AMMO-Duke Yes, stock intake and stock engine(150K miles).

sporadic Looks like respectable numbers to me. I agree about the possible timing issue. I assume you have the stock intake manifold judging by the torque curve?

AMMO-Duke Thanks! I will get a fresh datalog in the next couple of days. Unfortunately, I did not datalog the dyno runs because I was helping a friend learn how to operate the dyno for the first time at the shop where he works.

AMMO-Duke Dyno results:

Stock Duratec 2.0
Stock Intake Manifold
Ancient T-4 turbo
93 Octane
10.9 AFR
10.5 PSI



Question, why is my power curve so jagged? Only thing I can think of is I had the spark plug gap at .045. I was experimenting with different gaps and could not tell a difference until on the dyno. I now have the gap at .035, but I regret not figuring this out before the dyno. I hope I did not lose power because of this, It will irritate me to know if I could have made more power. Any other ideas???

Plus, there is no standing oil inside the head in this area, just open space. This all adds up to it working just fine so far.
NO the 90 does not add up to it working fine. Need to put a normal flange and run a line all the way down like they (I) do on the K-series sidewinder manifolds. there no point to mess the seals up on the turbo for a 30.00 fix.

Agreed. Should never have a hard 90 off the turbo.
