So why don't they give you wheel horse power, should of had a big fan blowing cold air at front..
Now some of you have dyno figures, maybe you should try another dyno and compare.. maybe this one is not accurate as most of you expected way more.. Karl will know what figures where like or should be close to..
Was there not any good powered Volvo's...?
Faero.. Phil.. you'll just tear the rollers out.. :lol:

The local lads who regularly use it reckon it's pretty accurate. 277bhp for a stage 3 9-5 Aero (which is effectively what Mr Bens is IIRC) is pretty much on the money. Perhaps peopleS expectations were a little to high?

Mine made 230bhp with obvious boost leaks. Stage 3 B204. It sounds about right tbh.

I've been thinking of organising one on the south coast. Just not sure there would be enough people left who would be interested in it for it to be worthwhile.

I did 267Bhp with a stage 3 on its o.e T25 turbo on a dyno.

Either way im up for a better ventilated dyno, happy with my torque figure though that's bang on....though I shouldn't be above a 2010 dame edna stage 3...I'm sure they came out the factory at 260bhp!

IMHO you have to consider a few things before you knock the dyno/operator i.e. weather, outside temps state of tune/issue with the car and parts changed since last session.

My Viggen made 255bhp so was not happy as on my normal dyno it has made 299bhp and 388ftlbs but that was 10k miles ago and there has been hardware changes, new everything, DI, new Forge acuator, MAF, intake sensor trying to elliminate on going problems with a low Mreg.

Karl and the dyno/operator found that the acuator was not set up right and there is possible a fueling issue hence the low figures, to me it's not an exact science (not got a clue on software) so I only go on what Karl says, as you should do after all he knows his stuff so when its sorted I'll go to my usual Dyno and have another go.

I've always looked at the Dyno simply as a tool that provides you with a benchmark, to show what you've achieved so far, how comparable it is to other cars/engines in a similar "Stage" of tune, where and how there is room for further tuning tweaks and optimisation and generally if the car/engine is running well.

I'd certainly not get upset if you didn't achieve the figures you were expecting, especially as your figures are about right for your current set up Ben, you should be really happy with what you achieved and use it to push forward, especially when you think that just a couple of months ago your car was still a 2.0!

As I understand it there were no AFR figures provided either, which would've been able to explain a lot more info - so another thing to consider the next time you roll the car - information is the most important factor, so get as much of it as you can.

Think of the session as a guide and use the positive to reassure you that you're on the right track and any areas that you're not so happy with as a starting point for your next foray into ramping up your tune.

But from where I'm standing, your figures are very respectable bud!

Onwards!

Yamas!

Well after my V70 R seemed to have a binding front brake or wheel bearing issue at this RR day, I've kept a very close eye on excessive heat build up this week, and everything seems good to me. Unless whatever the issue was freed itself at this day, then I'm at a loss to explain it....

You gave it a good trash mark?
Maybe something was stuck between your caliper and disc causing the heat and the smell? If not have you tryed banging your cat (no pun intended :lol: ) it could be that that's no good and had it
