So what're we looking at coming from the engine before drive train loss? 167HP at the wheels is not bad. This is straight tune w/ no add ons correct?

He has a K&N typhoon intake, and a 2.5" muffler.

Is that a 2.5" cat-back or just muffler on stock piping?

Trying to guesstimate drivetrain loss is a waste of time. No one races their motor without the rest of their car. Drivetrain loss isn't a constant number either, or it would exponentially eat up power.

A 2.5" muffler is really small... And if its just the muffler it shouldn't be even listed in the mods list since it would only account for negligible gains

That graph looks great! Nice and smooth. The great thing with this tuner is not only does it give you a modest bump in power, but it makes running your mods safer and more power efficient. It also opens the door for internal engine mods and turbos in the future. A 2.3L Turbo Mk3 Focus would be nasty. The Mk3 Focus already runs lean from the factory.

I don't think he hooked the wide band up on this one. Shaun and I looked at some of the data that we used when making the run's. I think I'm gonna be a big fat let down on this one though
