    Finally got my car on the rollers at work today!! Finally!!

    Happy with the results, she is an old girl at 12yrs at 150K so she has done me proud! Although the engine is coming out soon for a 2JZ-GTE swap

    Anyway, the best run was:

    203bhp
    202lb/ft

    More than anything I am impressed with how she holds 190-200bhp from 5,000 to 6400RPM






    Mods:
    M50 Inlet
    De-Cat
    Custom Air Intake

    I would have expected a little more, especially with the mods you have, but all in all, it's doing better than from the factory.
    Hopefully next time it'll be 300+!

    13bhp over stock... it aint really that bad

    Plus the poor ol' girl has got a cam sensor and lambda sensor faults so not too bad!

    She is coming off the road at the end of next month for the engine swap so next time I hope to see around 380

    hehee


    Ohhh I forgot to metion that is on the highest level of smoothing for the graph to look straight with no smoothing correction it made 209bhp but it hits that for a split second so I didn't see the point on posting that where the one above give a better idea on the real world output

    It'll be those little faults holding it back a bit.
    The cam sensor fault can cause the Lambda sensor to spot it.
    With that swapped, I'd expect something in the region of 215-220bhp.

    Yeah probs lol I have changed both the probe and cam sensor but faults still there... to be fair I just cannot be bothered with it now as its coming out the car but hey ho!

    25-30bhp from an intake, inlet mani and de-cat? Do you not think thats a lot? stock mapping too - tend to see those kinda increases from a map on a charged car

    Apparently the m50 mani on a 328 can increase bhp by 20

    Nevertheless still a good run.

    Nice one and hopefully she will push the hoped for figures when the wrinkles are ironed out.

    M3 Tim - I had it done where I work: www.awesome-gti.co.uk

    Dane, if i am honest I have a feeling that the timing might be out a tad as I did the head swap on her a while back and knowing my luck it will be that. At the time I chaned the vanos seals too but as mentioned i am happy with that the poor old girls engine sounds like a bag nails too so, haha all is good
