Dyno.....doesn't make much sense

I don't have a scanner, but I'll try to take a pic of the graph asap...
175.3hp @ 6000 rpm ..not bad
232.2ft/lbs @ 3750 rpm.....doesn't this seem a bit high?
Anyhow, I'm quite chuffed
Mods are a APR 93 octane, and 3" atp downpipe (no cat)

yikes...nice torque!

I think that number is about right with the 3" dp.

The graph isn't exactly linear, but I also don't have a cat and I think it's the culprit....

Re: Dyno.....doesn't make much sense (FastGTi)

i've never quite seen anyone complain about dyno number being too high

but isn't ur hp number a bit low with the highest hp chip avaliable, plus a 3" DP?

Your hp should be about 15 pts higher. Your torque is right on the money. My completely stock '02 GTI just pulled a 166.4 hp and a 176 ft-lb on a dynojet. There was a guy with a Garret v10 and EVO CAI and his best pull was 191 hp with the torque somewhere around 240 ft-lb. I'd be kinda sad if I were you. Sorry.

See that's what I first thought, but it seemed everyone was putting out low numbers. A modded S4 was only putting around 259 whp.
Plus I've got some weird stuff going on in the curve check it out

On my last dyno, I had the same mods
PLUS
Evo intake, no resonator, FD exhaust.
Took the HP to 199 and kept the torque. Consider a bigger catback.

Well, I have the same torque, but 25 more HP, so something is weird. Thats nice torque, but weird HP.

Re: Dyno.....doesn't make much sense (FastGTi)

Seems to me like Mustang Dyno's are always a bit lower than dynojets. I don't think you can compare a Mustang to a dynojet. And don't forget to take into account temps, altitude, humidity.. I don't think there's necessarily anything wrong with your numbers.
Of course, if this thing about the VCT turns out to be true then who knows what to believe about anything.

you beat me to it. From what i've seen, mustang dyno's are quite a bit more conservative than a dynojet.
