1st dyno pull from my 1999 Saab 9-3 Viggen Stage 3
First pull of my 1999 Saab 9-3 Viggen on the Dyno today... Dyno Dynamics Dyno aka the "heart breaker Dyno". Put down 226whp/270wtq. Not bad for a car with 190k miles!
For comparison, a Chevy s10 with a v8 350 swap put down around 260wtq and a V6 4th Gen Camaro put down 120whp. Needless to say, I was pretty happy with my numbers.
Also, I am still running a stock viggen Intercooler and it was in the high 80's today. The operator also didn't listen to my instructions about rolling into the throttle to prevent overBoosting (which then lowers the Boost once the computer recognizes it).
From what I've read online, Dyno Dynamics Dyno's often run 12% to 14% lower than a DynoJet Dyno. So if those numbers are accurate, it probably would have been around 255whp/305wtq on a Dynojet.
vw rabbit turbo diesel autocross race
first time out racing the diesel rabbit, 2 days after buying it, on one hour of sleep after spending 36hrs straight preparing it for this race. It was a high-adrenaline environment, and I was wearing steel toe boots!
Managed to beat an integra, a talon AWD turbo, a lotus elise turbo, a bigblock corvette and a rotary powered mg before getting eliminated. what fun!
