I am super happy with the results. I made a whole 20hp more than I thought I would!!
I guess it's a healthy powerband for such an old car (ie: the shape of the curve..), but just to ask: why would you dyno it?
Good to know what you've got to work with.
I wish I could find a dyno near by that didn't want 100+ for 3 runs
Yeah, my repair shop has a dyno and they want $165 for three runs. When I asked them why I couldn't buy three, then use one at a time as I made modifications, they explained most of the cost is for the prep work, not for wear and tear on the equipment.
Bollocks. Just get a GPS and track it that way. I know some people have made firmware for Garmins that will track acceleration and calculate HP/tq that way, but I can't remember who's done it.
no track nearby either
Closest is either infineon or Laguna Seca....which I do want to run at some point
HAHA the cressida was awesome. I'm still convinced the Cressida and the Nissan Stanza were designed by the same guy
and the corolla of the same era
Looks like you got me beat by 21WHP. EDIT - Oh, 1985. Cool.
the shape of that torque curve is :bowthefuckdown: though.
Since adding a lightweight flywheel gets you through the powerband faster, will it change the general shape of my torque or HP curve? Or maybe just smooth it out?
On that dyno I had the stock 16lb flywheel, and have since upgraded to a 9lb.
Shouldn't change it much if at all. Probably all you will see is a little more erratic of a line.
