I got my car on the dyno and it only made 129rwkw.

this is what i have done..

Mild Proformace Crow Cam
Boxed K&N Pod Filter n Big mouth intake
Genie extractors custom high flow cat
Lukey 2.5 Exhaust System
3.4.5 Lsd
Fully adjustable shiftkit

Should i be getting more then 129 or does it should about right..

From what I saw at the recent ACF dyno day a standard 4.0l only gets between 103 to 114rwkw depending on the individual motor, so that seems OK seeing as you have only put on a better exhaust, improved intake & mild cam. Check out the dyno results on the ACF forum to see how you compare. The diff & shift kit will only improve the delivery of the power to the ground, not increase it.
Found an EL with similar mods to yours that went 135rwkw on the day. The +150rwkw N/A engines appear to be far more modified than yours though.

what were the AFR's like?
has the ignition system been neglected?
Air filter clean?
Hot day when recorded?
Hows the compression/headgasket?
Fuel filter been replaced ever?
Is the auto worn?
Does that particular dyno read lower than others?
What cam are you running?
Has it been dialled in properly?
Are you running any dizzy advance or chip/tune?
Cat converter or muffler partially blocked?

Sounds about right. I had much the same mods on my old motor and only got 120 rwkw when dynoed with an auto. :(

Sounds about right for the mods. A better cam and extractors could push you to mid 130's, add on a tune for 135-140 and some headwork to venture well past the 150rwkw mark.

As mentioned earlier in the thread.. anywhere from 95-110rwkw seems normal for a stock 4L.

Don't get too caught up in the dyno readings - dyno's are there just as a benchmarking/tuning tool. No 2 dyno's are the same. What really matters is how quick you can get down the quarter (or how fast you can get to work! :mrgreen:)

If you want to be pushed back into your seat, you don't need kw, you need TORQUE! Get yourself a turbo kit or another 2 cylinders. Haha
