How much is that TB? Brady and I are going to be sending TB's to a guy for a really fair price, might be cheaper to go the route we're going.

Well Guys,

Just came back from Alamco AutoSport.

I was aiming for 215 WHP. Keep in Mind, I am on 19x9.5 with 265 Tires and Automatic. Kinda Disappointed

DynoJet Run

CF: SAE Smoothing: 2

Run Conditions: 61.09F, 29.42 in-Hg, Humidity 54%
First Run :
Max Power = 201.45 Max Torque = 214.28

Second Run :
Max Power = 206.24 Max Torque = 216.43

Third Run :
Max Power = 203.37 Max Torque = 212.34

-TrippinBimmer

(Will Load Up The Graph Later)

Considering 18% drivetrain loss you have gained just a few hp (<10HP) over the factory specs. Best bang for your buck on these cars is forced induction.

I'd say those are good numbers for an auto 330. Remember that conditions mean a lot too... OP did you ever dyno when you were stock?

Does wheel/tire size matter using a dyno? Also does having a different rear differential ratio change readings?

BTW what modification gives you more torque over rear wheel horsepower?

I am expecting about 6-10whp from the Software itself.

Trevor,

Yes, Wheel/Tire Size will Matter. Unsprung weight comes to mind. If I was on Apex Arc-8 with Some Nitto Tires. I would be 10-14lbs lighter on Wheel/Tire Combo. It will give me better Numbers.

IDK what Mods gave me better Torqure over WHP...
