is there any difference between the 99 and 00
One is a year newer than the other. That's about it.

One should always look at the torque per atmo per liter:

Torque / displacement (in L) / (boost+14.7) * 14.7

OR

Torque / displacement / kPa * 101

This number can NEVER go above about 72 ft-lbs per liter per atmosphere (without nitrous). (These are dynojet numbers). This calculation BTW is the same as BMEPper atmosphere (look up BMEP). BMEP is directly proportional to this number.

BTW a number that's close to 72 is a very well tuned setup. This applies to miatas, NA, FI, BMW, NASCAR, F1.

Applying this to FM's numbers, they got 83, which means the correction factor is screwed up. Assuming it's well tuned and they got 71, it means the numbers are 17% high. Applying this "reverse correction factor" to 300 hp, it means they got 255 hp from 11 psi. 8 years ago, Shiv and Scoots got 240 hp from 8 psi at sea level from a GT2560 and the old FM manifold, so it's believable.


BTW the gain is not so much a testament to the Hydra's prowess, but the Link's weakness - and the old numbers were probably screwed up. Probably a combo of bad tuning, and different conditions / dyno correction factors.

No real surprises.

BTW the new numbers are with a crank trigger?

And it wouldn't be a cure. If he's posted the 61st post in a thread. Nuke 'em from orbit, it's the only way to be sure.

There's an idea. I'll add another on the mob site. I am not sure of your time frame, especially with Paul MIA.

Are you using '94-97 axles or the newer one piece 99+?

Ill PM you on the mob as to not hijack this thread anymore. But in short, I dont have a time frame for any of it and I have 94-97 axles. The only thing I changed powertrain wise was the 99 head.

And Paul being MIA really doesn't help me much. Guess I'm flyin solo for installing the rest. Fingers are crossed.
