All you needed is a bullshit correction factor. Seriously, 300whp out of an 11psi GT2560R?

I would contribute to see that motor on a dynojet.

Come on, I believe... Not. Hey, the motor is stock too!!! Maybe, just maybe, it's the Hydra, because the Link ECU never sucked ***.

I'd like to know exactly what they changed...I don't see what could possibly change that much which Link or any EMS is incapable of doing.

17% correction sure helps.

30whp (over typical 220whp) gain, not the bullshit corrected gain from 3" exhaust and a real tune and an extra psi of boost.

Not 300whp bullshit claims, I don't know how FM still pulls that off (well, scratch that look at the 300$ center console group buy on m.net.) Look at boosted car's 1/4 mile mph's at altitude vs N/A cars at the same vs both at regular alt and you will see boosted cars are barely hurt compared to N/A at the same alt.

Strange. I have pure proof that their tuning on a 1.8 w/2560 is good for ~230rwhp for people at more normal altitudes @ 10-10.5 psi. It took me 12.5 psi to make an even 250rwhp.

I'm curious to see what happens on the day i get 3" exhaust.....

yeah, at an uncorrected 250 whp? that's fucked up, because that means my 460cc injectors are running at 120% right now.

Actually my calcs for my car show my 550s maxing out just shy of 300 rwhp. and by maxing, I mean max safe duty of around 80%.

I wonder what my car'd do on their dyno if I'm 250-260 at sea level at 9.5 psi.

I'm actually suprised that they hadn't locked or tidied up that thread. Can't be questioning a sponsor, now, can we?

I'm very interested to see how Jeremy responds. If it's simply a stock '99 motor w/3"exhaust, then it should be routinely repeatable on any '99 Miata w/3"exhaust. And I know that nobody has ever gotten that close to 300whp with such low boost. Not even on a 2860, let alone a 2560. Hell, I don't even think I've seen any T2 series make 300whp at such low pressure.

I don't know what the latest Hydra version is, but if the one the Caterham was running is the newest, maybe this is FM's marketing ploy to get people to upgrade.

With their long and distinguished history of "questionable" dyno reporting, they've gotta konw the regulars are gonna jump in and **** all over them for this.

I'd like to know what Hydra does to make so much power. Apparently I'm naive, and don't understand why fuel and spark calibrations make more power on different platforms. Its not atomizing the fuel any better, not running any more manifold pressure...basically their claiming the old link wasn't properly tuned, and now they're running nitromethane in the caterham.
