Frank/Les:

Impressive numbers. So what do those numbers mean at the crank? Both of these cars are not heavily modded right? just cold air/ram air and prts. Or have you guys made some improvements lately.

Mike, they both have Vortex intakes. Les has Corsa Indys and I have PRTs. Divide the numbers by .85 to figure power at the crank.

Trust me, the Donaldson lags behind no other air filter out there. Use it with the cold air cover and watch out!

I got my car dynoed at Breathless bone stock and I think I'll probably go with a Donaldson. Maybe someday I'll get a chance to redyno after the intake and see what kind of difference.

Comparing my dyno to FCalmes and Fubu's is interesting cause it not just the increase in peak hp but how the hp is over the entire powerband... must be quite a ride in those cars with only an intake and exhaust.

With only the B&B PRTs and Corsa Indys being the only difference between the two, seems to be about even as far as hp and torque gains with either exhaust.

After I have my X pipe installed I'm going to have my Z dynoed on the Dynojet system with the win pep software and lets see what happens. FRC Tom was kind enough to point me in the right direction. All the ram air or cold air systems will give you a good JOLT! FUBU69/LES CUT THAT SHROUD! LOL

Guys ... that is funny how your RPM Max Power is higher then mine, which on my sheet says 5550 RPM ... I did 345.4 HP and 355.3 @ 4550 RPM - on the same dyno, a day before ... I guess you guys told breathless to adjust their dyno didn't you? Hehe .. I have heard so many stories about those guys, I dunno who's #'s to trust .. this is why I only trust a more reputable dyno, a DynoMax *such as Cartek here in Jersey has* - not that Mustang Dyno Breathless was using at the Cruise-in ...hmmmm.. May I add that the Z06 rev-limiter kicks in at 6400 RPM - to save belts and pulleys .. , so I guess it's safe to say I did 365 HP @ rear wheels ... something like HallTech claimed with their TRIC - which I also have installed - at the crank, putting me at 415-425 HP area? Who knows .. will post true #'s soon.

Frnak/Les,

did you guys dyno the cars before adding the BPP Vortex? Curious what the increase was after the mod.

Vince, we have no baseline/delta, correct. Frankly I don't trust the numbers. I did a little due diligence with the help of our very own FRC TOM. He knows alot more than anyone I know. In fact Frank and I did the math and calculated 424hp at the crank! No way my Z is is doing that #! Regards,Les

What about any correction factors for the temperature, barometric pressure, and humidity?

CP, No we did not factor that imfo in. FUBU69/LES BTW CP/ANYBODY,is that type of imfo suppose to appear on the Dyno docs?

Dyno's differ place to place if they don't correct for all variables of weather and altitude.
So it is hard to compare different dyno's to one another sometimes.

Jim, here are Frank's and my Z06 #s from the CF Cruise In from this past May. I ran over 360 HP with 372LBS of torque. Frank and I both have complete Vortex Systems. I run with Corsa Indys and Frank with PRTS. We watched several Z's on the Dyno that day including RATS. Rat and I ran about the same. Please note that Rat and I had just installed the NEWLY designed carbon fiber Power Duct from BPP. We also ran on BPP Mustang dyno. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_eek.gif FUBU69/LES BTW I will be probably going with your Sidewinder/Tric combo on my current '02 EB/MOD RED Z06 that I have been driving for over a week. Just waitng for your results. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_cool.gif

Who cares about the numbers... the good info here, is an '01 & '02 Dynoed... Same Dyno... Same Day, similar mods... and the '02 is showing about 5 RWHP, and 3 RWTQ!

That is good news for all! /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_wink.gif

Dave, your right. I'm only 200 miles away from Dynoing my '02 and Don527's 01 [both bone stock]. Cant wait to report back. I am going to try to put together a video and send it to JC so he can format/edit. Les /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_cool.gif

I had my car dyno'd bone stock a few weeks ago at 330/330 SAE. I'm putting in a Vortex intake, BPP Power Duct, and Corsa Indys this week. We're doing a dyno day here on the 8th of Sept so I'll let everyone know exactly what those mods will get you on the Z since they are so popular.

This is on a dynojet dyno...which was showing to be very accurate and not overly optimistic.
