If you pull the turbo hoses off... what bhp would a LET lose? I imagine a LET without a turbo would be less bhp than an Xe as the compression is so low.....So take the turbo off and what is the LET equivalent too....SEH, XEV...perish the thought an NE?

Just got me thinking thats all.

It is totally sh*te when a boost hose blows off which is basically the same as what you are describing. I lost one at 1.8Bar and besides sh*tting myself when it happened the remaining drive home was difficult (didn't have any tools with me :( ) as the fuelling goes to pot and the car stalls at low revs. I would say power wise it felt worse than my old Escort 1.3 popular:eh

Pulled the amal pipes off my calibra and it boosted to 2 psi I think, and an ne would have murdered it.
Like a 50 brake engine I reckon, was hugely slowly whatever it was.

If you pull the turbo hoses off it runs like a bag of :turd and doesn't go at all... is this what you actually meant or did you mean what would it produce if you dumped the turbo completely and ran it NA like the XE?

Yes, if you switched to N/A on an LET what would it be like?

It'd hardly run at all Colin, as has been said ;)
