Yes, 197 rwkw in shootout, in 2nd gear.
Third gear, with the pull initiated at a higher road speed to avoid kickdown into second will find you a "free" 6-10 rwkw. look at the road speed on his dyno sheet (if i can work out how to attatch it)
I pulled the car 12 times, and we saw figures over 200 b4 the heat soak set in, but we were trying to get past the woeful AF ratio with a rising rate fuel reg.
We could have pulled fuel out bigtime, but to achieve the 12.5-12.8 AF ratio at wide open throttle, we would have seen a nice figure, a little closer to our target, but it may wound the engine, and its not my engine to abuse.
There will be a good 8-10rwkw once the mapping is sorted, and thats second gear. Once im satisfied with the behaviour of the engine, the car will be shipped back to noddy, and the real test at willowbank will occur.
IMPORTANT NOTE - RUNNING THESE CARS ON THE DYNO FOR MODIFICATION OR DEVLOPMENT SHOULD BE DONE IN SECOND GEAR IN AN AUTOMATIC EQUIPPED VEHICLE, AT A MAX SPEED OF 120-130. THIS WILL YIELD A SMALLER FIGURE, BUT PUT LESS LOAD ON THE CAR FOR REPEATED WORK.
we are not finished yet.
