    Dyno results info thread

    4th is generally the preferred gear for power runs, usually the most direct ratio 1:1. Also the figures on the sheet are BHP, N/A cars are never going to yield fantastic gains, but making good your AFR is never going to be a bad thing, although it would have been nice and safe at the top end with that AFR. It’s also not beyond the realms of possibility that an inefficient hand built Power Flow exhaust could loose you power especially in the Y pipe. When i used to run a dyno we always had a “special” BMW M3 Mode because the average person would have been a little upset if a car left after a map only making “stock” power, the fact is they consistently made significantly less than BMW claimed as their figures were engine out of the car with a different intake and exhaust. BHP is basically a best guess and there are a few ways of calculating it. WHP is where it’s at, just not as good for the old pub talk.

    Riots in France - petrol prices - UK comparison

    The French love a good riot. Do they usually get any where with them though, they seem to have got what they were after this time though (for a few months anyway)? I’d wager you could save a lot of money in most areas if you cut down massively on administration and middle management. Jobs for jobsworths. The French government has been way to protectionist and way to socialist for way too long and they’re upset because Macron is cutting back, turns out that the socialist model has to come to an end when you run out of other people’s money. It’s happening in France, Germany, Sweden and Spain to name a few. Or I could be horribly misinformed.

  4. Here’s a little clip of it with my mechanic friend driving. I’ll make a better clip when I’ve got a min. Hope the link works https://www.icloud.com/sharedalbum/#B0d59UlCqmzdCT
  5. Giving my Z it’s first public outing, End of the Year meet at The Chemical Guys on Parkside road in Kendal Cumbria Sunday 16 December, if anyone fancies coming along.
  6. New battery, new battery location (slightly) still in the boot. Wayyyyy more cranking power and seems to have stopped my intermittent TC light.

    Undertrays

    Just fitted this to mine, really happy with it.
  8. Fitted my injen exhaust and torquen undertray. Really happy with it all. Even the flanges look fit. I know it’s probably in my head but it feels quicker and more free reving.
  9. Heads back in the game.

  10. I have to read that where’s my hat book most nights
  11. New battery. Old one didn’t cut it as a road car battery.
  12. A few more bits. I never knew wheel nuts could look so awesome. New intake hose fits over the big TB so much better. Currently waiting in my house for the new exhaust to turn up.
  13. Yeah, the horrid creaky noise that accompanied it wasn’t great either. Seemed to appear after the dyno session.
