buying the BP from MI|<E or if i'm doing something else

Post Re: Evo_Spec's 1994 RS
not much of an update, but i updated my markers and 3rd brake light with LED bulbs

differences between bulbs and LED (hope this video works)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I1DEcu_EDUA
(ignore the sound of my turbo spooling down XD)

i like how LED's are instant on/off, none of that fading shiat =D
