The dyno was definitely under reading. Winston's mps only made 408whp where he usually makes in the 420's on the same dyno ... just my 2c..

Didn't it break at the end of the BMW fanatics dyno day?

Maybe the load on the rollers was off

I am not sure bud. He did 420 something at the bmw day and made 20hp less this time so very possible..

I see my power was slightly above Oom Piet's.
http://www.nfadditives.co.za/Events.php?sort=Power

But if you compare it to Mark's power (328hp & 451nm) then it is low. If I recall correctly Mark is running low boost on stock internals

Mark runs higher boost and a gas flowed head and RS I Cam. I agree power is low, now we just need to find out why.
My previous dyno at Kar had my power at 260wkw and 560nm torque and I have made no changes to the car.


Car is down 20HP i would say, RS intake cam, better cooler and boost pipes will give you that.

300HP is not K04 territory Transformer- you have to do many supporting mods to do that. Perhaps in CT with you FWKW its the norm, but not here in JHB.


Hi Ash, could you please send me your contact number. Thanks
