I know some of you already know, but I had this procharger put on about a month ago at exotic performance plus. At that time, I ended up with 450/432 on their mustang dyno. Got it back to KC, and it was putting down 460/404 on a dynojet. We thought maybe it was hitting the knock sensors, as it was only getting 6lbs of boost. Had it retuned, put a smaller pulley on, and took it back. 464/405 :wtf: . 6lbs again!!! Well these guys (and they are great guys) brought my car back Indiana to retune it and find out where the 2 pounds of boost went. Long story short, their boost gauge was faulty, and I was never putting out 8lbs. These guys got it back, did note that it was having knock, retuned it, and upped me to 10lbs of boost, installed a boost gauge, and the AWHK. 495/459!!! Can't wait to get this car back here to see what it can do at the track. GOD I love this car. It's like a bad affliction. Hopefully, after my rear end blows up and I get a new one, I can take it back to these guys for a forged bottom end. These guys will also put a video up of the car on the dyno. Also, I'm going to get them to come on as a supporting vendor. Video's not up yet, but it will be at exoticperformanceplus.com

That is awesome bud; gratz.

495/459--WOW. What a ride!

If the old adage is true that you don't want to go over an additional 50% of the stock HP (600HP at the crank in this case), don't add any more power!! You are right there!! :D

What octane gas are you using at 10 lbs of boost?

Definitely keep us posted, as I am very interested in seeing how a car boosted to 10lbs lives!! That is awesome!

That's cool. We'll hook up. And thanks guys. Luna, you're right, they say that 500 on their dyno is their cutoff. It's 92 octane, but it has an air-to-air intercooler, which does afford some additional protection. Any more, and I'll definitely need a forged bottom end. Any of you guys ever come thru KC, just PM me, and you can check it out, if for nothing else, because it's something different.

Mark's car is indeed stock except for the Corsa and the ProCharger. This car is indeed impressive! We added some BMR parts to help control the dreaded wheelhop while it was at my shop, I'll try to get additional pic's added to my website today. We also installed a boost gauge into the ash tray, it looks really trick there. See you in a few hours, Mark. Bob

I thought that a dyno calculates horsepower based upon torque. In all dyno graphs, the torque and horsepower graphs should cross at 5250 rpm. HP=(TQ X RPM) / 5250 (provided the graphs use the same rpm scaling). Am I missing something?

Remember to check the BMR parts a couple of times they tend to need re-tightening after time and abuse !

Please post pics of this! I have been struggling with a good place to put a boost gauge, so I will be very curious to see that!
