Question Dynoed the M3

this is a chasis dyno, i removed the wheels...so i have to weigh my wheels to do the equation to get my rough HP and TRQ
a guess is that i subtract about 15-20 hp...as someone on bf.c stated,

I'd say the cut out at 5500 rpm with the dip in A/F is due to the drop out of the vanos unit... could be a faulty vanos valve... or sensor. Not a big deal...

Dude your putting down some damn good numbers... I'd be happy with those... but add about 30 horses and thats what I got... .. it looks normal... do so research for A/F on other M3's your year and mileage... and you'll probably have the same results... bf.c is a good start to search.

Good luck,

Les

The numbers look about perfect for the car. I'd expect when you put it on a dynojet you'd put down 200/200.


I'm not a fan of dynapack's because a lot of people (especially on bf.c) try and show these numbers and claim them without telling people it's a chasis dyno. It cannot be used for comparitive purposes.


And those AFR's are all kinds of weird. What did they use? Was it a sniffer? Was it properly placed? Once again this dyno shop can go fuck itself. Go to a real one please because this doesn't look proper at all. And if so you're all kinds of lean to the point where it's scary and unsafe for your motor.


edit: i'm looking at your AFR's once again and that just looks ridiculous. Honestly something wasn't done right and I doubt your car has a problem. It's your dyno shop and their incompentency in my opinion. What was your AFR at idle according to them?
