Stupid monkeee

Posted 19-09-2012 at 01:13 PM by monkeee

So I did do that independent dyno run at MMS (in regards to my "lack of torque").

Car runs 197kw (265HP)/390Nm on the MMS dyno. Same dyno as RaceTorque but MMS do dyno runs in 3rd (boost is actually not 17/18psi, more like 19/20psi already).

As I learn more about dyno readings from teh interwebs, p-wrx and workshops I am content...actually more than content with the car (i.e. Im not hooked on one dyno run or ten dyno runs for that matter).

I said it on facebook so I'll repeat it here. Dyno readings to me now are like dating girls, both are utterly confusing and both empty my wallet.

Dave (Master D) got me thinking when he told me to put ma crack pipe down and enjoy the car. He is right. Considering where the car has come from to where it is now I can't be anything but happy with it.

As silly as it sounds I tend to forget that it's only a WRX (lol) that initially had little more than ~120kw/250Nm atw in stock form.

So I'm going to heed the advice of a few guys (Russ, Burke, Dave, Sir Kato, etc) and just keep hitting up skidpans and the odd Barbs outing and keep improving (slowly...very very slowly).

    Nice one.

    Always handy for the 'backup'.

    What did MMS charge for the power run?

    Also for your comparisons, 'the internet' says the difference between a hub and roller dyno is about 17%. I personally haven't seen any back to backs for the ASG to MMS dyno, but you currently have 265hp which could be ~ 290 to 310hp on the hub dyno. Gives you more of a comparison.

    Lol Andrew. Do you know how hard it was to say no to the full set of brembos on sale recently for $2000 off a spec-C?

    I'll give the new brake-pad/rotor/fluid a go when the current pads run out. I think it's more me learning to brake better/smoother, using what I have.
