finally got a chance to open up the JB4 w/ the *almost-auto-tuning today in Mexico...way better than the jb3..but that might be because i've installed a chargepipe since then too, but power delivery is way better in this..

Alright so I got my DP's installed today at Cobb. The install went well, there was some weird rattling that we could not figure out where it came from. We ended up leaving it, and after driving around on it since about 2PM, it seems like it's gone for the most part. I have no idea where it came from or what it was...

The most concerning thing to me was the dyno (mustang dyno). Honestly I don't know enough about dyno's to go off on tech speak, but we did a pre and post dyno. Let's just say the change from pre to post was not even +5 HP/TQ. I'm too lazy to get the actual chart out of my car since it was so worthless. I know for a fact that there should be more than 5HP/TQ difference for DP's, so I can only think that there's something to the way they are dynoing these cars. I was obviously hesistant anyways when I saw Wookie's dyno before I went in...and then pulled a 310/352 baseline (pre-install 15.4 PSI). I was like okay that's not bad. I think my post numbers were like 314/356 (15.1 PSI)? Or something like that...

For those that went to the dyno day, you know how we used the coil packs and had to hook it up that way to get actual #'s. Well the way they do it at Cobb is, the guy sits in the car and revs it up to a certain RPM and then "calibrates" it. Calculations are then used based off of RPM's to show your torque? I'm not too familiar, and Roger should probably be able to chime in since he talked to Calvin@Cobb more extensively. I think it's obvious there's something not quite right when I dyno 310 with FMIC/DP/Intake. He also did the pull in 3rd gear, and not 4th.

Cliffs - car's fast as a rocket, did my install pretty quick 1-1.5 hrs, but I don't really believe that they are dynoing BMW's correctly.

Anyone know a good place with a dynojet?

Haha now that I think about it more...based on Cobb's dyno's...

Wookie - 288/328
Some black e92 that likes to drive fast down Park - 336/377

Wookie > Black e92 but my #'s still lower than Black e92 and I have full bolt on minus meth/catback

Joe has a dyno queen!

Ha...exactly why I don't put much stock in dyno numbers. The quarter mile gives a much better represention of a car's potential, IMO.

Went today to see what it would run before the tune. Half the dudes there thought I was crazy. A group of guys said " your going to drive that thing......." I was like yeah why not.... On my 5th run I lined up next to his Charger which sounded amazing. Much to my supprise I ran a 13.7 to his 14.1 I got a good laugh out of that, espically being stock vs his modded Hemi 5.7.

That could be do-able, yeah. Anyone else interested?

So far so good, I've only had it in for a day and only got to really get up on it a few times, but I definitely feel the "smoother" power delivery that everyone mentions.

I'm interested. I might get bored of my car quickly but will extend the offer to drive someone else's car to see if I can get an extra couple tenths out of it. Hopefully track prep will be good and they give us room to drive around the water box.

I'm so glad I got Valentine's Day worked into this past weekend. Now I don't have to join the crowds tomorrow and can just chill this week.
