Icon5 Car has no torque?

Hi I have a 88 si b20a5 155k my friend has a 89si 4ws raced him n he beat my ass but my car feels really doggy exp in low rpm or if I dump it it like wants to not rap the rpm it's like it a hued heavy flywheel or something ... But I have another b20a5 head ported the head and custom fit b18 intake cam I'm hoping this helps me with some power ... Any ideas y my car is so slow lol?

Re: Car has no torque?

your motor could just be a bit more wore out than his, but more often than not with racing the same type of car it comes down the driver and who knows their car better..

Re: Car has no torque?

if it was me and i had another block i would just start from scratch and build it how you want to off the rip and just keep it how it is untill you get your motor/turbo set up how you want it then drop it all in at once, it would save a lot of downtime and money in the long run over piecing and parting things together!

Re: Car has no torque?

What kind of race did you run? That would be a driver's race, given that both have the same engine (assuming both are 5 speed), and if both cars were new. He would be at a slight disadvantage in a drag race because the 4ws model is heavier than the 2ws model, but may have an advantage on a road course if he is used to the 4ws system. But with 23 or 24 year old cars, all that goes out the window. It really depends on the condition of the engines.

Keep in mind on the engine you're building that you won't be able to really take advantage of that b18 camshaft unless you convert to OBD1 so that you can tune for it. Otherwise you won't see much of a gain with it.

Re: Car has no torque?

D burn out pretty good lol with the 14s bout 30% tread lol but no it does for 2 seconds n the rpm drops n it like doesn't raise the rpm quick it's kinda just a ok consistent pull idk my tps is unplugged n I think maybe it could be a clogged cat or maybe the exhaust is restrictive
