i posted in an earlier thread that when put on a dyno, my car put out a whopping 90hp at the wheels as stock...and 145 hp at the wheels after a custom ecu was fitted and tuned (basically the same as a cs2/3 or maybe evo 3 map?). i have since run a 1/4 mile and achieved a dismal 14.5 sec run (best of 4 runs, others were 14.6 x 2 and 14.7)...
engine has less than 30k miles on it, running 1.2 bar boost(trails off to 0.8 up the rev range), have custom front mount cooler, have custom 3" exhaust from the turbo back, platinum plugs, k&n pod filter, power pipe etc...fuelling is near perfect at 11.8 afr for 95% of the rev range.
basically wondering why i am down on power? some have mentioned about pulling fuses for the traction control etc which i was told that they did pull the fuse on the dyno...so why with all my mods would i read just under a stock figure?? the only thing i can think of which might sap a little power is my 18" wheels which are quite heavy...but i cant see how they would subract more than a few %, (especially since it looks like i am close to 30% down in power from what i should be???)
anyone have a clue as to what could be wrong? i have no warning lights and car drives smooth and fast(idles perfect, no smoke either)..tho obviously not as fast as i thought.
