On saterday i had my car dyno'ed at DID in crest hill. It was thier free dyno day so me and a friend went thier just see what we would put down. MY friend went first he has a 02 lightning his numbers were 385hp/524tq. With the mods in my sig i got 234hp/223tq???:confused: It was a mustang dyno so i know that it would be a little higher #'s on a dynojet. But does that sound right? I was kinda disappointed in my numbers.

Yup, that's way low. I betcha you just need timing and boost. If it were me, I'd shoot for 20 degrees at WOT with an 11.8 AFR. That pulley is a little big for that set-up, you should be able to run a 2.9" no problem. The low TQ tells me the car is very rich.

I'm in Houston all week, I'll shoot you a PM when I get back and settled. Not sure what's waiting for me at home (project-wise).

well mine was way lower that I planned to.. When I went I got 237WHP and tq was 246.9.. Then when I brought my tuner to my dyno guy he tweaked it a lil bit and we got 256Whp so I was a bit happier.. I was also able to drop to a 3.2.. My trans doesnt like it.. Soon it will have to be replaced..

234 is really low for that car... You're missing a lot of power somewhere.

What are you running for a downpipe and manifolds?

Do you have a tuner?? Maybe you can post up your file and someone can tinker with it.

Thanks Bob. I have pacersetter headers and slp loudmouth. And as for a tuner i do not have one.... It has not been tuned for what i have installed on it now. I have installed the 3.0, intercooler,headers,rockers and valve springs with the same tune i had for just a 3.4. I have not drove it much since all that stuff was put on. Im looking into getting a scanner next. Any ideas whats going on with those numbers? Thanks

If your tuned just for the 3.4, tuning alone would make a huge difference. You should be able to throw more timing at it safely. If I knew how to use my tuner better Id offer some help.

Thanks for the offer fish. It looks like i need all the tuning help i can get. Hopefully Ron will be able to find some hidden horsepower.

Is a stock motor worth having tuned to get a little more out of it?

It wouldnt hurt. With an aftermarket PCM, you can even (stock) benefit from better fueling, and crisper shifts, and thats from a one size fits all tune. So a custom (just for your car) tune would benefit you moreso than just an aftermarket PCM, not much, but it all depends on the cost and who the tuner is. But like I said, you will notice a difference, but not nearly as much as John will, especially from all the work he's done to his car.

A basic tune up and a tune would definatly help I would think. You could tune for more performance or better MPG. :D
