yea all the work was done by herrods!!!
and i can honestly say..... that they would have to be the best people to deal with.....if u have a question, or got a problem with the car, they are always great!!!
The only thing on the car that hasnt been done by herrods is the Motec and that is only because my brother helped me out with that!!

would love to know if anyone has had their T3 5.6 lt stroked Windor on the dyno. I know Flywheel kw is reported at 250 kw, just interested in what rwkw is. Mineis going on the dyno in 3 weeks, just wondering what I can expect.

Dynos

There are just too many dodgy dyno readings around to make a comparison valid. And now they have thrown "shoot out mode" into the equation to make things even worse.

I know the "real" numbers my car put out, but i can only speculate as to what they would be today.

I just want to know why i beat cars by half a track length at the strip that supposedly have more power than me.

I got a dissappointing 115rwkw recently. Thats with a two stuffed oxy sensors, dodgy harmonic balancer, and bent dizzy.
When I get these things sorted out I'll dyno it again and hopefully it will be a little better.
Damn crusty E7 heads and stock intake dont help either. I'll do something about that at a later date. The car is currently pushing 168,000k's so I reckon she's a little tired. Maybe time for a rebuild or a crate motor from the states. mmmmmmmm :wnc:

-------------------------
That is quite possible due to engine being built for top end power where the dyno reads max / top end or what we take notice of. An engine with a way crazzy cam with tall final drive especially...Notice even Ford went shorter ratio diff as power increased...And DRIVER !!! makes em faster...

I'v been to several dyno's and numbers within 1%...

5.7 Herrod stroker (334 ci) - 70mm TB and the balance stock on a AU1 T-Series 200 kw motor.

Stock rwkw = 121
Stroked only = 156
+ TB = 176 rwkw

main gain was in torque especially at the bottom end.
Total cost $7500.

Cheers
Russ

Hey just a query, How hard would it be to install an AU XR8 motor into an EB XR8?

Reason why I ask is when my motor decides to go, I want to look at all the options, from a total rebuild to putting in another motor from a later model 5ltr.

I'm just curious.
