170 at the most. given your A/F ratio is perfect and every piece is working perfectly. Its tough to get lots of power out of these motors NA. Especially using the stock motronic, even if it is chipped, the chip doesn't have a very agressive fuel setup. You can always hope for more, but given the parts you have i think 170 at the wheels is a pretty good estimate. Prove me wrong and make more power lol That's what i really want, but we have to be real.
