A bunch of Detroit guys went to the dyno today. We also had a turbo Firehawk show up that had 586HP!!!! WOW!

My sheet (all stock, SAE corrected):


My pix:




Also tried bolting on a better filter (the numbers were WORSE, but no relearn)



Other pix:





It was a good time - for those of you that missed it - :cry:

Lamb, looks like you're right where you should be at the peaks if you assume the 15% loss factor. What's with the crooked snorkel alignment? A dyno test with that jog in the accordion piece might have hurt your results somewhat, but at least you
know where you started before your next set of mods.

Crooked snorkel alignment was us being lazy and just doing a quick filter swap...I suppose between that and not doing any relearn I might have lost some potential improvement, but I expected to see some improvement no matter what. I actually lost 6hp.:(

i have 2 questions:

1. what is a firehawk? what is the story there? engine? mods?

2. where did that orange z06 come from? custom paint i assume. looks very nice....to this disgruntled Texas Longhorn.

heheh.....well, it's supposed to be a torch red Z06, but I was too lazy to correct the color in PhotoShop.

Yeah, almost 600hp - that Firehawk was badass. Had a 4 point cage in it, and about 1 million gages.

Nice numbers! Now what do you mean about stock, the shifter boot must be worth some hp.:lol: Looks like you guys had fun. I also love dyno days.

Wow, I guess that Firehawk belongs to Harlan, the guy who pulled a Bike. The video is floating around somewhere in the CF.

What was the temperature that day? I think the way you have the intake crooked like that, cost you some HP. The air supposed to enter the throttle body as straight as possible without turbulence.
