Yes it was Tommy over at GRAF AUTO. You must have seen my black M5 parked outside also. Tommy has some pictures he took with my camera that he wants me to post so I'll add them to this thread in a few minutes. (the pictures that Tommy wants to show are of his new wheels, look in my next post)

You have to ask Tommy about the heat exchanger. It put out 286 flywheel hp @5000 rpm (we didn't run it higher as we couldn't find a good place to tie it down, later we decided we can tie to the rear strut bar next time. I estimated that at 6500 rpm, we will have 6500/5000 * 286 = 372 hp @ 6500 rpm.

The dyno determines the losses in the transmission and rollers upon coast-down and then calculates hp at the flywheel.

On the graph below, torque is on the red curve in ft-lbs. Hp is the blue curve in kW. (multiply by 1.35 to convert to hp)

The magenta curve is the air/fuel ratio. We read it after the cat but next time we will monitor it pre-cat.

there should be a threaded hole for a screw-in hook under the cover on the rear bumper, or his bumper is not OEM?

does it measure rwhp? afr?


edit- didnt see you edited your post.

Why AFR jumps so much at 5100rpms?

He had the single hook but Rudy wanted to tie it down from two spots when we run over 5500 rpm or so. Yes it can measure rwhp but the plot is showing the flywheel hp. See curves in my other post.
