Dyno Might results

Post by 350matt »

Gents

I've unearthed the dyno results from a few years ago
these were lost due to the server housekeeping event
so I thought some folks might like to see it

For those new to the forum, or even those around that weren't directly involved, it would help if someone could add a short write-up that explains the event.

My understanding is that these runs were all completed on the same day, on the same equipment, configured with the same settings.

So, while absolute numbers gathered under a variety of situations can't be compared with any great meaning, these are the best back-to-back comparisons we have for the various "upgrades" available.

From what I recall it was all done on the same day and on the same dyno , there was no optimisation or fiddling
it was basically everyone rocked up at the same time or throughout the day had a cup of tea, and watched their car do a blat on the dyno and that was it
Lemon's car was found to have a serious engine issue shortly afterwards
and Juey's car was also fixed post this event

....wasn't broken, just had an auto box :lol: #-o

The 210 JDM claims were FALSE [-X

Now making 160+ whp. Same engine with a manual box :thumright:

Yep, was all at Rotary Revs on their hub dyno on the same day. 16/09/2017 - the day the manual conversion became a necessity 8)

Before - standard Auto
After - Manual box and some remapping by Denton at Revs.
....and they say you can't get any more power out of these Rotaries :P

As it was also done on the Revs Dyno, this 4 Port is also worthy of note:

The Engine was built by Ryan Rotary Performance (RRP), then I personally (RRP) tuned this on the MGT Dyno, this is the hub dyno we use near us for all our tuning. On this MGT dyno it pulled 165WHP, for reference Full Bridge-Ports on this (MGT) Dyno make 197WHP

The car was then taken to Revs for a Dyno run only;
