Re: accurate dyno.?

There is no such thing as a accurate dyno

Hold your breath, count to 10, fall apart, start again

Re: accurate dyno.?

As long as you use the same dyno before and after the mods, you will get a rough guide to the performance increase.

ED XR6 - Mock Dev1, EL Thermos, XH intake with K&N Panel Filter, DBA Slotted Discs, Pedders Saloon Racing suspension, Whiteline adjustable swaybars.

Re: accurate dyno.?

Yeah, I know that, but what I am looking for is a dyno that will give me a reasonable reading to start with. I know what the I6 is supposed to put out, and that is what I am after. I don't want to go to a shop, and be told that my I6 puts out 120+kw to start with. It is a bog standard '98 EL motor, post March '98 which means it is actualy an AU engine. I'm not sure what the differences are, but Crow was most adamant that different cams were needed. Actualy, if anybody can tell me what the differences are between the pre March '98 engine and the post March '98 engine are, I would be most interested. I feel it has something to do with cam timing, but not a lot to do with compression ratio's etc. I do know that my son's EF feels different to drive than the EL. Even he has remarked on the difference.

Thats all well and good but it helps if the dyno is accurate in the first place!

But it's army surplus, it HAS to be accruate! I mean our governments wouldnt supply the army with inferior equipment and then fail to maintain it to perfection would they?

I'll just go and watch out for the next F1-11 to fall from the sky now.
