800 WHP Unlimited Front Wheel Drive Acura Integra Type R

In Time Attack, horsepower and boost response are extremely important in order to achieve top speed as well as to accelerate in and out of corners without sacrificing time. As much as peak horsepower is important, efficiency is critical. Our GTX3582R Gen II experiences virtually zero lag while achieving near ambient air intake temperatures. We have one to two laps to go out and make our fastest lap on the track so turbo selection is key to our success. This 800 WHP Unlimited Front Wheel Drive Acura Integra Type R has progressed from a daily driver to a dual duty daily driver and time attack car to now a full blown race car. This took 10 years and approx 75 events!

The GTX3582R Gen II has the best balance of power, response, and packaging for our 2.4L K24a2 engine. The V-band turbine housing makes installation in a tight space a breeze. James’ favorite thing about the turbo is definitely the crazy power numbers we can make! We always get asked at the track what it’s like to drive an 800whp front wheel drive car on a circuit track. Honestly when the setup is working well it’s a breeze. The car puts the power down extremely well thanks to the great responsiveness of the turbo.

This year James is using the GTX3582R Gen II turbo with the V-band 1.01 A/R turbine housing. The 2.4L K24a2 makes 809whp and 565 lb/ft of torque at 8000 rpm.
