    Hi Joel!

    If I get higher numbers @ the Summernats thi s weekend can I send you a sheet for an update?

    Hoping the numbers will be up - the numbers up there at the moment are from just after the car was put back together. Everything has now been worn in, it's an outside dyno, so I won't have the increased humidity / depleted oxygen in the air issue, had the whole cooling system flushed and I've cleaned out the air filter Worst comes to worst and I'm a few HP behind I'll take the filter off for the finals run - did that last year and pulled 6hp out of my backside

    As far as I can tell - I'm a shoe in for gold - but I've seen an S2000 at scrutineering... Let's just hope he's either gone turbo or hasn't had much head work done. Got beaten by an S2000 last year..... They make me nervous. But last year it made 171.0Hp. I'm making 170.9 before everything wore in....

    I have a socket set and a bottle of octane booster in my corner.....

    Cross your fingers and think of a number between 171 and 185 for me!

    Until next time, longwindedly yours,

    Lysh

    lysh.. have you also considered a few simple tricks?
    remove power steering and a/c belts so your engine isn't wasting power on them for the run.
    install a davies craig electric waterpump and controller so your engine doesnt lose power pushing water thru itself...

    you may be surprised at the difference it makes....

    i'll update your results for sure..

    Hmmmmm..... I'd been toying with the water pump idea for a while - ran out of money in the budget to do it during the big engine swap

    The AC belt I can live without - but this year I'm doing the Go2Whoa and grass events too, so the power steering has to stay... Until the finals. If I'm getting beaten by the S2000 again LOL Looks like I need to pull out ye-olde tool chest again! (Dammit Joel! i just spent the morning detailing it LOL Now I know no matter how hard I try I'm gonna get grubby hands on it. LOL)

    Thanks much! I'll keep ya posted! (I'm a paid member now too (as of about 5 mins ago) - about bloody time eh?)

    You and me both! Thanks Nan - and thanks Wingnut! Hang over seems to be subsiding - so I'll be down there this arvo too.

    Don't know why they decided to start it on new years day. *sniffs air* If I still smell like booze - should I even drive?? Or should I just shower 1st??

    I need some hash browns.....

    Fingers crossed for a run time this arvo - it's a warmish day here, but there's an awesome cool breeze that the car will love!

    For anyone who's interested - my dyno run is at 1.30pm tomorrow (FRIDAY).

    As for Go2Whoa & the grass events.... I still need to sign up! But they should be happening either tomorrow or Saturday

    Thanks! Quick update - made finals for dyno and Go2Whoa yesterday!

    Only pulled 153hp - lost 20hp somewhere I think going straight from go 2 whoa to the dyno may have done it - car would've been a bit hot! (wearing a motorbike helmet in an NX coupe is NOT fun - even when you're under 5 ft tall!)

    Hoping for 170hp on Sunday That S2000 is there again this year - beating me again this year... He pulled 172hp yesterday.

    Here's to the finals!

    can this thread be cleaned and lysh's posts be merged with her thread? This is a dyno numbers w/ proof thread only.

    Thanks.

    and not to be a complete wanker, good luck lysh.

    Thanks Blaze

    I try to keep it dyno related!! In my own (admittedly) long winded manner

    (Sorry Blaze - this isn't to have a go at you - most of the following is dyno related - I'm just too tired to post it elsewhere!)

    As a final update - I have a new trophy It's another 2nd place - but hey, this year it was close! Last year he beat me by 60Hp. This year he beat me by 6Hp It's the same numbers - just a different combination. Last year = 106.2 this year = 160.2 - so still down on Hp, need a re-tune now that everything's worn in.

    Next mods = electric fuel pump (Thanks Joel!) bigger throttle body (prolly from an XF Falcon - you can jam those on everything), race fuel and a re-tune

    I got in early this morning and pulled the front bar off before the run - found 1/2 my missing HP from the qualifiers LOL

    S2000 knows I'm after him now. He ran 166Hp today - down on his 170 from the qualifiers.

    Keep a look out! There's a REALLY good chance that I'm gonna be in Street Machine!! Prolly the Nats edition - the journo pulled me aside for a chat after my run this morning - brought the photographer over and everything. So you'll get to see what my car looks like minus front bar - and you get to see what I look like - on 1 knee in front of the car, cheesy grin, sunburnt as all hell and the sun in my eyes, and a big thumbs up Don't think it'll be a full page or anything, just a little excerpt - then again - he did grab my number....... (Hmmmm.... Now I think about it..... I hope he was a journo...... LOL)

    And lastly - didn't get anything for Go2Whoa. I panicked in the finals today and bogged down in 1st Was only down 0.4 seconds on my qualifier LOL I get stage fright with all those people in the grandstands watching. Gives me something to go for next year!

    Until next time - you can live without the run sheet. I'm tired, sunburnt and going to bed now. Will post sheet later.

    Lysh

    P.S. Many thanks to everyone for your support - I appreciate knowing the club is behind me even if most of you can't make it in person!

    nicely done!
    ignore cypress, he likes to make people feel bad to make himself feel better. thats why he's banned!

    feel free to post what you like in here, it's my thread and i'll clean it up when i think it's appropriate.
    you haven't posted anything that isn't related.

    once again, congrats on the result! hopefully you'll get him next time!

    next time loosen the pulley of the power steering pump and remove the belt, would take like 2 mins that goopy p/s fluid is a lot of extra strain... better still.. get an mr2 electric power steering pump! LOL

    Meh - Blaze didn't bother me - as you could probably tell from my extra long post LOL

    LOL @ myself for the fuel / water pump - i DID mean waterpump! I've already done the fuel pump LOL That proves I was tired. LOL

    Tried for the belts! I can't get in there to get them off! So I ripped the front bar off instead LOL Had to take something apart to make me feel like I was gonna do better LOL

    Hmmmm...... Power steering pump..... Water pump....... I need to go shopping! Thanks again! Next year will be 3rd year lucky - and with the race fuel and tune up I should get him. If I can find it - run sheet will get uploaded tonight. I put it somewhere before I went to bed, now I can't remember which somewhere it was.
