Ok everyone.... Finally got to SP Engineering Today....

The new test results are just what I expected.
Gains in RWHP and in Torque...

RWHP gain of 7
Torque gain of 4.5


Test Car: 2003 IS300 - 5 Speed w/ Stock Air Filter and 4,090 miles...

Results

DYNO Run #001 .... Baseline - 100 % stock
Max POWER = 185.7
Max TORQUE = 194.0


DYN0 Run #003... My Custom Intake with Stock filter only..!!
Max POWER = 192.6
Max TORQUE = 198.5







Big thanks goes to "Kona" a local .net member who wanted an Intake and also volunteered his car to be used for DYNO Testing...

Many thanks to SP Engineering for all there help and great staff!!!!!
They independently DYNO tested this IS300 !!!! :bigSmile:

I also want to thank IS300gte and many others for all of your input and guidance along the way..

For those of you who may get red X's here is a link with more DYNO sheets scans and pictures of the actual DYNO.


Thank You
Joe Z :bigSmile:

Hey Steve I saw his car, but maybe I missed him inside.....

I believe the HP will be just about the same on an Auto... But like alot of people say it is hard to get an accurate read out on our auto's... That is why new tests have been done on this 5 Speed....

Hard to find good test cars... It's not like I own 3 of these "Beast's" :lol:

Thanx
Joe :chill:

These numbers are much more accurate and readable compared to my first DYNO results that were done on an 02' auto....

Much Thanx to "Kona" a local .net member who wanted an Intake and also volunteered for his car to be used for DYNO Testing...

Since the car is brand new, I only opted to reset the ECU after the intake was installed.. I hope to go back in a week or two for more DYNO's after the ECU has fully recalibrated and also add a drop in filter to see overall gains..

So when you coming to Cali??? 8) j/k

thank you for the updated dyno results JoeZ. that is very good stuff to know. 7 rwhp is pretty serious and all that before the ECU recalibrates itself fully :eek: . have you thought of having someone with a manual dyno with an S-AFC tuned? just curious cause i was thinking of that for my next mod along with a xerd mid pipe.

For those of you who are still getting the famous Red X's try this link...



I think for some people, it depends on what your internet security options are set too... or what PC you are using, .. home, school, work, etc....
I can see them on my home PC but not my work... So now i will repost pictures from work and i will see them on this post..... Weird!!!

Some cool pix too...

Hope this works...

Hey JOE Z do you plan on doing some more dyno tests with other fiters such as trd,blitz,toms or even plp?
I plan to put a Blitz drop in filter in this 03' test car and go back in a week or so to see overall gains with new filter and a fully re-calibrated ECU...

I would love to sit there and test every filter on the market, but I just don't have access to all these filters and DYNO testing is not cheap....
But I will do my best to get more results out of different filters..
