Couldn't crack 300 :-(

Took my car in today to get it's first service and dyno tune since the rebuild. It laid down 286.6hp @ wheels. Only like 8 hp more than before the rebuild. Still pretty good for what it is i guess and more importantly it goes alot better down low now, so i'm not too disappointed. Still doesn't go anywhere near as hard as i'd like it to, but i'm out of money so it'll have to do... for now.

Mate they never go hard enough and always cost heaps as well.
Your doing really well getting 214rwkw out of the 6 though.

Hope you have some trouble free motoring with it now

Re: Couldn't crack 300 :-(

Thanks mate, hopefully all the troubles i've had with it are now over. Down the track i might do head/cam, diff gears etc. but that'll all be along way off. Getting a bit frustrated you haven't sold the ute yet? Bet you're itching to get yourself into a BA...

Re: Couldn't crack 300 :-(

Thanks guys. Unfortunately i have no idea on the torque figure, the other axis on the dyno graph is just psi. Feels fairly "torquey" to drive though.

Re: Couldn't crack 300 :-(

214 RW KW still sounds pretty good.

Cheers, Danny

Plans have changed on that front mate as i couldnt find a genuine buyer for the ute. I'm just holding off till my tax comes back (problems with accountant taking longer than usual) and then ripping the forsale sticker off the back and getting some alloy heads, new intake, bigger TB and a mild cam.

Sounds good mate, what power you hoping for? And who's going to do the work for you?

Re: Couldn't crack 300 :-(

Power will depend on what heads/cam/intake we decide on in the end but should be between 190rwkw - 220rwkw depending on the set up. And a good strong torque curve. I'll let ya know dont worry
You'll hear me coming past you work after it gets done on the limmiter

nothing like a cammed up V8 @ full song
Except maybe a stroked and supercharged T series
