do you still have the stock muffler and cat? Changing those out might help a little.

I couldn't see anything over 320 ft-lbs

Still damn good though.

Funny that even after my header upgrade I haven't noticed any difference in boost at 10.psi with the 3.4" pulley. I would have expected it to drop a couple of psi.

Gauging my hp increases since stock 240 bhp, I am estimating 300 bhp. At the wheels, I would expect it to be around 240 whp, so 247 is very good.

How'* the calibration on the dyno since the last time you were there, or is it a different shop?

At least you got a boost in torque and that'* what a street driven car needs.
Same shop, same dyno. I'm surprised you didnt see a drop in boost. I lost 1lb with the rockers and 2 lbs with the headers. i gained 2lb back witht the 3.2 pulley.

I'd be interested to see what your DHP does when you get it.

Stock mufflers and resonator. I changed the cat out to an SLP hi-flo cat with 02 spoof.

I still envy those numbers. But I hope you can get the PCM soon!

Wow, interesting stuff. I'm anxious to see the results with a DHP, my SSEi with a pulley doesn't feel as fast as the GTP. Is that the consensus that the SSEi PCM has more conservative settings than the GTP?

Cheers,

here is an interesting question, it was done on a chassis dyno, where the tires the same? if they werent, since it takes the HP and torque at the wheels, a differnt tire diameter would change your numbers due to the change in final drive ratio

were your other ones smoked? if so the overall diam would be smaller and giver you a lower final drive making it show more power. the new ones would be taller, taking more power to spin them

I wouldnt say smoked. They still had a fair amount of tread on them. I changed them due to some dealer problems when I was trying to get my wheel bearings replaced.
