i've got a 1994 manual ED, was considering putting it on the dyno. its stock as a rock (hence the name) cept for 2.5" lukey exhaust. what figure would i expect, so as not to be dissapointed?

^^^ I'd say that would be about right maybe a tad more because your car has a manual tranmission. Auto's suck up a bit of that power.

I got a reading of 119rwkw from a 2.5 exhaust and a K&N panel filter. Bear in mind that EL's make a little bit more power in stock form compared to ED's, but i would expect between 110 and 115rwkw for yours.

Depends on how tired your engine is, but 110rwkw is definitely achievable

i always get a dyno when i get a new car.
1) it gives you a "before" dyno reading... for if you want to mod it
2) it can show how well the car is running and such
