ehehe

nooo i don't like the big turbo....
i don't want to go to 3500-400rpm to have a good boost..

with the oem Turbo i have 2 Bar - 29PSI @ 2500rpm and a with the new IC   NO LAG!  this is what i like!!!

Big turbo means BIG LAG and now i have around 340CV or more with the new IC and i think is enough
but also i have 500Nm of Torque @ low RPM (around 3000rpm) and this is GREAT!

Welcome to the forum.  Sweet ride.  wow, you had the engine rebuilt already with Wiseco pistons.  I'm interested to know how your water to air IC is hooked up.  How much lower is the temperature over ambient?

Your site ending in IT didn't work, is this it? http://www.opelgttuningclub.com/

Welcome to the forum Domenico.  Thanks for the great shots of your Opel GT in your introductory post.  Also you state you are a member of the Opel GT Tuning Club.  May I ask if you participate in road rallies or competitive events in Italy?  Many on the forum have the Trifecta Tune and mod their Kappa's to the hilt.  Look forward to your future posts!  Carol and I will one day take a vacation to Italy, have always wanted to because your great country is so beautiful and the people so very friendly.  Again thanks for joining the Kappa Performance Forum.  We have a lot of fun here, as the name states this is a Performance forum and we are certainly glad that you joined the forum.

Welcome to the forum Domenico. I've been to Italy and it's a beautiful place. As Joe says the .it link that you posted in your original post doesn't work here in North America but the .com does.

All we need now is an Italian flag. 

 :D

Welcome! The landscape made me check something. If you can believe it you are further north than most US and Ontario (Canada) kappa drivers (if you reside in Passo dello Stelvio). And with your elevation I'd definitely stick with a small turbo.

Man... what a nice set of twisties.     :drool:

Hi Domenico! Nice mods you have there, you are ready for much more power, you can also work with 2 turbos so to have power from low rpm. Nice photo also, the place looks familiar! About 2 years ago 3 gt we came from Geece by boat to Ancona, went to San Marino, lake Garda, Stelvio pass, furka pass, passo del Toro, all the way through Mon Blanc, Austria, and finally Nurburgring. On the way back we also stayed one night at Padova, your country has some very interesting places! Welcome on board....
