Here is the dyno that was done today by vibrant. Completely stock BMW 325i, same vehicle that pulled a 14.7 in the 1/4 mile.

201 whp
182 wtq

Very impressive numbers for a stock BMW.

The 330 claims 255hp at the crank.... only a 15hp loss at the wheels, i love how they underate the cars!

Have you seen a 330 dynoed yet? I'm very curious as to just how much of a difference there is between the two.

BTW, you rock for dynoing and weighing your car, good man.

I went to SpitFire in Missisuaga, Average price is $115, however mine was free since Vibrant Performance paid for it (they are doing an exhaust on my car as a prototype)

How may pulls for $115, what dype of dyno and do they have tail sniffers so you can get the AFR????

Its a Dynojet, and apparently its 5 pulls for $100, 3 pulls for $60. Yes, with AFR, I just have to request a afr printout.

Spitfire is VERY well known for their accurate dyno numbers, their race cars, and their ability to build and tune race cars.

I have never heard of them. I am looking to dyno my car in Dec. I need a really good spot though that can do my AFR too. $100 for 5 pulls is a good deal though. I need a AFR and an accurate dyno , and someone that knows how to dyno a M3 since sometimes they dont redline.
So you reccomend them?? They have a website?

I highly recommend them. SpitFire is used to dyno'g 300-1200whp vehicles, and definately know what they are doing. I think they have a website but I am not really sure. When I dyno'd he let me do the runs, and let me cut off wherever my redline was.

They will do it the way you want it done, not the way they want it done (eventhough usually they are two of the same)

Im down for that if you guys are, but the dyno and the place has to be top notch.

It looks like they stuck the wideband O2 sensor up the exhaust pipe. Unless you removed that cats, it's meaningless to take the readings after the cats.

Mark,
I need a AFR but Im not ready to drill and dont want parts removed. I know they have exhaust sniffers for AFR, its not 100% but it gives a general idea.

I suppose it gives a general idea if the cats are dead. :)

But how is drilling a good idea? It can lead to so many problems later on.

A properly done bung will not have any problems.

When ever you drill into metal that is exposed to the elements, there is always potential for rust, leaks and so on.

Mystikal
11-21-2005, 06:38 PM
Potential yes, but properly treated it will be fine. How do you think cars are rust-proofed? They drill holes and seal them, and that spot never rusts when done properly. Same deal with aftermarket bodywork, etc.

Exhaust rusts to shit in a few years anyway.

After drilling the hole, I use a high quality stainless steel bungholio. :D

But even that can leak though over time, no?

ur exhaust sytem already has holes like that for ur o2 sensors, 4 of em.

MarkD, hooked me up with a place to install bung to my exhaust before cats.
not exhaust leaks or anything

Rudy at Graf Auto can do it also, he was just really busy that day you came by. I have the bungs in stock now, I had sold the last one the week before.

well I need to dyno the car after I get my Delage stage III done, I want to make sure its not running lean. And if any tweaks need to be made to the software, thats where Mark comes into play.

Thats because the e90 is not and never will be an enthusiest car :D

A real enthusiast car would hardly turn a profit in today's market. A real enthusiast car would be a niche in an already niche market.

Mystikal

To be fair, few cars were ever really enthusiasts cars when they came out, minus the Miata or other exceptions (and niche cars, yes). In the 80's the E30 was a rich snob car without much feedback relative to 15 year old cars too (just like the E46/E90 today).

Ignore my random thoughts though.
