Just attended a Dyno day on Sat.
Pumped out 339kw's at all four wheels on pump fuel. (450hp in the old money)
7000rpm redline.
1.9 bar boost.
170 degrees C/ 338 degrees F - temp out of the turbo
20 degrees C / 68 degrees F - temp after the intercooler

There was a 300C supercharged making 280kw's at the rear wheels, 375 hp.
I also managed to beat a R32 GTR making 310kw's at the rear wheels, 415hp.

Got plenty of laughs on the day wondering why a family car had vette brakes on the front. They soon realised why when it rolled onto the dyno.

Here are some pictures from the day.






Next outing, the drag strip in a few weeks time!

Then we'll strap on the JMF intake, new water to air cooler and pump in some race gas.

Changing the setup.
The motor cracked a sleeve in Cylinder 3 when running C16 & 37psi of the GT3082.
It didn't ping at all, it seemed that the block sleeve was just too weak.
Only cylinder 3 had the sleeve, the rest of the cylinders were fine.
The reason I had the sleeve done in Cyl#3 was only because the block had a scratch in it which couldn't be honed out.

It made approx 550hp at the wheels on a Dyno Dynamics when this happend.

Luckily nothing but the block and 1 piston was damaged.

I am now upgrading the a 2.4L block / manley long rods / custom SPS pistons and a GT3582 turbo.
Some other changes include a new intercooler setup and a 6 point bolt in cage.

The aim now is to make 550hp reliably on pump fuel.

The old engine internals will be used in another motor I am building for the AMG GALANT. We will be aiming for 450hp at the front wheels on pump fuel.
