Xr8 Rwkw?

Nearly 3000 k's on the BA auto XR8 ute. Fitted 80mm Battens TB, 80mm Battens helix, Battens air intake, BMC filter, Battens underdrives and we are nearly ready for a Dyno Session. Any ideas on what it should make on a dyno dynamics in shootout? the exhaust is totally stock.
Thanks all,

C

Re: Xr8 Rwkw?

With 3000km on the clock i'de say around 210-220rwkw or, that will certainly go up after another 10,000 or so

Go to a decent, reputable dyno place that gets it serviced and calibrated regularly, otherwise you'll get a readout of 235rwkw which sounds good but not really an honest power run. Dont take the readout too seriously, dyno's are best left for same-day modding to see how many kw a mod has given, to get real power readouts get a good MPH down the strip!

Re: Xr8 Rwkw?

Thanks guys, i will try a pass after the 1st service. i have a dyno, but it is currently being upgraded, and since if we are talking "figures", i would prefer to use a shootout accredited dyno.

looking at other figures, im assuming about 98-100 mph would put me in the ballpark (until i get an exhaust fitted) and then is 102-103 what to expect after exhaust?

im waiting until a few more products arrive on the market before i try an exhaust, but the advice i recieved from an official OFR member has made a suggestion, looking at his timeslip i may be forced to take his advice.....
