Thumbs up ATX Dyno Results!

Yesterday (02/02/06) I went to Logan Motorsports in South Elgin, IL. They have a dynanometer that connects directly to each of the front hubs, so the car turns the machine from the hubs. I was expecting to see one of those roller dyno's that I've been more exposed to, but they said that this kind of dyno would be more accurate than a traditional roller dyno.

In the end, they Advancing both of my cams 6*.

122.5 WHP @ 5400 RPMS
137.1 ft/lb WTQ @ 4200RPMs



At my peak WHP (122.5), I have 119.8 ft/lb WTQ and that's at 5375RPMs.


I'm quite pleased with the results and I think that with a little more tuning time I can squeeze out a few more hp/tq!

Here is a list of my engine modifications so far.

*SCT X-Calibrator 2
*Pipercross Viper Induction Kit
*Ported Throttle Body
*Ported 2000 Intake Manifold
*Ford Racing Stage II Cams
*Focus Central Adjustable Cam Gears /w ARP Cam Bolts
*Focus Central 2 Piece UDP Kit
*Screamin' Demon Coil /w Focus Live Wires
*Denso Iridium Spark Plugs (Gapped to .065mm - 1 Step Colder)
*180 Degree Thermostat
*Focus Central 4-2-1 Race Header /w Heat Wrap
*TruBendz 2.5" Stainless Steel Flex Pipe /w Heat Wrap
*TruBendz 2.5" Stainless Steel Flex-Back Exhaust /w Borla Muffler
*VF Engineering Rear Engine Mount
*Phoenix Ground Wire Kit (14 Grounding Points)
*Mobile 1 Synthetic Oil 0w-20

Cheers!

They had two machines there (that I saw), they removed the front two wheels and connected each machine to a wheel hub. That way when the gas pedal is pressed, the hubs move the machines.

I talked to Karl at Massive Speed System and he said that if I were to go to a dyno with DynoJet, I would see around 140WHP and a lot more TQ. Karl said he goes to this dyno because it gives a more accurate reading as it is directly from the wheel hubs.

It's a torquey little Focus now. I love it!

Cheers!

That's exactly why he goes to this particular dyno; because it's more accurate. Though the reading on a DynoJet may say that I get 140WHP, that will not be an accurate reading. So I should find a DynoJet and compare the results though.

(By the way, I used 140 WHP as an example #, I should have mentioned that earlier)
