Some of you might have already seen the thread about my car getting on the dyno. Might as well document this journey here in my journal.

I had my car dyno'ed last weekend and got low numbers. I got puzzled with the results and started asking members what may have caused the problem. This was the first time I had the car on the dyno and it was also my mistake not to have obtained a baseline dyno read before I installed the mods that I have. But anyways, at least I now have some sort of a number which I can use as a platform.

SOME IPHONE PHOTOS:









DYNO RESULT:




Possible causes of having low numbers:
1. Dyno Machine not calibrated well / Different Dyno Machines = Different Readings
2. Dyno Operator Error ( hood was closed running the dyno/ small fan used/wideband got shot out of the exhaust in one of the runs)
3. K&N Filter ( not getting enough air circulation / heat-soak)
4. MAF Sensor was not cleaned.
5. CSL Bumper ( No air duct available to direct air to the filter)
6. EVOLVE -R Tune (not really blaming the Tune but I sent my DRF Files and Dyno results to Sal at Evolve so that he can tweak and customize the tune more now that he sees how my car is running vs. just telling him which mods are installed in the car.

NOTE: I am retaining the K&N since I might go FI soon. I just want to see if there will be any improvements by doing some small but important changes. After all the changes/adjustments are done, I will run the car at the same shop, same dyno and see what results I get.


Things that will be done to correct issues:
1. Make sure to leave hood open by tricking hood sensors
2. Installing an air duct from the inlet of the CSL Bumper towards the Air Filter
3. Make sure all the fans are directed towards the filter and engine compartment
4. Cleaning the MAF sensor
5. Cleaning the K&N Filter
6. Load the updated EVOLVE Tune from Sal

I will drive the car for about a week or 2 amd maybe dyno it again by the 1st week of June.
Stay tuned for the results. Let's see what happens.

UPDATES: Bought myself an OEM Car Cover from BMW Tulley just to protect and keep my car away from dust when it is parked in the garage... I was also able to inspect the Work Meisters today and placed the stickers in to have them ready for mounting/balance next week. Took a lot of detailed photos of the Meisters which I never really got to do with the previous set that I had. Enjoy!


OEM CAR COVER:









WORK MEISTERS:








JUST TO SHOW YOU HOW WORK PACKAGES THE WHEELS:



WORK MEISTERS OUT OF THE BOX WITHOUT STICKERS:











COMPARISON BETWEEN THE 9.5" FRONT WHEEL (FOREGROUND) AND 11" REAR WHEEL (BACKGROUND)



THE STICKERS ETC:



WHEELS WITH THE STICKERS:











GROUP SHOT (LOL!) :









WHAT THE BACK OF WORK MEISTERS LOOK LIKE:



TWO REAR WHEELS







TWO FRONT WHEELS:

Seats look great! Just happened to be looking around online and saw that VividRacing had pics of your interior for their Recaro seats, thought they looked familiar.
