Here's my very first dyno pull.
My dyno pull
mods are N1, AVCR @ 18lbs, BCC, RMM downpipe. There was no icing or spraying the intercooler. the first pull was the highest because the pulls were done within about 10 seconds of each other.

oh, no I'm not ashamed of it. It's actually what I had expected from it. I just posted it for others to see. I did use 5gal of 110 octane leaded gas mixed in with 5 gal of unloeaded 92 octane. Next will be cam gear and intercooler.

Glad to hear it Larry. If those numbers were on straight pump gas, I was going to say you had a MONSTER on your hands. I agree that it sounds just right for your mods and the gas you ran. Congratulations! :)

Tozer,

That is precisely what I meant. If you run pump gas on the dyno, chances are that your ECU is retarding timing. To achieve near or better than 400/400 on pump gas without icing the intake, resetting ECU, spraying intercooler, etc. is a pretty special accomplishment. There are several people who have done it (several in AZ I think) but it's far from the norm.

What you've said obviously makes sense, though. If you prep the car, there is no real reason that it couldn't make the power on pump gas. :)

I'd love to see a striaght BPU car run anything over 114 traps with pump gas. I'll believe it when I see it. Oh wait, I forgot, that happens ALL the time in Az. Perhapes the air in Arizona has a higher content of oxygen? That somehow only effects Supras? I think Steve has the right idea, hes just afraid to say it :)

Car in TX trap considerably higher (as high as 122) as well as some back east and in the mid-west. The key to running good traps is to cool the car prior to running and re-setting the ECU prior to each run. It doesn't hurt if you know how to drive a 6-speed as well. 114mph isn't bad, it just isn't really good.

Don't think I haven't tried that :) Wow this really is a kinder, genlter, Tozer.

Would this be the 100 Octane gas Saad sells from the pump, or the garden variety 92 octane :)?
