Wow! Looks like we have ALOT of interest in this dyno day! Great!

Once we hit the 10 participants (just shy one now), I'll add a standby list in case one of the original people can't make it.

Just wondering, next time you talk to the owner...

I'm building a new exhaust for the car, and if he's has/is willing to install an o2 sensor into a bung instead of using the stand alone sniffer (I have a cat) I will install the bung, if not, I probably won't bother.

If it's better for me to call him myself, just let me know.

Thanks!

My first child is due that day but if nature does not call I would like to be added to the stand-by list.

I want to see what kind of difference the 284/276 cams make on my e30 m3.

Cheers,

So what numbers does everything think that they'll be making???

I'll start - I expect atleast 222 / 222 at the wheels.

222? I would have guessed higher for you, based purely on it's bad-a$$ sound :)

I'd like to think a bone-stock drivetrain 95 M3 could pull 210rwhp, but who knows. This is a chance to get a baseline number before I start looking at a couple off-season mods. We'll have to do another one late next spring.

BTW, someone off the waiting list may get my spot, depending on the news from RRT. They're trying to figure out why I'm blowing white-ish smoke out the exhaust at certain points on track. It's a mystery for now.

I'm hoping to break 300whp. I'm guessing 310/315. Hopefully the weather will be about the same so I can get a good judge of increase.

It's looking like i can't make that date after all. The car's OK and I want to do it, but the schedule's working against me. You can go ahead and add somebody from the wait list. If there's enough leftover interest from the standby list, maybe we can get together on another date. I'd be willing to try to arrange it.

Everyone getting ready for this?!? I hope so!

10-Day forecast shows some good, cold weather. 42 Low, 58 High. :biggrin:

And here's a pretty good calculator to convert dyno dynamics wheel horsepower to crank horsepower:http://www.to4r.com/calcs/enginecalc.php

Just fill in the rwhp in section 1 and click "crunch it".

I haven't talked to Ed @<hidden> York yet about this. I believe he likes to start around 9am.

The list is in order of signup, not in order of running. We'll figure that out next week, but I don't see a problem with you being last.

Yes. You'll just pay Ed York the $50. He said he'd take credit cards too.

What did you end up putting down? I unfortunately didn't get to see you run.

JC5
11-01-2009, 08:56 AM
254 hp with 156,000 miles on the clock. Going to rebuild the engine over the winter and spring. Throw in a couple extra things, and see what happens.

As you may have noticed the engine has a few issues with a coolant leak ( maybe cracked water jacket in the head ), and blow by probably from worn rings.

Ed gave some insight to the rebuild, and offered some machine shop contacts he uses.

Good run...got exactly what I expected. 303hp and 311tq. I had one run with a 344tq but that was a operator error. Ed forgot to reset the car ID so the the Dyno thought it was measuring the M5 that went before me, and since both cars were so close in numbers Ed didn't catch it at first. I got a video of my run which includes Jonathan's Epic FAIL of getting in the way. :tongue:

305 hp, 347 lb, on the second run. I would guess once you rebuild your motor, you will easily beat those numbers. I wish you luck with that, that's a fun project...
