my ef xr6 on dyno

Hi all, now i know this has been covered a thousand times before, but until now i hadnt really taken any notice. On the weekend i put my EF XR6 on a dyno as a matter of interest to find out what it does before i put a Wade cam in it.
The car done 144.3hp, all i have done is a K&N air filter, Pacemaker extractors and a 2.5" exhaust, what i want to know is this about average or good or what.

What has everyone else got out of their cars and the mods done to them??

EfII xr6, weld draglites, king spring superlows, Wade cam, pacemaker extractors, 2.5" mandrel exhaust, electronic shift kit and too many more to list on here.

Re: my ef xr6 on dyno

Important thing is to get a before and after same dyno same operator to see the gain you get from each mod and the combination of mods you do.

Unfortunately the dyno reading you have got seems pretty low compared to other dyno's. Don't get too worried about it though.

My AUII I6 Falcon ran 142rwhp stock, with Pacemakers PH4480 and 2.5" system it ran 155rwhp and with a JMM DEV3HL cam as well it ran 185rwhp.

On the Dyno I use I would have expected an EF XR6 to run 146 rwhp stock and 165rwhp with extractors and exhaust.

Re: my ef xr6 on dyno

aslong as he uses the same dyno again and again, he will beable to judge his power gains accuratly

Ive been described as a vault of usless random knowledge.

Ill take it as a complement i think.............

Re: my ef xr6 on dyno

thats one hell of a signature you have there - can you post or send me some pics of your car? particularly the airbox and scoop with the lights coming out!

if it was a stock XR i would say that is good, but for a full zorst and stuff a little low. HOWEVER as others have said, it depends entirely on the dyno and the intake air temp etc etc etc etc etc!!!!!!

what fuel were you running? what model paceys do you have? the 'old' style or the new ones that look like spaghetti?

Slick, Quick and Fulliii SIK!!!
