Formula for calculating Flywheel Horsepower:

Drivetrain loss on an FD RX-7 is about 18%. Therefore take 18 from 100, and you get 82. Then take the rear wheel horsepower figure and divide it by 0.82.

e.g. 217rwhp / 0.82 = 265fwhp

Yeah, for whats on the car its very good but I knew this as  it does shift.  Thing is I have now seen the graph, and its not particularly good.

I have a dip where the 2nd turbo comes on, and then between 5000 rpm and 5500 rpm I go from 170 ATW to 255 ATW which seems pretty steepfor 500rpm.  This may explain why in the wet I can just light it up in 3rd on the 2nd turbo.  I suppose this is a good thing though, better to have the power there.

Trouble is right after my power actually drops by about 10, before gradually rising up to the 274 ATW then tailing off after about 6500.  Now Im just wonder what it would be like if the end of my power graph was smooth and not the mess it looks on paper.  Should be a fair bit to come.  I think ill leave it pretty much as is though.  No point in getting a Power FC for the small gain if any and I dont like them.

Cheers

I wonder if there\'s any chance that the weird look of the graph is wheel-slip related?  I assume it was on rollers?

Hi Lee,

What boost was that dyno\'d at ?? I guess numbers are  high for the mods mainly to do with the fact when it was dyno\'d  it had a freshly built engine ?

Pretty sure its not wheelspin Iain.  Dyno Dynamics have a good repuatiton for not having problems with it.  You really can feel the 2nd turbo kick in so I believe the graph.

Brian, I guess it may well be because that was dynoed on a new engine.  It is running 1bar boost though.  Pretty high.  Im doing a dyno day in Crawley next month (just power run) so it will be interesting to see how it compares.

Cheers
Lee

Brian,

The day next month I am doing is at Austec Racing in Crawley.

http://www.austec.co.uk/

Its basically just a club dyno day with the SXOC, ut as I live there it would have been rude not to go!

Places are full, however I asked for two spaces - one for me and one for my mate Ben with his FD.  He will have an Apexi fitted and mapped by then though as he needs it to sort the car, so chances are he wont be bothered about the power run as he would get a figure from mapping the Apexi.

Ill ask him if he still wants this space bearing in mind the above.  Its MArch the 20th, and its £35.  Its only the normal club day power runs though, and not mapping etc.

Cheers
Lee
