NA Fairlane Dyno Results
Today we had our Dyno Day for South Australian club members and some non members, and I put the ole barge up on the dyno and I was VERY suprised at the output, I was grinning from ear to ear with my result (Ask MrBrock) heh. Not to rub it in to anyone that was there, but to compare my result to results of a couple of other vehicles that were there since Dynos are all different, this is how I went..
-NA Fairlane 4.0 I6, 2.5 cat back single muffler exhaust, K&N Filter and XH snorkle - 108rwkW
-EA Brock Falcon 3.9 I6 , i think from memory it is pretty much stock standard as far as the Brock features (headers, exhaust, cam and intake) do correct me if im wrong MrBrock. - 99rwkW
-EF Fairmont 5.0 V8, stock standard - 117rwkW
-EF Fairmont 4.0 I6, stock standard - 97rwkW
So with that comparison, I think the ole barge isnt doing too badly, but I will say that when MrBrock did his second run with the airbox lid and filter off it did make 109rwkW. But still, a consistent 108kW from both runs, and the second one I took the airfilter (K&N) and the airbox lid off and it actually ran .2kW less than with the filter and lid on!! Goes to show how good K&N filters are, and I think now that MrBrock is going to go off and get himself one, because he gained 10rwkW on removing the airfilter and airbox lid!!!
I would attach the dyno print out, but its waaaaaaaaay too big for here. haha
