Stock Dyno was 245 Mustang WHP (21PSI, 93oct)
After Mods w/ stock tune was 334WHP/296WTQ (24PSI, 93oct)
After Tune w/ tune by me is 381WHP/368WTQ (26PSI, 93oct) *No knock, no timing pull....*
*Estimated* brake horsepower (like a manufacturer rates a vehicle) is usually RWHP x 1.15 for my specific vehicle = about 440, but who knows. BHP means nothing anyways.

Horsepower sells cars, torque wins races.

These facts above are the main reason you should not be adding mods to your car unless you plan on tuning it, unless you are doing it for cosmetic, or acoustic reasons.

I'm laughing my tush off because he has no clue what it even is.. I love when guys of this exact breed get near me in their corvette.

The ranger is my "luxury vehicle"... comfort, soft ride, the ability to go over small medians between lanes, all very nice! Not to mention 60lbs of sound deadener strategically installed make for a ride quieter than Lexus or Cadillac.

I posted this pic in a different thread. Your description of the S-10 is funny cause I live like 1,800 miles away and have the same situation. ( I posted this picture on another Real Pansy Site and got banned cause they locked they thread saying that it's not nice to make fun of other peoples vehicles. I was banned for a couple weeks cause I PM'd the Mod my opinion and he took offense.) Thats when I found this much superior website :)

How did you dyno your AWD car on a RWD dyno? Did they have rollers for the front wheels?

Dang I didnt know that EVOs were pushing 20psi from the factory.

yeah, its like 20-21 stock, then tapering to 17psi by 8000rpm. - thats WITH 8.8:1 Compression too!!

One reason why I love my 4G63 engine, and chose that over the subaru EJ25 (2.5L, Flat-4, 8.2:1, 14PSI Max)

I wish I could fit a 4G63 in my truck, maybe I could do the old 4G64 Front/Rear Mounted engine.

Dyno has rolling front end, and I had to set the Active Center Differential to Locked Setting.

because many people in America believe that "there is no replacement for displacement"

In reality there mostly 2 limits to how much power an engine can produce:

1 - How much fuel can be delivered to the engine?
2 - How well the engine can be built / (how strong are the parts)

Not "How BIG is the engine"

One of my favorite videos: http://www.howstuffworks.com/turbo.htm#

Glad you think so, if everyone liked my mods I'd have a bunch of copycats to contend with.

Thanks!
