Got the SE on the Rollers!

direct C/P from SC:
The local DSM guys had a Dyno day @ f1 dyno in portland Maine.. and, as usual, I tagged Along to help where I could, And watch some nice cars put down some impressive #'s.



first was a friend's '04 EVO RS with MBC, bigger FMIC, and S-AFC for Tuning.

at Stock boost, and -5% Across the board, he put down 306AWHP!



Next, is an '03 EVO with 10.5cm 16G housing From the '04 MR. DSMlink 3" d/p opened race gas, and 25Psi. I'm probably Forgetting Some Stuff... but 422AWHP!!



Then there was a 7cm 16G'd 1997 GSC that only made 250AWHP...somewhat dissapointing, Since he had a LOT of mods...



and another '95 GSX that WAs havign issues with fuel-delivery... at 17Psi he was running 9:1 a/f.. when he got to 23PSi, it would be Fine until ~5kRpm, and SHOOT to 18:1!!!!! he only managed 311AWHP on all the short low boost pulls.





Then, I decided to throw the saab on the rollers. For $45.. who wouldn't???!

@ ~14Psi (extra load from Dyno makes the MBC Spike/Fuel-cut.) I managed 228FWHP(@ 5700RPM) and 250Ft/lb. (@3900Rpm)



Since I was watching the car, I didn't see it, but the guys in the lobby were all in awe. We were all expecting to see ~190HP (myself included).

I about soild my britches when they showed me the plot.



Not too bad For MBC and 3" intake/K&N...

Those are my ONLY power mods!

It would have been nice to raise the boost to 15.5 and squeeze an even 230, but my MBC+A didn't get here until after I got home.





Anyways... that's how I spent my Saturday!

Talk about "good times"!

do you have a HOT model? I understand that not all 99 93's had the TD04 turbo unit, and that counts for a lot right there.

Well from what I can find out the difference in the HOT and non-HOT is the IC, stiffer wg spring and ecu... +15HP? Just to add to this, Ive heard of a 99 HOT with the same mods putting down 175whp in a 100F shop...

This was definitely a run with the IC heat soaked. A very hot humid ATL summer day with the ac running the whole way over I heard. I'm ready to dyno mine to see what kinda gains I get with my current harware and mbc before i go to the software swap. Nice #'s though btw.

Thats pretty damn good.

Glad you didn't spike w/ that MBC. When i was using mine I spiked alot and often hit fuel cut.. so I ended up removing it.

Thanks for the motivating post! Nice numbers, im hoping my numbers are like yours in my ng900 T25.

Im guessing anywhere from 220 to 230 with my current mods. I think i will put a 3" dp before the dyno to see if i can squeeze 235! I would be very happy with 235 and 250+ torque!
