Mods are - Pod filter, upped boost, light flywheel, 2.5"stainless exhaust.
Start a build thread Eric -I KNOW you have some nice parts to show off
Nothing happening at the moment. I am waiting on Chris to assess my paint and see if he wants to paint it, then all the goodies go on!!:zlove:
Is the only difference between those two runs the boost pressure?
I think so.
Interesting. 3psi = 40kw. Nice.
Pretty good improvement with only 3-4 psi more.
And ill have to tee up a time with you soon. Now that all the silliness is over for another year.
I think the most interesting thing here is the complete difference in power curves
Low boost makes max power further up the range (170kmph)
High boost hits peak power at 140 and look at the gradient difference
Check out the scales though, they start reading at 100kw and what is I think equal to about 3krpm. The difference would be much less visually impressive if it was scaled normally. If I didn't know better I'd say someone with a major in journalism drew that graph
So is this with a stock ECU, no tuning?
Stock ECU. And no drawing of graphs!!
I didn't mean you made the figures up, plotting the data points and trend line is called 'drawing' a graph (at least at schools I went to it was). After studying sciences for a bit it becomes ingrained that poorly scaled graphs are worse than lying so personally I would be having second thoughts about taking a car to a workshop that 'draws' graphs like that, I may be reading to much into it though.
To be clear, what I think they've done is zoomed in on the area around peak torque because it gives a better distinction between the lines, you don't see them taking the same time to spool etc.
170ish for stock boost is norm. As is 215ish with those mods.
whats the question?
