Ride: 2003 BA XT

Power: 141 rwkw

Location: Perth
WA, Australia

Okay, I've had my Ba for just over 4 weeks now, and I decided to give her a run on the dyno.

Went to APC Performance in Wangara, and while they are pretty good, I payed $90 for like 15mins on a dyno.

Pretty happy with the result for a bone stock car though, 185.3HP or 138.18rwkw.

The tourqe curve was very flat, and you can see where the exaust causes a bottleneck.

I should be able to get to 200HP easy with exaust, extractors, high flow cat, and typhoon intake and my fordmods sticker(that comes sunday).

I took photo's and video's too :)

See http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aSK4DPN_74g for a video.

Apparently that's it suffocating.

It needs cold air intake, and exaust etc.

Plus it's running s**t fuel.

high octane fuel makes quite a difference in power.

When I ran 98 octane, I felt about the same differnce as (a typhoon intake and K&N) which although is small may have given me an extra 8rwkw.

Depending what im doing i run 91 or 98.

I found that the car runs smoother on 98 ron and that it it took off a little better.

Typhoon intake and a full exhaust would be very nice. I think that the ford motor suffers choking too much.

They strap seatbelts to the ground and the back. or they can chock the front wheels I'm guessing.

EDIT: BEATEN! Those ford guys are so much faster than my poor Holden outfitting. :(

I more or less dyno'd mine out of curiousity, it was rather fun :)

I didn't see any slings attached, and I didnt even see a point they could have fixed them from, saying this I didn't see the back of the car while it was on, but I watched the whole time, and all he did was put little wedges in front of the car :/

He removed them and then moved the car off, somehow ? That part puzzled me.

He had a little trouble getting it on, but soon as it was on it just sat there rolling (it's auto).
