Hell no, come on by (anyone really) to spectate, snap pics/vids and grab some food (minimal cost).

Does that mean you won't commit and will pass by the location late in the day for a (possible) play-it-by-ear run?

Nah lol just means I'm poor at the moment trying to get the car even dyno worthy. I gotta re-tune it since I made a few changes over the winter. If i got some cash and the car is ready I'll book my spot!

actually it would be good to dyno your car when it's stock, you would get a baseline of what your car makes before the mods you plan to put in it, than you should do one after mods to see if you actually gain any HP.

Do you guys monitor AFR and/or detonation while doing the pulls? Or do you just strap it down and go?

I can always squeeze you in late afternoon... I have the dyno booked (literally) all day and can accommodate a late-afternoon test for you (we've had them go into the night, finishing @10pm). Just give me heads-up so I know you're actually coming.

Might be valve seals. If your valve seals are worn out in high vacuum situations (i.e. down shifting or engine braking at high rpm) oil can get by them and into the combustion chamber.

Did he say 195? That's good power to the wheels. Car sounded good on the dyno *mw*

Thanks man. It's actually lower than I expected. I dynoed 195 last year and have since added a track pipe and just an active ecu yesterday. So I guess the ecu didn't have enough time to learn :(

Great day! I wish I dynoed higher than 180hp but its good to know a baseline.

EMPOWERD

Guys, keep in mind the reading yesterday were all SAE. If you had a STD reading last time, the value will be off (SAE reads lower).

That's a relief to know. Any idea what % of a difference it usually is?

Stephanie
04-11-2010, 10:29 PM
^^ With the STD correction, my car is making 362 rwhp according to my tuner.

This was based on my 351.5 rwhp / 375.0 ft/lbs of torque run.

My second run at the end of the day (without the A/C on. FAIL.) made 353.6 rwhp / 373 ft/lbs of torque.

SamE30e
04-11-2010, 11:35 PM
Doogee, that could be the car going rich when letting off the throttle. My car did it when I first went WOT and when I let off. Or it could be the valve stem seals like the other person said..

And nice numbers Steph.

If my engine was back together we could see if I can break the 200whp N/A mark with all the parts I have laying around.

doogee
04-12-2010, 03:13 AM
^^ Thanks. It's running rich. Had smoke coming out at idle at the track today.

Yipee lol.

What's the conversion percentage you used to determine STD?

Valve stem seals leak at idle too lol.

You cannot simply convert numbers from SAE using a percentage number.

SAE takes into account ambient air temps, humidity and other environmental factors to compensate.

NOTORIOUS VR
04-12-2010, 01:32 PM
Might be valve seals.

Yup most likely is.

Gamite
04-12-2010, 05:01 PM
I wonder how she figured it out then.

doogee
04-12-2010, 05:08 PM
Yup most likely is.

If it were Valve Stem Seals, wouldn't I be burning oil?

I didn't lose a drop after an entire track day yesterday.

Michel
04-12-2010, 05:32 PM
^When I did a dyno last year I noticed the same thing; the car would puff out a bit of smoke in higher RPM. The tuner at the shop there told me that its a good sign, something about the vanos being healthy... not sure how true that is, but that's what he said! so might be normal

Sickbimmer
04-12-2010, 06:27 PM
I think on a day like Sat. The STD and SAE would be pretty close. The air was cool and dry. I don't see more then 10hp+/-

NOTORIOUS VR

It was either that or an excessive amount of fuel can also produce white smoke (yes normally too much fuel is black, but there are instances where it would be whiteish).

I'm guessing you have a tune?

NOTORIOUS VR

Who Steph? There is no figuring it out. It's a best guess from her tuner.

You said you installed a track pipe... which I'm assuming replaced your cat? If that's the case this might be the cause of the smoke

187 ft/lbs.

At what rpm did you hit it and when did it drop off.

Did they give you a chart printout would like to see it. Trying to plan my e36 mods for they next year and would love some charts to see what's what
