Tesla Model S P85D Shocks the Dyno with 864 ft-lbs of Torque

December 27th, 2014

We had some time with a brand new Tesla Model S P85D to do some initial testing before our StreetCarDrags event on January 18th, 2015 where we’ll have 12 Tesla Model S cars racing themselves and other exotic cars down the drag strip at Palm Beach International Raceway.   Since the Florida weather provided us with pouring rain all day and the track was closed, performance testing wasn’t quite an option, although as you’ll see later, we did some launches in the rain and the Tesla did amazing. Instead we headed over to see Jack at Horsepower Logic in Royal Palm Beach, FL to strap Read More

2015 Chevrolet Corvette C7 Z06 makes 760HP with minor modifications

December 24th, 2014

LMR added some minor modifications to a 2015 Chevrolet Corvette C7 Z06 which added over 110 horsepower to the wheels on their DynoJet.   The modifications included a different size supercharger pulley, American Racing 2″ headers, X-Pipe and a custom LMR ECU tune. In stock form the Z06 put down 559 horsepower and 543 ft-lbs of torque and after the modifications and tuning the results were impressive at 661 horsepower and 626 ft-lbs of torque.   Using a 14% drivetrain loss on the 7 speed manual transmission that puts this Z06 at 760HP. Check out the dyno graphs and videos below. Read More

McLaren 650S vs MP4-12C on the Dyno

November 13th, 2014

Fabspeed recently dyno tested the all new McLaren 650S before working on tuning the car for additional power.  The McLaren 650S is powered by a 3.8L V8 Twin Turbo engine producing 641 HP through a 7 speed DCT transmission. On the DynoJet the McLaren 650S put down 569 horsepower and 451 ft-lbs of torque to the wheels.  This is 52 horsepower more than the 2013 McLaren MP4-12C they tested on the same dyno earlier. After some tuning and exhaust work to the 650S,  Fabspeed was able to increase the power to 620 horsepower and 509 ft-lbs of torque to the Read More

Lamborghini Huracan LP610-4 Dyno Results

October 29th, 2014

Editor: Rob Persiano   Evomsit recently put a new Lamborghini Huracan LP610-4 on their Mustang AWD dyno for some baseline testing before they begin their ECU tuning process.  The Huracan is rated by Lamborghini at 610 horsepower with it’s 5.2L V10 along with a 7 speed dual clutch transmission. On the Mustang AWD dyno the Huracan put down 490 horsepower and 353 ft-lbs of torque at the wheels in stock form and picked up another 20HP after the initial tuning by Evomsit..    While all dyno’s can read differently, the numbers seem a bit on the low side, as we tested our Lamborghini Read More

McLaren MP4-12C Fabspeed Motorsports Tune Testing

October 19th, 2014

Tuning and performance options have been quite limited for the McLaren MP4-12C as it’s a fairly new car and it takes time to get things moving in the tuning world.  We had some time testing the Fabspeed Motorsports Engine Turning Power Kit on the McLaren MP4-12C we’ve been working with over the past year.   The Fabspeed engine tuning kit for the MP4-12C has a list price of $5,295 and states  a 77 horsepower and 110 ft-lbs torque increase at the engine which would bring the McLaren from 616 HP to almost 700 horsepower. Since the MP4-12C we’ve been testing already Read More

Electric Miata Assault & Battery kills the tires on the Dyno with 1,350 ft-lbs of Torque

August 20th, 2014

John from LoneStar EV Performance in Houston, TX put his Assault & Battery Electric Miata on the dyno for the first time to see just how powerful the 2000 amp Zilla controllers feeding dual NetGain 9-inch motors are.  They initially had some trouble on the dyno since the instant torque of the electric motors caused the huge slicks to go up in smoke on the dyno rollers. After a few tries of slowly rolling into the power they were able to get somewhat of a clean dyno run with the Miata putting down an astounding flat 1,350 ft-lbs of torque from 0 to 3,000 RPM Read More

Dodge Challenger Hellcat on the Dyno

August 20th, 2014

The team over at K&N had some time with the all new Dodge Challenger Hellcat and strapped it to their DynoJet to see just how much horsepower Dodge’s new beast of a car is actually making.  The Hellcat did not disappoint, putting down an impressive 635 horsepower and 591 ft-lbs of torque to the rear wheels through it’s 8 speed automatic transmission.  Using a 13% driveline loss that puts the Hellcat at around 730HP and 679 ft-lbs of torque. Impressive numbers to backup it’s 10.8 @ 126 MPH run down the 1/4 mile last month.  Enjoy the video and dyno graph Read More

Tesla Model S Confuses a DynoJet Dyno

August 8th, 2014

Emmanuel out of Alberta Canada put his 2013 Tesla Model S P85 on a DynoJet dyno for a couple of pulls to see how much power it could put down.  It’s not clear what happened, but the Tesla’s instant torque apparently confused the DynoJet dyno, causing it to max out the torque readings at 2,000 ft-lbs of torque. Obviously that’s not correct, but the horsepower numbers were inline with his Tesla Model S P85 putting down a relatively flat 436 horsepower to the wheels across a wide range of speeds, likely 10 MPH to 130 MPH.  Tesla rates the Model S Read More

Lamborghini Aventador with Nitrous on the Dyno

July 7th, 2014

Kings Performance out of Orlando Florida took a Lamborghini Aventador and stuffed 4 large nitrous bottles in the front bonnet.  While we don’t have the dyno sheet, the video states that the nitrous pumping Aventador made 700 horsepower to all 4 wheels on the Mustang Dyno. We’ve seen stock Aventadors put down around 624 – 635 horsepower, so we’re roughly looking at a 75 wheel horsepower increase, enough to get this Aventador into the 800HP crank horsepower range. Watch and listen to the nitrous purging and the screaming Aventador get a work out on the dyno:

2015 BMW M3 F80 on the Dyno

June 23rd, 2014

EAS got their hands on a brand new 2015 BMW M3 F80 Sedan and gave it a few runs on their DynoJet Dyno.  BMW’s latest ///M has a 3.0L Inline 6 Twin Turbo engine rated at 425 horsepower and 406 ft-lbs of torque through a dual clutch transmission.   On the dyno the M3 put down 424 horsepower and 425 ft-lbs of torque to the rear wheels.  Using an estimated 13% driveline loss for it’s DCT transmission,  that puts the new M3 at 487+ horsepower. While the dyno numbers are certainly impressive no matter how you calculate it, we’ll reserve judgement Read More
