Im gonna dyno my car tommorow and i was wonderin' if there is anything i should know. Any advice on what i need besides a wide-band?? Any tricks to gain more hp numbers
The whole reason for doing all that is to stimulate real world conditions. At bpu, your car will detonate at high boost on the dyno, hence the use of race gas to fight off detonation. Reseting your ECU fixes your timing if it had ever been retarded due to a bad tank of gas. The fan is a weak attempt of ours of trying to stimulate the air whih would be blowin across our i.c. if we were moving. Does it make sense to u now?DuCeY DuCe said:ok it might just be me but i dont understand why people go through all of this before they dyno....i mean how often are you goin to run race gas and do all these other things before you drive? i would rather go there and find out my numbers of how my car is normally set-up....then maybe add race gas and raise boost above normal too see how high i can go...i just think it makes more sense to dyno the car exactly how you use it on the street not do all these special things to just get higher numbers at the dyno
Unless you have some type of fuel controller, what tuning *can* you do? There is no tuning involved on a BPU car, just good maintenance.DANKAHOLIK said:I cant get the dyno with the 385hp because my friends computer at magnaflow took a shit today. I couldn't get the disk, but I will have it by monday. I do have a dyno from wednesday that is on pump (91 octane) gas, I got about 370hp.
The one that i did yesterday on race gas only has one dip at about 5.5K. Keep in mind that i am completely UN-tuned. I was boosting at 1.2 kg/cm2. at 75 deg temp.
Sure:DANKAHOLIK said:Didn't know that 410+ rwhp could be accomplished without tuning.
Lagtime... Could you please list what mods you have exactly?
If it's the source of a boost leak (like mine was) then yes, blocking off the EGR helps. If it does not leak then blocking it won't make more power, although it's still worth doing for the safety factor (no chance of cooking the valves on #5 & 6).Jonathan S said:Chip,
Just curious if the EGR blockoff plate will do anything for horsepower #s?
