They're fun. Just make sure you've got all of the components and fuel and ignition boxes too.

Have appointment at the dyno shop tomorrow to get a "before" number. Should be fun / never been. Hope it doesn't pretzel a skinny rod. Any guesses?

So far so good on the e-fan.

Super fun. $90.

Humid, maybe 45*. Mustang dyno. They do a lot of Subarus, so they left it in AWD mode.





The guys were great. We discussed a redline (5500 rpms), they walked me through what to expect (he would short-shift up to third, then roll in the throttle from about 2k up). If the power had not flattened out, he could add more RPM's on subsequent pulls.





The car has: B cam, TME exhaust, no cat (for now), and magnets on the fuel line to align the gas atoms.

As you know, the same car will generate different numbers on different dynos. They are a tool to measure change. When I go back to the same dyno, with the turbo, they can tell me what the change is.




Apparently the car runs lean. The air-fuel ratio was in the 15 range. The tech was not too worried in my current NA set up, but said if it was a turbo, he would have aborted.





And red is horsepower.





Not bad for an old girl.

so Mr Brown wins something... 112/135 is pretty respectable for a 30yo 2.3l 4banger. Especially since stock was like 114/136

That's *very* healthy. My 91 put down 92 with a similar setup in a mustang dyno in similar conditions. Pretty good!

I can't take the credit. The RWC temp sender oil drain plug is worth 20 hp alone...

Gas atom alignment! That’s what I’ve been missing.

Scored a "smooth shifting and quiet" M47, with about half the mileage as my current unit, delivered for $100. So excited. Be nice to make the 1st to 2nd gear change in under ten seconds. In all seriousness, IMHO, a smooth gear box can make or break a car. Mine is, uh, broken. Really ruins the experience. Should be able to survive my "operation mild tee."

Nice. Your "broken" one is probably a million times better than mine...

ORLY?

You've got one of the strongest NA engines we've even heard of and you want to mess with it?
