Modifications: D23 from 04 ZX4 with all Stock D20 accy/manifolds items from my 05 ZX3 plus, SRI (modified 1/2 of FS Cool-flo kit), F2 Header, FS 'STEALTH' Cat Back, CFM 67MM TB, Autolite 104 plugs, F2 BSD, "Tumble Flap" Delete, and DIY Tune using SCT ProRacer package, MTX-75 with 3.83 gears, Quaife, and Exedy Stage 1.5 clutch kit with 1pc cast/steel flywheel.
151 WHP 156 WTQ

NOTES:
I usually run the BRISK surface gap plugs from CFM, but the pulls were done with Autolite 104's because we were having problems getting quality tach readings on the dyno using the BRISK plugs. I swapped them back in after the dyno session because I think the vehicle starts and idles better with these plugs.

I could not quite figure out what was causing the little "dips" in HP/Tq. (If you look at these graphs, the same effect is seen in both my best/worst pulls.)

There's a small one @ 5200, and another larger one just after peak HP @ 5500 RPM.

I think it's where the PCM is seeing some knock and retarding the timing. It was only a few degrees, but..? I might try running this again with race fuel to see what happens in this RPM range where the knock is just starting to kick in. IF I make any significant improvements to this CAL/set-up, I'll share what I learned about fixing these "dips". If anyone has already "been there, done that" please PM me.

This is my second dyno session, not the original one on Tom's dyno while being tuned (I don't have that graph). This run was accomplished with the ECU in so called "safe mode" due to my CEL being on from O2 sensor 3 missing. This was causing my AFR (shown in the bottom) to rich out between 3500-5500 or so and staying slightly rich the entire time. In addition to that cylinder 2/3's coil boots were full of corrosion due to a water issue. With this all fixed the dyno shop said I should be eclipsing 175 for next time. We shall see.

This was done on a 4th gear pull, but I had to shut off at 6k because of speed govenor at 110mph. HP was still rising. I plan on running again after getting a tune and eliminating the speed limiter.
