Here's my latest set of dyno's.

The one dated April 3, 2006 was done after I had my coils replaced and I installed a set of Racing Beat plug wires. You can see some improvement on this chart from my previous one of where I had plugs replaced.

The other two dyno's are from April 17, 2006. These are dyno's taken after I installed the Agency Power underdrive crank pulley. One of these dyno charts is what they are using for their marketing (with my permission) incase you noticed a similarity from the one on their webpage. Definately see and feel some power down low. Minor peak power gains but the torque is definately improved. The pulley got me into the 190hp range. I may get some more hp after I install an exhaust since I am still running stock.

Hey there guys! Thread bump with an actual dyno picture attached! I am preparing my car for the upcoming meet and the tuning shop and myself decided on running a dyno before and after to compare the results at the same dyno shop.

Here is a graph of my car before the mods.

They have already installed all of the products that I purchased and will be running another dyno run either tomorrow or Wednesday. I'll be sure to post up those results as well once I get them.

Base car mods include:
Borla exhaust, SR Motorsports flywheel

Post mods of car include:
SR Motorsports flywheel, Racing beat Revi/Air Duct, RP Bonez high flow cat, Turbo XS exhaust MS Front bumper/Rear bumper.... no comments about these please..

One more thing that I will say is that they only took the car up to 7,250 and I havent had a chance to ask them why this was done yet... Have to get back to you on that. I'll ask that for the next run, after the mods are installed, to take it up to at least 8,500...

Here is the graph...

(The car sounds so damn wicked with the RP Supercat/Turbo XS exhaust)!!!!

Hey there guys.. They dyno'd my car after the installation of the mods and the final whp number is 185. Not too bad, but the official number of my car comes once I get it tuned by Scott this weekend!

I cant wait! I'll post that graph on Sunday night most likely. We will be performing WOT dyno tuning on Saturday and streetability tuning on Sunday. You will most likely see 5 more graphs posted up from N/A and FI cars within the next week...

GT Motorsports still has my car right now though because I wanted them to install a resonator that a lot of people have had success with for keeping the noise levels down. It's a straight through design with mild muffeling built in. Should be just what I need. This car is wickedly loud and needs some calming down. It's supposed to drop the overall rating by 3 or 4 db's but more importantly keep the buzzing noise to a minimum....

Thankx to everyone that recommended the resonator to me!! I hope it works as well as it has for you!! Thats for sure!!

bump is perfectly normal and your engine seems to be operating very well.

New coils installed today. No time to dyno this weekend or next but hopefully I will be able to show a change over my last run and show the difference new coils make. That will be the only change since my last run.

Does your car feel any stronger to warrant another dyno like mine did? let me know when you plan on going and I will try and stop buy for support, then we can get some Williams Bro's BBQ!!

Just back from Dynolab in Marietta. I'm not sure what's going on with the chart above 7K RPM but it did the break up thing 3 times. Each time we moved the contact locations. I then cleared the memory and tried it again for this 4th run of the day which was the best but this breakdown in the signal is really bothering me. Two other 8's ran and did not have this problem.

My change before this run is new coils only. No modifications. There is a modist gain over the last run.

Session #3: https://www.rx8club.com/showpost.php...3&postcount=24
186.8 HP, 137.1 FPT

Session #4 (today):
190.6 HP, 138.9 FPT

Sivler8, that's the dyno computer not being fast enough to keep up with the data input at high rpm, or at least that's what the dyno guy told me ... not too many engines running past 7500 rpm

I took my car to Mazcare and Charlie pulled the plugs. Found a mixed set of plugs. New type leeding and old type trailing. My car flooded around 17,000 mi. and the dealer only put in new leeding ones. The trailing have been in for 26,000 miles. He changed my plugs out for a brand new set and the car is running better now. He seems to think that could have made a difference on the dyno. I really don't feel like paying $50 again just to see if the plugs were the problem. Wish there was such a thing as a free dyno!

Maybe, maybe not. Mine was done the same day with out any of noisy lines. I'm not convinced that it's not the dyno but plugs and coil issues have shown up like this before.

could it be your little HKS ignition gizmo. Sorry, I cant remember what it was called. Your car has always had smooth outputs, without that signal breakup, even before the addition of the HKS unit. But you also have very few miles too.

I'm not referring to the ragged lines, but rather the missing data points, I know for a fact that my coils & plug wires are in A-1 shape when it happened on my runs

Roger that. I don't know that it's an rx8 issue but maybe a dynojet ignition pickup issue. i have not seen your graph but if it drops out at hi rpm I gotta wonder if it's to many events to capture. No definitive answer, just guessing.

Exhaust with racing kat, DSC and PCM reflash, racing intake duct, new pcm wiring loom, 41/9 rear LSD @ 16Kg, engine light tuning by Astra, direct steering rack, running with Shell V-Power 100 octane fuel.
Standard car had about 200hp ECE95 (SAE equivalent) @ the crank.....as usual here in Europe.

yeah lets stick with the actual measure power and not use the "run down" calculated flywheel power. that will only cause confusion and arguements.

so alex you started with about 180 at the wheels and now have just ove r208 at the wheels . thats great. what temps are you seeing in the exhaust- could the regular CAT stand the heat from that tune? is anyone running a Supercharger on the street with one of Astra's tunes?
