There are some stats that are way off here. Torque being one for that HP, and the 0-60 doesn't jive with 1/4 mile time, and the hp certainly doesn't for that 1/4 mile time.

dude i know i saw the 982 foot pounds and had to click this. that doesn't sound too accurate, where did u get those numbers??

LOL. Even if all that made sense, I really doubt you can get that much out of a carburator engine.

exactly who are u? ive proof from pj motor sport. ive proof of my quater mile and 0_60 time, dont mouth off just cus you on the net, not big, not cleva

i got the dyno done at pj motor sport in b`ham, there pretty accurate, there equipment is fairly new and they did a few cars before mine, well thas what i have printed off lol, i can only go by whats in my hand

Depends on how much money was put into it I guess, and how well it appeals to buyers. You're talking about the market and not just pure facts about the car anymore. For example, silvia's, rx-7's and civics will always be overpriced and people are still willing to pay for them. And its difficult to find a buyer who will appreciate and is willing to pay for all the mods in the car. Its really difficult to put a price on it? So I guess its up to you to test out the market and see how people respond. Personally I wouldnt pay over $8k for it just cuz despite the amount of work done to it, the car just doesnt appeal to me and I wouldnt drive something I dont feel good in. But that's just me.

I couldn't give you a value because all these stats look like BS, there's no pics of said car. I am around people who are running big power small displacement motors I have a friend with a GSR swapped Integra running 600hp/450tq with a T3/GT40 turbo and he isn't even at a full 3 bar yet. That car's fastest time has been 12.0 at 131mph which shows how traction limited it is. With only 320 hp your car is only somewhere in the low 13s maybe high 12s. If you have some pics to post up in here so people can see to give you an accurate value that would help. I don't want ot be a dick about anything, but from what I've done, seen, and been around these are impossible figures. My friend is selling his Integra now and he's asking 18k for it with quite a few spares to go along. I guess you can work from that figure.

thanks for the reply maty, was thinkin more between £5500 and 6k, bein that petrol is a major factor and the car is ugly lol, drinks like its goin outa fasion, cheers for the post

haha u make out you know everythink about cars... well its funny cuz i have been in the car and i have seen what it can do... i have also seen all the paper work he has got for it

Would depend on too many other things. What year is it? Who did the mods. Is it running on the edge or is there room for more power? Etc. In the end though, its still just a pulsar. I wouldn't buy one.

Far from it do I know everything, but I do know quite a lot as I went to school for engine building and fabrication and then on to school for mechanical engineering. Not to name all the people that I have been around that have been at motorsports longer than I have been alive. There is really only one way to have a larger torque value over hp on a small displacement turbo engine and that would be running a restriction on the inlet into the engine which will effectively cap hp and boost torque due to the gain in velocity of the air. But since he states that there is strong boost onset at 5k that pretty much eliminates that as a possibility because the restriction will severly limit how high the engine can rev. The only real explanation I can see is that the operator of the dyno did something in how they were loading the car or the smoothing factor was goofy, but that is still an off the chart toque value for a 2.0L motor. The second is an 11.2 1/4 is attainable at that hp level if it is 320 to the wheels in a car weighing 2300 lbs figuring 20% drivetrain loss, if it's at the crank then the car has to weigh around 1800 lbs. 2300 maybe attainable, but that is excruciatingly light for a street car and even quite light for many race cars. I'm not doubting that it may be a quick car, it's just that from the few stats that have been given something seems a bit off, and a more specific list as to what has been done to the car may make it a little easier to guage an asking price. If it's a well put together piece with spares to offer I would definitely push for a high price, you always have room to come down if it's too high.
