Dyno's?

I got the car dyno'd recently.

Twice acually. Cost lots any dyno's do. The first day and a half the car was able to go from 150rwkw to 180rwkw. Not bad

Second time I spent 3hours on a different dyno (ran a comparason first,180rw) it cost me only 10% per hour of the first and I got it to over 200rwkw.

Still a little short of the expected amount, but lots of potential.

Now how to find the next 50??? Ha ha!

Hiya,

Wow, that's some difference with the dynos - I guess it can only be put down to different dyno and probably more importantly different dyno operators ?? Was anything tweaked to get such varying results ?? How are you going to find the next 50 - on the dyno is one thing...but noticeable drivable power on the road is another ;-)

Cheers,
Steve

umm, i think he said.. the first dyno he got 180rwkw's (from 150rwkws).. and then on the second dyno, they ran a 'comparason dyno run' .. which also worked out to be 180rwkw's.. so i imagine the figures were the same on both dynos...

what kinda tweakes did you do LTDHO ?

I did minor adjustments to the fuel and timing, it was detonating real bad, I was almost going to have it towed... But I took it gentle and when it got on the dyno, I had every sensor possible on it.

I had recently had the computer sent away. I had it tested twice as I wanted to have it eliminated as a possible fault. It came back both times, faultless.

Also, admittingly I had help. Two mates gave me a hand. It's amasing what 3 hours on the dyno will do. :)
