Has anyone had a GT on a chassis dyno yet and if so what are the results at the rear.

Russell, not doubting that it's real, but i didn't know dynos printed with red and green textas! lol

Be interesting to see one on a chassis dyno though. (Just to see what the losses are through the drivetrain).

At the Perth Auto Expo there were people standidng around the BOSS 290 display engines looking at that graph and it was funny to hear some of them. F^%$ 400Nm at 1000rpm, hehe. Thats awsome!

Anyone got a similar graph for the T3 347 engines??? They had some serious low down tourque too I think!?!?

Don't forget guys that while there's all that torque on tap it's also pulling serious weight. Having said that, I challenge anyone out there to say they're disappointed in the Boss 290 when it hits that 3650 rpm torque rise - the combination of intake and exhaust noise is unbelievable!

SOmething REAL wrong there Andrew! The 290 engines are all pulling around 220-225rwkw on Dyno Dynamics. Add around 10-15 for an exhaust depending on the engine.
