Default 27 dollars later and this is wat ive got to show for it

this is wat i started out with,
280-crank horsepower
240-wheel horsepower

300lbs tq-crank
280lbs tq-wheels

1/4mile 15.6 somewhere around there

0-60/unsure

0-100/unsure

0-top out/unsure

i bought a high flow cone filter, and boy did it make a difference...
i didnt think it would do much, but it did, also on a sidenote, the noise that comes outta my supercharger is rediculous, i scare people all the time. but anyway it seemed to up my cars performance greatly, im thinkin im gonna go for exuast next




so i went to the dyno a few days ago,

and this is wat im packin these days...

306hp-to the crank-255hp-to the wheels

376tq- to the crank-317tq-to the wheels

1/4mile/14.964

0-60/6.46

0-100/9.23

0-top out/not yet known? dun dun dun

all that with one mod, that only cost me 27 bucks

Welcome to BC!!! You're new home is here, so you might want to hang a do not disturb sign on the door of your old home.

As for the cone filter gaining you 66 HP and 37 lb ft of torque, I am going to have to inform you that:
1. the dyno you ran on is either out of whack.

2. Your car has mods done prior to the cone filter (i.e. rockers, cam, PEM'*, headers, smaller SC pulley)

3. They gave you someone elses #'* and gave a higher output motor some #'* that read:

200 WHP -253 CHP
230 LB FT @ wheels
290 LB FT @ Crank

You should see the mod list of some of the guys who are just achieving those HP/TQ #'*. Those #'* also would put a 00-03 SSEi in the 14.0 @ 99 MPH.

i hate to do this, but there is no possible way you have 255whp with nothing but an air intake.

you must have some other mods on the car..

Before this goes too far.

Let'* say Welcome! ... good to have you aboard on the club.

As far as the dyno runs, it'* possible weather conditions etc changed or something else is off. Typically we haven't seen that type of change from a filter only. That would be very odd to have it add that kind of power. However... when I swapped my filter to a high flow, it was a noticable feeling.

You started out with 240hp CRANK and 280tq CRANK. Those numbers are not at the wheels.

Find another dyno, and ask for your money back from the last one.

Default the dyno f***ed up

so i went back to the dyno, after i noticed that the papers where made out to a john bosthouse, now my name is michael, so it turns out i did get the wrong papers, they gave me a free run on the track, but they said they wont give me my money back for the dyno, i know ive got more power im just not sure how much, so im gonna go somewhere else to find out, ill post the results of that, ALSO i had my car in for its tune up, and it turns out the previous owner had headers, and smaller pulleys installed, so i didnt start out with a stock car! also they said something was done with the computer, so im not sure wats going on with that but im gonna find out tmrw.
