Dyno Testing the 92 SSEi
Back in college (auto tech) I had the opportunity to dyno test the Bonny with a heavily modified 2.2L Chrysler Turbo (or 2.5maybe don't know chrysler ****), and a 5.7 TBI chev 1/2 ton. The machine was a Snap-On Emmisions Tester (which is actually a Dyno and an Emmisions tester). We went opne night after clas with the instructor (1/2 ton) and did the runs. Mind you by, the test settings really all we could do was a comparison. I had the problem of the engine shifting gears when we got to the set speed ie. not optimum HP to RPM level but I scored 125 hp at the wheels. The 2.2L scired 112 HO and the 5.7L scored a scarce 105. Comparison only. I ended up draging the 2.2 on a street later that night and marginally won only because I had bigger balls and a SRS system in the face of oncoming traffic. I think he might have taken me in the 75-100kph range (40-65mph) but after that his *** was grass. The race got ruined by oncoming traffic and I was in the right lane. That is my experience with drag racing. I have had some kids pull up to me in rice rockets at a light and rev their engines for a race. I usually just rev it also and then when the light turns watch them race off and laugh. The seem to have this impression that a thrush muffler gives them a super car.? I like a 4-door sleeper...
