T3 Power Gains

OK, here we go. Had the T3 dynoed today (Dyno Dynamics dyno in Shootout Mode). Made 212.7kw from a K & N and an exhaust for the grand total of $1500. All the following dyno figures are on the same dyno in Shootout mode.

Bought the car with 14600 kms on the clock. Already fitted with Di Philippo 4 into 1 headers, their cats and 2 into 1 3" exhaust with std tips. Dynoed at 193.3kw on std filter. Put in K & N and made 200.1kw.

Changed middle section of exhaust to twin 2.5" system. Dynoed again for 205.6kw. (still has 3" single system after rear axle)

Replaced Di Philippo headers (1.75" primaries) and cats (2.25" inlet/outlet) with Hurricane Headers (mandrel bent 1.5" primaries) and Redback cats (2.5" in/out). Also replaced std twin tips with 2.5" tips. From the moment these headers went on I didn't need a dyno to tell me that torque was much better. Car was spinning the rears a long way in 2nd whereas would only manage a chirp before. Tha car is much quieter than before so was not sure if top end was better.

Dynoed car again today for 208kw. Small kw increase but tractive effort was much higher. Connected cold air intake (XR8 snorkel to cone air box) and made 212.7kw.

HOWEVER, the dyno operator noted that the car is running rich and thinks that another 5kw is likely when the fuel problem is sorted. He says it might be just a case of letting the ecu adjust over a week or so to allow for the new cold air intake. Or, the problem could be faulty maf sensor or a few other things. For those who know about dyno dynamic results, the fuel reading was down to 11.4 instead of up around 12 where it should be.

I will leave it a few weeks and test it again and post it on this thread

I have the printouts and when I figure out how to post em here I will

Re: T3 Power Gains

Shane,

I don't think I have your car listed on my site.
Have a look at http://warp9.to/TheTseries and let me
know if I can list your car on here aswell.

So far what you have done sounds great.

Re: T3 Power Gains

skaynet... show us the dyno graph... it'll be interesting to see what the power curve looks like compared to the BA XR8s.

I have been trying to post the dyno sheets as attachments here but unfortunately my scanner software won't produce a file within the 50kb maximum allowed.

I am happy to email them to anyone if you PM me with your email address.

Alternatively, if a moderator or anyone else can assist by shrinking my jpg file if I send it to you maybe you can post it here on my behalf

fullthrottle,
The day my car made 200.1rwkw a BAXR8 with exhaust from cats back made 201rwkw. Since then my dyno guy said another stock XR8 made 217rwkw. He is really a Holden man but told me he is becoming more impressed with Fords which have a flatter torque output than the crappodores

Ok, had a look at the WSID website. They have street meets almost every Wednesday night.

I am thinking Wed 31st March.

Cost is $40 and extras $15 per head. Just need long trousers and long sleeve shirt or jacket and shoes and approved helmut.

Download entry form from website. Max 200 cars. If we get in early should be plenty of time to secure our spots.

Any takers? Maybe we should start a new thread and get all the NSW guys there.

Not yet. Got to get another snorkel as we hacked one up in a R & D exercise in deciding how to best fit it up.

Mine looks a treat and John from Dynotune said it looks Factory. I came up with a flexible hose idea to join the snorkel to the cone filter housing and it works so good! FIGJAM.

Only catch is that your engine cover will need a piece taken off the front bottom corner for it to fit over the snorkel. XR8 engine covers are already like this to fit over the snorkel.

I have written a detailed fitting instruction guide that should make the job about 2 hours for anyone who's interested. Just PM me with your email address.
