what kind of power am i looking at?

i just bought a fully built turbo 2.3L motor from a friend...wat kinda power am i looking at making at maybe 18 psi and also what program can i use or who can i go to to get tuned?



here are the specs:

2.3 Turbo engine block (From a 88' turbo coupe)
bored .30 over
T3 Turbo .63AR
new forged pistons
E6 Exhaust manifold
speed pro Chrommoly rings
new rod & main bearings
new oil pump
new walbro 255lph fuel pump
new distributor cap & rotor
new water pump
new idler pulley
new thermostat
new fomo co. head bolts
Big MAF
lb2 ecu
2 88' TC intercoolers
S.S. Braided oil feed line & original T3 oil line

more specific specs:


Head:
Oversized valves, slightly ported.
A237 cam
adj cam sprocket

The pistons:
speed pro L2500F .75mm over (since its bored over .030)

Size point 1.90 from top of head
min. clearance .0024

Bore range 3.8091-3.8101

Skirt size 3.80635 +/- .00025 inches


Compression ratio:
Is the same as the original motor, which I believes comes too around 8.5:1 or so

With an lb2 ecm.. what a waste. It would be sooo much more tunable with an EMTec3. Then again, ' dual ' innercoolers. I'm glad our trucks have all that room for such things.

Your going to run 18psi ( close to 2 bar ) of boost and no innercoolers or are you going with a diferent innercooler?

Google search ' Electro Motive Tec3 ' and links will pop up for the ECU. Its the best out there, works with ANY Engine and is HIGHLY programmable. Its NOT cheap.
