Am i right in saying Simon that the Spoon actually decreased the power (torque and BHP)? Good idea by the way. Now just got to find how to do it I will bring mine on Sun, and i also have an 'interesting' comparison on it that you might find interesting. Thats all i shall say for now :wink:
Here is the dyno with the recently added TODA. It's really made the car a bit of a monster. An amazing gain in torque that you can really feel. Best mod I've ever bought. I'm quite poor now of course.
The VTEC window is 3300rpm to 5000rpm which is pretty insane but that what the composite of cam angles dictated where the most torque is. I've lost a little bit of peak power but I don't stay at 8k rpm that long and it's the area under the curve that matters (I'm telling my ego that anyway). The is no VTEC dip what so ever and I can even feel it engage. I can't see how I could put any more power down even with the steps I've made to make the care lighter.
I've coloured the mapped TODA graph in red because the before and after were the same colour. Thick line is before mapping with the TODA.
Cheers for that Simon In answer to Jonster question..... It can be a bit of a giggle 8) in this weather in 1st, 2nd, 3rd i can wheel spin (even did it in 4th the other day!!!) on a dry track though once out of third gear its awesome :lol: (horrific mpg though :!: )
sorry meant to say once out of 1st gear on a dry track 8) i dont think im going to get much else done. The only thing is to get the petrol sorted out as it is over fueling at the mo and hide those gauges apart from that everything is sweet
You've got one sweet ride for sure. Hope to join you at a track day some time to see her let loose.
If you get your ECU mapped specifically for how she breathes you will definately get more power and economy. Part throttle tuning makes a big difference to smoothness and not just economy too. Guy did a spot on job on mine recently.
Was discussing that yesterday with Dan whilst they were photographing my car for Jap Performance. Its in the pipeline, but nothing else or else im going to have to re-mortgage the house :!:
i know i was a lucky lad and got quite a find, but boy it could have been so the other way though
I had a word with Guy about those,not far off finished he tells me.Reckons a solid 20brake :shock: 8)
I added a seperate post in the gallery so as to keep the dyno section freed up if you know what I mean
As stated the car is transformed,especially when changing gear at redline straight back into the middle of the wave of torque :twisted:
The acceleration is now linear through the vtec point with the change being mainly aural,but there's still a small tap,rather than kick,to be felt :wink:
We compared your Toda dyno and it kicks my torque in the teeth,mine showing a little more top end bhp,but not a very useful few (When I say more,I mean the same peak but a little longer)
More test piloting tomorrow is on the cards 8)
Roll on the mid-week trackdays,and lets hope my fitness regime kicks in too.No more pies for me!! :wink:
