Hey guys,

Just curious, what would a standard V8 with a T5 produce on a dyno?

I ran up mine yesterday and he said it wasn't breathing right and was producing 115rwkw on petrol. Just wondering what your thoughts are on this?

I am still waiting to get the graph off him and then i can post. Taking it back at end of Jan early Feb to get it properly tuned up on the dyno and said we could expect at least 150rwkw

Sounds low to me,my stock eb ghia v8 auto got about 119rkww stock or 159hp,manual should be at least 10 to 15 hp more.
The stock headers and exhaust are rubbish and should free up an easy 10-15 hp,1.72 rockers help a lot as well.
3.7 or 3.9 diff gears help move it along better.

115rwkw is top end. IIRC data_mine made sub 100rwkw with his DL.

Tuned, maybe 130rwkw.
