Welcome.
Looks like a decent daily driver setup.

Any plans to turbo?

Welcome to the board. That dyno image is really small and I can't make out the power. What kind of numbers are you making?

if i've translated correctly - it looks like 177cv at the shaft and 133cv at the wheels,

is there a rule of thumb, regarding power loss from the two readings, i'm pretty new to dyno's,

my DIY turbo set up was putting out 167hp at the engine and 138hp at the wheels, does this seem in line with the norm?

and welcome nofear ,

138HP at the wheels for a turbo setup is very low. Even the most basic greddy kit without intercooler would usually put out 155hp.

how did you measure you system at the motor? did you pull your engine and dyno it?


fwiw, if your motor DID dyno at 167BHP, your WHP would be closer to 142-145rwhp.

its the first car i've ever had dyno'd, it was a local garage with a rolling road, so was carried out whilst engine in the car,

thats good to know, i'll have a look for the chart and check the figures, the mechanic carried out 4 runs for me with a chart for each one, and a small improvement each time,
it may be worth mentioning i'm still running with the stock ECU so he was limited with what he could do for me,
main reason was to make sure the motor was running safe .

the main reason really for registering on here, the knowledge regarding after market ECU's and tuning, as i've taken the set up as far as i can going the DIY route, i now need to throw some money at it to squeeze the extra power out.
