Got a chance to get started on quantifying my "fake" PEM this afternoon.
Testing is FAR from over, but after a few runs tuning the Volumetric Efficiency table, preliminary results indicate:
- Little change in WOT KR (median 0.92 versus 1.08 before)
Increase in WOT VE% across rpm band 3600 to 5600, with greater increase the higher the rpm (I am limited to 5800 rpm shift points by stock valvetrain, currently)
No change (positive or negative) in WOT VE% below 3600 rpm
Projected 8 to 10 additional hp at peak (5200 rpm)
I think this is going to be $30 well spent, as well as a very good (perhaps, necessary) supporting mod for rockers and springs.
EDIT: when I finish my testing, I promise to stop hijacking this thread and start my own.
