    Alright Guys, the wait is almost over! The race is almost definitely going down on wednesday, and in the meantime I thought I would post up this little treat.

    I was able to get some dyno time today, and along with my car, we also dynoed Jordan's (CO AVANT) and the Flying Spur. A couple quick notes before looking at the dyno:

    Dyno: Dynojet Research
    Room Temperature: 89*F
    Outside Temperature: 65*F
    Altitude: 5700ft
    Correction Factor: 1.24

    Car One - My Car - '02 Audi A4 1.8TQM 5spd

    Mods:
    Ecode Custom Tuned APR Stage 3+, APR Turboback Exhaust, APR FMIC, APR Test Pipe, Carbonio CAI 2nd Generation, Southbend OFE SS and Ecode Lightweight Flywheel, APR Snub Mount, AWE Center Vent Boost Gauge, Neuspeed Power Pulley, Apexi AVC-R, AMS Short Shifter, Forge 007

    Octane Run: GT PLUS 104

    Notes: Running on N75 and not AVC-R, and for some reason the numbers got off... my peak hp was 328.

    Mods: None

    Notes: As in my graph... the actual number is just a teeny bit higher... the peak horsepower was actually 508. Also, they couldn't find the tach wire, so they could only do horsepower.

    Octane Run: 91 Octane Pump Gas

    :cool:

    But is it just me or when you guys where comparing the APR vs. Revo, the APR'd car punched it 500rpm earlier? :dunno:

    That would explain the big descrepancy in hp/tq #'s.

    I don't know if you know much about dynos... but on the dyno you start from the very bottom of a gear and take it all the way to the end of the gear... the machine then plots out a graph of your torque and horsepower by measuring that. My turbo just spools 500rpm sooner than this other car's.

    No shit Kemosabe, but look at the dyno graphs. Your blue APR graph shows that you punch it 500rpm earlier than the red Revo graph. That's going to make your car spool quicker, and thus, produce more power compared to the other car at any given RPM.

    turbo spool is directly related to rpm... thus, the turbo will reach full spool the same time every time regardless of how early or late you 'punch it.'

    I'm not going to argue with you anymore. Complete waste of my time.

    correction... your the one that can't understand what I'm saying. I'll shorten it for you... what your saying isn't right... in reality my turbo does indeed spool sooner.

    So what I'm getting out of this thread is that I should use APR intake parts on my car. Okay, I can do that.

    The only difference will be turbo spool time. The power output after full boost has been achieved will be the same at any RPM, regardless of when the throttle was opened up.
