Today i had my xr8 pursuit ute on the dyno,
i was very happy with the test i got 193kw at the rear wheels. That works out to be 289kw at the fly wheel, can some one please tell me how this can be true my ute should be 250kw at the fly wheel. the guy said to me that it is right, i said how he said we get so many cars hsvs and fte cars some are up others are down he said i shoud be happy i am but how ?????????????

Gee that's incredible... and it's auto too if I remember correctly. I'd consider trying more than 1 dyno... they have been known to be inaccurate.

Looks like your engine may have been more worked over than first thought

That is definately alot of power. As far as I understand you generaly loose about one third of your power through the drive train. Therefore 193kw at the wheels should be around 257kw at the flywheel.

Your engine is faulty.
Pull it out, send it to me, and I'll
send you a stock 351 Clevo......

OR: Leave it in, give me the whole ute,
and you can have my project XD ute!!

Probably not the answer you're looking for,
but I know I'd be happy..

Seriously, I dunno, what fuel you running??
Any mods to the ute???
I wouldn't panic too much, just go find some
******s to educate...

Ed :)

Original XD 351 Ute - I got one!!

HSV - I just don't want one....EVER!

My XF 3 on the tree ute is ALWAYS stuck in third......

The only way to find power at the flywheel is to measure it at the flywheel. Measuring at the wheels adding a bit dividing by something then multiplying it by the temperature of the nearest capital city is so inaccurate its not funny. As for dynos you will get a different power output for every one you put it on.The only real measure is 1/4 mile long.

Was it a Dyno Dynamics? That is a very healthy output indeed
Dont think it would be 290Kw as a stock Clubbie now puts out around 190rWkW but they seem to be more than the advertised 255kW engines. But only one way to find out how powerful it really is to take it to the track:s4

Well said Larko, it costs about $60 for a Dyno run and about $28 for as many runs as you like at the drags on a Sunday afternoon. The latter is a hell of alot more fun also.
