yeah, but either way, would be fun numbers to compare.

Is it done yet? I have been following this thread as I am planning a turbo system . I am not sure if I want to go full DIY or a greddy based DIY. I live like 30 min from Begi, so if this works out well, I could maybe at least save on some shipping by going up there to buy some stuff.

When these are finished, will there be any sort of groupbuy or anything?

Or when we get word they're ready, do we just order from Begi's site?

You can rest assured you'll know when the dp is shipping because I'm gonna make a big f'n deal over it.


1991BRG, did they tell you your baseline dyno results?

A quote from Stephanie's email:

The dyno #s are about what I expected. 146 rwhp / 135 torque. As you can see by the fuel curve, the car needs a little tuning on the top end. Can yall do that? I would offer to do it, but I know nothing about the e-manage.



Thanks,

Stephanie

How much boost are you running? Those numbers seem low for the potential your setup has in it.

About 5-6 psi. Haven't had a chance to get my car to a dyno and properly tune my car. While the car is at BEGi, I am also thinking of buying a wideband O2, so I can tune my car and up the boost.

Hmm.... Must be a heartbreaker dyno. I put down 167rwhp 157rwtq @ 6psi on a dynojet with my greddy. That would be right in line with your numbers if you were on a mustang. If you have the graphs, please post them in the dynos & timesheets section.

Hopefully you can be at the dyno when the test your car after the dp is on so you can tweak on your tune. Free dyno time

Looking forward to seeing before & after dyno graphs!

Yep. It is a dyno jet. It uses a standard correction factor of 1.03.
